Washington Wizards guard Martell Webster flew halfway across and when then team arrived at Dulles International Airport in Northern Virginia on Saturday, Webster went to his car with intents to head home. Only, he had left his keys in Kansas City, Mo.
He had one of the apps on his phone to enter the car, but couldn’t start it.
“Good thing I have a wife that loves me. She came and got me,” Webster told The Washington Post. “I slept in my car for two hours, I’m not going to lie. I called my wife I was like, ‘You know what it is 3:30. I’ll let you sleep a couple more hours but you need to come get me.’ And she got me; we’re good.”
“As long as I had shelter I was good,” Webster told the Post. “By the time I had figured out my keys were in Kansas City everybody was gone. I didn’t want to call anybody, I didn’t mind. I’m from the Northwest, we do weird stuff like sleep in our cars – not a problem.
Minnesota Timberwolves Kevin Love continues to apply pressure to his teams front-office, as he wants more help on the court. But he is pleased with some of the offseason player departures from the team, guys that Love considered “bad blood”.
Per the Pioneer Press: “In a telephone interview from England, where the U.S. men’s basketball team is preparing for the Olympics, Love doubled down on comments he made about his waning patience with the Timberwolves. Love, who is entering his fifth NBA season and the first year of a four-year, $62 million contract extension.
“If we get everybody back healthy, with Ricky (Rubio) back healthy, if (Brandon) Roy comes in healthy, and if we can get off to a good start, we’re going to be good. But we really have to add as many as pieces as we possibly can, veteran guys,” he said. “There was some bad blood in that locker room we were able to get out of there and smooth things out. That should help us out going forward.”
Asked to elaborate, Love responded: ‘Just what I said. We had bad blood in the locker room. We got that out.’ Forwards Michael Beasley and Anthony Randolph, guard Martell Webster and center Darko Milicic were the most notable players Minnesota jettisoned this offseason.
Go ahead and listen to Ricky Rubio, Kevin Love, Anthony Tolliver, Wes Johnson, Michael Beasley, Martell Webster and Nikola Pekovic of the Minnesota Timberwolves karaoke NYSNC’s ‘Tearing Up My Heart’, it just might make your ears bleed.
Beasley is perhaps the best.
