The man who became arguably the franchise’s most beloved player ever bids adieu to the fans and the city he once owned. Bullets Forever has the quotes: “I know it didn’t end like I would have liked. I had a great time playing in Washington – they made me feel like a rock star while I was here. I wish I could have took them further than the second round. I wanna thank Mr. and Mrs. Pollin, Ernie, Eddie, every teammate I went to war with on that basketball court. Thanks [sic.] you for believing in me. I wanna thank Mr. Leonsis for giving me a chance to regain some basketball respect back in my career, and I hope nothing but the best from him and the Wizards. Last but not least I want to thank the great fans of Washington. It was an honor playing for you guys for 8 years. I hope when it’s all said and done. I entertained you when you entered those doors at the MCI/Verizon Center and can forgive me as a man for the mistakes I’ve made.”
