With a Twitter shoutout to John Wall and President Barack Obama, the Paul Pierce adventure in D.C. began on Saturday night.

Wall was one of the first of the Wizards to respond to the news on Twitter, welcoming his new teammate to the capital region.

Newly re-signed center Marcin Gortat was pleased, too.

Enough for two tweet, actually.

And the other half of Washington's young backcourt seemed excited about it, too.

What does it mean for D.C.? CSN's Chris Miller puts it into a little bit of perspective.
