The Wizards and their coaching staff game plan were to talk trash, and attack Lebron James on every play and then talk more trash and complain. Their media has been doing the same thing and following their steps. I guess that’s what our nation capital is known for.
The “attack Lebron James” plan hasn’t worked for them as Lebron James hammered them in game 1 and 2 averaging 31 points, 7.5 rebounds and 8 assists and came one rebound shy of a triple double in game two.
The trash talking only made them an embarrassment to the rest of the league. Charles Barkley called them the â€œDumbest Team In History” before the series started.
Meanwhile, Haywood doesn’t get suspended by the league following his flagrant foul on James in Game 2. So, what did he do? Trash talk. But this time against headÂ coach Mike Brown.
Apparently, he didn’t like the way the Cavs coach came out on the floor in both Games after their confrontation in Game one and then also came out to check on James after the flagrant foul in Game two.
Here is what he said to a Washington post reporter:
“You know, any time LeBron gets touched, Mike runs out there like LeBron got shot or something. Calm down Mike. It’s not that serious. We’re not trying to take him out. It’s all within the confines of the game,” Haywood told reporters in Washington. “I don’t see how coaches should be running out on the court like that anyway. Isn’t there a coach’s box? Since we’re talking about the confines of the league rules, he shouldn’t be out of the box.”
Maybe they will have a better chance if they just stop talking and start playing basketball.
