Randy Wittman couldn’t possibly think this week could get any worse, right? Wrong.
Randy Wittman has been fined $20K for cursing during post-game press conference after #wizards' loss to PHI.

After losing to the lowly Philadelphia 76ers this past week, Randy Wittman was visibly upset during the post game press conference and might have let his temper get the best of him. Here’s the exact quote from the presser that resulted into the fine:
Well, you tell me what you thought the problem was. You watched the game. Commitment to f****** playing defense. It’s what it is,” he said. It’s what it boils down to, all right? It’s a thing our guys haven’t learned and I’ve got to figure out a way.
In all honesty, I can’t really blame Wittman for getting a bit out of hand during the press conference. Washington hasn’t looked nearly as good as we thought they would have coming out of the gate, and coaching an inconsistent team will surely spark some emotions. Randy Wittman has always spoken his mind in the past, and I don’t think a $20,000 fine will change a thing.
The Wizards will try to get back on the winning track this Wednesday night against the 76ers.
