Indications are that the Wizards would like to bring FA-to-be Martell Webster back next season, so I asked Webster
how he felt about returning. Answer, in short: Count me in.
Answer, in long: "It's a great fit for me. I enjoy the atmosphere here: coaching staff, training staff and most important, my teammates. And it's competitive. And very family-oriented. When you have that as an option, it's hard to defer away from that." Sounds as if the Wizards have done a decent job of changing the culture of not too long ago, when lockerroom gun-play seemed to be all the rage. In fact, Webster gave higher marks to his current locale than his time with the Blazers. He spent his first five seasons with them, then two with the Timberwolves before signing last summer with the Wizards. "Portland had individuals I enjoyed being around," he said. "This is the first time I've enjoyed all aspects of my team." He didn't include his stint in Minnesota for comparison because he was injured for the majority of the time. "I never really established a rhythm there," he said.
