Q. I was reading quotes from two years ago about how much you thought signing Blatche to an extension was a great idea. Two years later, does this qualify as your biggest disappointment of owning the Wizards’ thus far?
A. Yes — we made a mistake — although the NBA has had close to $250 million of amnestied players to date — sometimes you get a chance to take a mulligan under the new rules and that is what we did.
Q. Who bears the most responsibility for the fact that he didn’t work out in Washington?
A. We are all in it together — so we are all to blame. Buck has to stop with me though as owner. I appreciate Andray’s apology to the fans and I hope he is able to turn around his career.
Q. Given your belief in redemption, was it particularly hard to cut him loose?
A. No, it wasnt. It was in best interest of franchise.
