Online sports magazine Purpose2Play, which focuses on sports with “positive and powerful stories based on good intention,” published a nice article about the Wizards this week.
The piece, which features an interview with CEO Todd Davis, Gerald “Sky Walker” Warrick, and James “Road Runner” Tyneal, touches on the Wizards’ early history, and explains how players make the team. More than technique and talent, players have to really enjoy interacting with crowds. Todd says:
“They love to see the kids having a great time. They love to see the community showing its spirit … This is more than just a game of basketball. It’s a way to bring communities together to work toward a common goal.”
