Washington Wizards Getting Inside 2008-12-24

Washington Wizards Getting Inside 2008-12-24
DeShawn Stevenson saw his string of 275 consecutive starts come to an end Tuesday in Charlotte and, quite honestly, it should have ended much sooner than that.

Stevenson came to coach Ed Tapscott and requested that Tapscott put him and his 31.7 percent shooting percentage on the bench.

Tapscott took the diplomatic position when he talked about the move to the press, but inside he had to be rejoicing.

"In a real team gesture he basically told me: 'Tap, I'm struggling a bit; whey don't you let me come off the bench and see if I can get my swag back going against some second-line guys,'" Tapscott said. "I thought it an enormously gracious thing to say, so we're looking at different combinations with the lineup. He's the ultimate team guy and that's why I have so much respect for him."

Considering that the Wizards' next game is Christmas Day at Cleveland -- remember last year during the playoffs when Stevenson preposterously said LeBron James is overrated? -- Stevenson was probably just trying to make sure that he and James spend as little time as possible on the court together.

BOBCATS 80, WIZARDS 72: The Wizards have spent the entire season trying to find the bottom, and one day before Christmas they found it.

The Bobcats held the Wizards to just three points in the final four minutes to drop the Wizards to 4-22: the worst start in the franchise's 48-year history.

Caron Butler led the Wizards, who lost for the seventh time in a row, with 31 points.

Antawn Jamison was the only other Wizard to reach double-figures, finishing with 14.
