Why did the Wizards keep Randy Wittman?
A little bit out of the blue but I was wondering this heading into thisseason. The consensus on .net here is that the Wizards are a much improved team. Now some people (like myself) think they could be a potential playoff team while others have them just missing it. My question is, since the Wizards are bringing in a new culture of basketball this upcoming season, why didn't the Wizards GM hire a coach that would have been better? I'm just not a fan of Wittman and his .331 winning percentage as a coach. Do you guys believe he is the right man for this team because I really don't understand what kind of coaching styel he has (uptempo or defensive minded, etc. etc)? I hope I am wrong and the Wizards (mainly John Wall) really have a good season or at least a promising season but Wittman does worry me.
I have no idea how he has stuck in the nba for so long. Career record of 118-238, but he still has some how managed to trick 3 teams into hiring him as head coach. I am just baffled.
Beat me to it.
He is the KWAME Brown of head coaches lol
Haha that's perfect. Keeping Randy Wittman as head coach made no sense to me. If they didn't want to bring anyone else in it would've made mre sense just to promote Sam Cassell. If the Wizards start out poorly, I wouldn't be surprised if Cassell got to take over.
Its one of life's great mysteries.

- How does Randy Wittman keep getting work?
I read somewhere online after the draft,that John Wall campaigned for them to keep Wittman....And toward the end of the season,Grunfied said he loved the improvement in the younger players Crawford, Booker,Singleton & Vesely..But word in Washington say that Wall will be 1 making the coaching decisions...And an easy going, mild mannered person like Wittman will allow him to do that.....
But i thought Nate McMillian would've been a better selection...
