Tom Thibodeau


The Wizards practiced Thursday and are heading to Miami where they'll play the Heat on Friday, but from this point forward the schedule gets significantly tougher. 


Randy Wittman finally has the comfort of a three-year contract going into this season with a roster retooled with veterans and keeping the core of the Wizards intact.


Sam Cassell will soon be a left coast kind guy.


A power shift could be taking place in the East if Tom Thibodeau is no longer coach of the Chicago Bulls, who the Wizards deposed in the first round of this year's playoffs. 


When the Wizards find out their second-round opponent, they'll only have one day to prepare for the Atlanta Hawks or Indiana Pacers.
