Washington Wizards' Martell Webster Still Believes In His Team

His team is a dismal 3-22 but Washington Wizards forward Martell Webster said he still “loves”  this squad.

One wonders how much more he’d like the Wizards if they were 22-3.

But even with his team spinning into no man’s land, following two weekend losses to the Detroit Pistons, and having a chance too be known as one of worst teams in NB A history, Webster is staying as upbeat as he possible can.

“It’s easy for everybody to have faith when everything’s going your way, when adversity shows that’s when you have to have faith,” he said. “That’s what faith is. And I’ll continue to have that, that will never run out. Especially with this team, ever.

“We’re young and scrappy. We enjoy each other. That’s what it is. That’s hard to come by especially when you’re losing. And we still have it. That’s why I love this team.”

Webster is certainly doing his part to help the Wizards get some wins in his seventh NBA season. He’s been splitting his time between guard and forward and is averaging around nine points and four rebounds a game.

“We’ve got some work to do,” Webster said. “I don’t have any doubt in my team at all. I really love this team, I really do. I love the guys that we have. I love the coaching staff. I love the atmosphere. We work hard and we don’t have the wins to show for it, plain and simple. And it’s one of those things where it’s easy to be like, ‘This is it. I’m just gonna give in.’ But we can’t. We don’t know how to, that’s not in our DNA.”
