We all know the Wizards have had a rough go of it the past few decades. Three seasons with less than 20 wins since 1999, coaches eating at Subway, the gun stuff, the knee stuff, the other knee stuff, the other other knee stuff drafting Kwame Brown on purpose, having the worst ever version of Michael Jordan — you know, classic Wizards nonsense.
But I’m not sure things have ever been this bad. In yet another season where the Wiz are in last place and challenging the all-time record for futility, they’ve been so horrible that their players can’t even get excited about their own birthdays. From WUSA9.com:
Back on December 7th, Seraphin refused to celebrate his 23rd birthday out on the town, even with his roommate Taylor and girlfriend Allison pestering him that he deserved to have some fun. “We keep losing. I feel guilty to celebrate. Not this year,” said Seraphin in a frustrated tone.
This is so sad. Kevin Seraphin is so destroyed by the Wizards’ season that he can’t bring himself to enjoy his one and only 23rd birthday. You can’t get that back, you guys. 23 is a once in a lifetime celebration, but Kevin Seraphin had to literally say, “Not this year.” Truly heart-wrenching.
To make matters worse, the Wizards played on December 7, the very date of Seraphin’s big 2-3. Not surprisingly, they lost, dropping a road game to the Hawks to move to 2-14. Worst birthday ever.
