The Washington Wizards are having a dream of a postseason so far. After victory over the Chicago Bulls, the Wiz now lead by a game over the Indiana Pacers in the conference semi finals. However, there is just one more thing that the Wizards players would love to see.
That would be to see their coach, Randy Wittman pay off his wager to the team. Before their series with the Bulls, coach Wittman promised that if his team were victorious, he would attempt a dunk for them.
Wittman is yet to deliver on his promise so far but some of his players are unsure as to whether the 54-year-old can even achieve the task.
“You think that's possible? You'd think that's even possible?” said Drew Gooden whilst guard Bradley Beal was a little more optimistic:
“Witt got to be a man of his word,” Beal said “He was supposed to do it last round. He had up until the first game to dunk. You know Witt, he needs a couple days to get stretched out. Hopefully he'll do it. I think he can do it. Maybe.”
Wittman played in the league for nine years, mostly for the Atlanta Hawks. The coach is 6'6" tall and so definitely possess the size for the athletic feat. However whether he still possesses the athletic ability for a vertical jump of that magnitude remains to be seen.
The Wizards play so far this postseason definitely deserves a reward and I can think of nothing better than watching Wittman attempt a dunk. Hopefully the Wizards will record it for entertainment purposes.
