Nice column:

Wizards have established a losing tradition in Washington
These days, everybody uses the Nationals as the standard of "bad" in Washington sports. And they are really bad. Their won-lost percentage in the five years since they moved to the District is .424. So, what do you think the Wizards' win percentage is since '79? That's 31 seasons. It's .423!
In the past 10 seasons, every NBA team, even the Los Angeles Clippers, has had a season with at least 47 wins! Except the Wizards, of course. They haven't had more than 45 wins since 1978-79. (The Bobcats are in just their sixth season, so they don't count.)
Memo to Leonsis: There's little here that has to be saved. Do as you please. You can't do worse.

Ted Leonsis is the Washington Capitals (hockey) owner, who will be taking over the Wiz.
