Antawn Jamison officially joined the Bullets and Wizards Alumni Association on Saturday night, celebrating the former all-star power forward's five-and-a-half seasons in Washington.
“I miss this place,” said Jamison. “It’s something about walking down that hallway. Just the memories and all the things that as an individual I accomplished here and the growth of me growing up, becoming a man and so forth.”
Jamison averaged 20.8 points and 8.9 rebounds per game during his time with the Wizards, making two All-Star teams. He played for several other teams in his 16-year career, but called his time in Washington the "staple" of his time in the NBA. Current Wizards coach Randy Wittman said that Jamison's biggest impact was make through his professionalism.
“First-class guy, first-class person, number one. Forget about the player,” said Wittman, who arrived as an assistant coach in Jamison’s final season in Washington. “When I first got here, before the trade, he was just a joy. If you could have 15 of those I wouldn’t have as many headaches. So that’s the first thing with Antawn, the class he both played with and held himself off the floor.”Back to the Washington Wizards Newsfeed
