To see the fresh look of shock on Caron Butlerâ€™s face as if a close relative just died. To see Antawn Jamison having a moment where it wasnâ€™t known if a tear was going to flow down his cheek or not (he held on). To see Phil Chenier up close talking about Mr. Pollin with a smile on his face. To see the faces of the emotionally stricken employees of the Washington Sports & Entertainment empire. And to be there as Wes Unseld said the words which moved me the most, two feet away and almost encapsulated by the media scrum, sweat beading on his brow from the camera lights, but looking as comfortable in his gray adidas jump suit as a grandpa telling stories to whomever would listen while sipping ice tea on a broken-in porch on a hot summer day.
Please take a moment and read Kyle’s article on Abe and what he meant to the Wizards, person by person. A great read.
