Media day was a lot of fun, but there were a few quotes from the Washington Wizards that stood out from the rest.

The NBA season is less than a month away. I repeat, the NBA season is less than a month away.

It’s been a long, tortuous few months without NBA basketball, but we’re getting there. Today, the Washington Wizards will start training camp. Soon, they’ll be taking the court for preseason games. Before we know it, they’ll be tipping off in Dallas to open their season against Kristaps Porzingis and Luka Doncic.

Before all of that, though, we heard from the Wizards’ players and coaches during media day, the unofficial start of the NBA season for fans everywhere. It’s the day where nothing really happens, but at the same time, so much happens. It’s just enough “action” to get our mouths watering for more basketball, but not nearly enough to satisfy.

But media day isn’t just worthless fanfare. Quite the opposite. It’s the first time we get to hear, in earnest, from a lot of the Wizards. And this season, there are more questions than ever despite having lower expectations than in recent years.

With so many new faces, both on the roster and in the front office, there’s a lot of uncertainty and speculation about how this season will look. From basic questions like ‘who will be starting?’ to more franchise-altering ones like ‘Will Bradley Beal sign his extension?’, there’s simply a lot we don’t know yet.

However, some of the media day quotes stood out and shed some light on what we should expect. Here are the five that quotes from Wizards media day that should get fans excited.
