Introducing the Washington Wizards, the least likable team in all of professional sports

8 Comments

The Wizards’ disastrous ’09-’10 season apparently needed a proper bookend, so ESPN decided to close things up; in their Ultimate Team Rankings, ESPN rated Washington 122nd out of 122 professional sports teams in both ‘player likability’ and ‘fan relations’ (via Dan Steinberg of D.C. Sports Bog). Ouch. Shaun Livingston, Quinton Ross, and Alonzo Gee are clearly far more hateable than I ever would have imagined.

John Wall’s presence alone should prevent the Wiz from taking the title again next year, unless he happens to be a big Bourr√© player. I hear that doesn’t go over so well in D.C. these days.
