The losing has become so routine for the Wizards that the question seemed worth posing.
How hard is it to keep a positive mindset when you’ve lost 25 of your first 29 games?

Randy Wittman was joking, but it was hard to find anyone willing to laugh.
Randy Wittman is as frustrated as anyone by the Wizards’ horrid 0-8 start. But he has made a conscious effort to stroke his players’ egos instead of cracking the whip.
