How the loss of Paul Pierce affects the Washington Wizards

In a slightly lesser version of the “I’m Coming Home” campaign, Paul Pierce decided to return to his hometown of Inglewood, California and join the Los Angeles Clippers.

Rough Opening Weekend For Wizards

I get it, wins and losses mean absolutely nothing in the NBA Summer League…. but they do keep score and the Wizards opened up this weekend with losses to the Phoenix Suns and a minor league all-star team.
