At the beginning of the season, nobody expected the Wizards to be where they are right now. Led by the youth in the back-court of John Wall and Bradley Beal, they have taken the franchise to new heights.
After the Wizards’ improbable series win over the Bulls on Tuesday night, their twitter decided to have a little fun. 15/16 ESPN analysts picked the Bulls to win the series in some fashion. Mike Wallace was the lone wizard. The Wizards jokingly called the analysts “experts” further showing the impressive win by the comeback kids.
The Washington Capitals have announced they have relieved Adam Oates of head coaching duties and will not renew General Manager George McPhee’s contract. This was a change that was bound to happen. The only thing to say is: finally.

Well, with that roller coaster of a season over, changes are inevitable to come. If changes happen, they will be from the top down- a bit of trickle down, if you will.

Also, please listen to John Walton’s farewell address. It puts the perspective of the season into great words. You can listen here.
In a time where everything looks bleak, the Caps are still able to have fun. Forward Mikhail Grabovski found some free time to take his son, ‘lil Grabo, out onto the ice at Kettler after practice on April 12th.

We really hope this guy stays in DC.
As we reported earlier, TSN’s Cabbie Richards was in DC shooting for his segment on Sportcentre’s “Cabbie Presents.” We knew that some Caps would be in the segment, but we didn’t know how and why.
