Wizards to wear jersey patch honoring Abe Pollin

Wizards to wear jersey patch honoring Abe PollinWASHINGTON (AP) - The Washington Wizards will honor late owner Abe Pollin by wearing a patch on their jerseys for the rest of the season.

The black patch just under the jersey's right shoulder features the name "Abe." Two identical logos also appear on each side of the court at Verizon Center, the downtown arena built mostly with Pollin's money.

The team planned to wear the patch for the first time Thursday night for the Wizards' home game against the Boston Celtics.

Washington coach Flip Saunders thinks the team has picked a fitting way to pay tribute to Pollin.

"I wish we didn't have to wear it. I wish he was still here to watch us play," Saunders said. "We know he's always going to be watching us."

Pollin died Nov. 24 at 85. He bought the Wizards in 1964 and was the NBA's longest-tenured owner.
