Maybe the Wizards Should Fill the Roster With Redskins

So this isn’t actually Wizards news, but I found it interesting nonetheless…

Story from Redskins.com blog…
When offseason work started at Redskins Park, there was a group of guys that would regularly get together to play Around The World down on the basketball court. This seemed like it might make a decent blog item (although, obviously, it never panned out), and when I talked to the regular players, the same names kept coming up as the best shooters on the team: Carlos RogersDeAngelo Hall (which we knew), and … Lendy Holmes?

“Kid’s a freak,” Chris Horton said. “I like Lendy’s game. He can shoot right- and left-handed, so he changes up his shot as he goes around the court. And he’s a good athlete, you know? He can do it all.”

Fred Davis listed himself as the best, but acknowledged, “Lendy has a pretty good shot. Lendy can shoot a little bit. Other than that, I destroy everyone else.”

Carlos Rogers also listed himself as the best, but took time to compliment Holmes. “Lendy can shoot, so I got to give Lendy some credit. And I will say he can use both hands.” (The both-hands thing came up again and again. Holmes’s college teammate Malcolm Kelly claims that Holmes can effectively play ping-pong with a paddle in each hand.)

Holmes is 6’1, 201 LBS. Sounds like a cheap alternative as the third-string point guard…

I’m not surprised Carlos Rogers and DeAngelo Hall were considered the best shooters on the team. They’re both freak athletes who probably had basketball backgrounds.

Knowing the Wizards positional needs, if they were required to take in one Redskin and utilize him this season, which ‘Skin would you choose? Leave a comment below. And don’t forget about Washington’s new QB when making your decision.
