WASHINGTON (AP) — As the coach of the only NBA team without a victory this season, Randy Wittman is struggling to pick a starting lineup for the Washington Wizards. He can’t even zero in on an eight- or nine-man rotation, actually.
All the while, he needs to buoy his own flagging spirits and try to prevent his players from getting too down on themselves after a franchise-worst 0-9 start.
A loss at the Atlanta Hawks on Wednesday would make the Wizards the 13th team in NBA history to begin a season with a 10-game losing streak, according to STATS LLC.
Says Wittman: “This isn’t fun. You don’t sleep very good. You don’t eat very good. The bowl of pasta doesn’t taste (good) right now.”
