Even when the odds appeared stacked against Randy Wittman returning as coach in the final year of his contract, he didn't flinch.
The musical chairs being done with coaches around the NBA don't involve the Wizards, who are expected to soon extend a new deal to Randy Wittman.
When he was in the process of signing 10-day contracts, Drew Gooden made no secret that he intended to sign for the rest of the season with the Wizards.
When the Wizards point to the turnaround in their season, they'll reference the players-only meeting after the Nov. 16 home loss to the Cleveland Cavaliers in overtime.
The Wizards put up an inspired effort in erasing a 16-point deficit in Game 6, but for the third time in a row they lost at Verizon Center, and had their season ended by the Indiana Pacers.
