The Miami Heat are on one of the most improbable NBA Finals runs of all time. To a casual fan, the roster is largely unrecognizable. “Jimmy Butler” might ring a bell, but he’s far from a household name. “Duncan Robinson” might as well be your neighborhood barista.
Thankfully, popularity isn’t the sole (or, really, even remotely important) factor in building a successful basketball team. And that should give the Washington Wizards some hope.
If you’ve lived through #KD2DC, you don’t need a reminder – but for those that are new to the Wizards, welcome.
