It is a story about overcoming odds, but mostly not overcoming odds

Wizards haven't been to the NBA playoffs since 1997
, haven't won
a playoff series since 1982
, and last captured the NBA championship all the way back in 1977
. Some of these dubious streaks may end soon, as the team currently sports a winning record
and is sending two players
to this weekend's NBA All-Star game, a feat they haven't accomplished
since Crocodile Dundee
was in theatres.
What kind of fans follow such a historically inept franchise? While other fan blogs earnestly recount
league happenings or their teams' wins and losses, the WIZZNUTZZ
have fondly embraced their team's parade of NBA losers and outcasts, building an online shrine to such former players such as 7'7" center Manute Bol
, perennial felon Rod Strickland
, unskilled backup center Jahidi White
("Who he play for???"
), and assorted petty criminals
. During the season they offer "incites" into the play of their lord and savior the reverend Kwame Brown
, the failed comeback
of Michael "Salieri"
Jordan, the NBA Championship of the Detroit Wizards
, and other edutaining commentary
on the league (for additional league commentary see: ChaunceyBillups
The Wizznutzz are currently beside themselves with their team's success, but they know that
the Wizznutzz story is a story about overcoming odds, but mostly not overcoming odds!!!!
Don't forget to buy a Jahidi thong
when you're done reading.
