08:12 AM ET 03.06 | Randy Wittman saw this one coming on Monday. From the body language of his players as they joked around in the locker room prior to tip-off, to their dancing and giggling in pregame warmups, Wittman knew that the result at the end of the night was going to resemble the 120-100 debacle that unfolded at Verizon Center on Monday night. ... "That's about as disappointed as I've been. I'll take full responsibility for this one," Wittman said. "I had a sense before the game we weren't ready to play. But I ain't going to put up with that again. Inexcusable and that's on me. I'll take responsibility for that, because I'm going to clean that up. That is unprofessional. I apologize to everybody that had to watch it."

This is not a new issue. We have known this for a while.

Wow, I remember just a few years ago when the Timberwolves were worse than this current Wizards team, oh yeah, their coach was a guy named Randy Wittman. So what's the lesson for NBA owners?

Send Them All To The D-League, Bro.

If the Celtics can get some of their young talent and or draft picks they should trade Ray Allen. Celtics would get younger and the Wiz get the Veteran Leadership.

Maybe they do not hate Allen enough to do that to him even if they benefit.

Wittman is a horrible coach.

You bet he is. I think he has a career win/loss pct just north of .300.
