Marcin Gortat's Gortatsburg Address is perfect

Friday night, the Wizards unleashed their secret weapon to topple the Cavaliers: Marcin Gortat delivering a speech in an Abraham Lincoln hat. Back at Media Day we wondered why Marcin Gortat was wearing an Abraham Lincoln hat for some of his pictures. During Friday night's game against the Cavaliers, we finally received our answer. The Wizards showed this video of Gortat addressing the crowd before the second half of their game against the Cavaliers. Clearly, it did the trick. John Wall went off for 17 points in the quarter as the Wizards pulled a way for the win. Here's the full transcript...

Believe it or not, there’s a professional sports franchise in D.C. that isn’t inspiring its lifelong fans to set fire to their team merchandise.

Kris Humphries has a lot to offer for the Wizards

Kris Humphries is more than just another big man who can step out and hit the mid-range jumper. He brings a ton of toughness and he's a very smart frontcourt player coming from the bench. Does this look familiar? One of the reasons why Marcin Gortat was given a five-year, $60-million contract with the Wizards this offseason was because of his pick and roll chemistry with John Wall. Gortat can, for the most part, set good, legal screens and gets to the basket quicker than most bigs in the NBA. That, plus very soft hands, allows him to catch even the most difficult of passes when...

Are you as bright as Garrett Temple? Take our quiz!

According to Marcin Gortat, Garrett Temple is the Wizards' brightest player. Can you match Temple's knowledge of geography? Depending on your perspective, this is either a funny anecdote from Marcin Gortat, or a very sad commentary on what constitutes being bright in Marcin Gortat's eyes. Gortat said Temple is the brightest guy on the team. "He can name all 7 continents like that." — Jorge Castillo (@jorgeccastillo) November 3, 2014 Gortat said Temple is the smartest guy on the team.
