Antawn Jamison Vents


Posted by Kevin Arnovitz

The Clippers' victory over Dallas on Sunday leaves Washington as the only winless club in the Association.  As Michael Lee reports in today's Washington Post, Antawn Jamison found no consolation in the reminder that the Wizards opened up last season 0-5, yet still managed to earn a playoff berth: 

"...I'm sick of seeing this."

The constant repetition is becoming a tired act for Jamison, who said he was frustrated with the team's lack of desperation against the Magic.

"The makeup of the locker room, the environment of the locker room needs to change," Jamison said. "I'm not saying that it's almost like acceptable, but guys are not upset. Guys are not hurting. This is your job. It's all about representing what's on your chest and doing it the right way. When you don't do your job and don't represent the right way, it should hurt."

...Jamison said as one of the leaders of the team, he'll have to deliver the wake-up call if his teammates haven't gotten it yet. "I always find a way to get it done. It's going to happen," Jamison said. "I'm confident we can get it going, but I don't want to wait 10, 15 games into the season to get it going and you're putting too much pressure to win every game placed in front of you. The sense of urgency is here."
