Brandan Wright Climbs The Ladder On KEvin Seraphin

Brandan Wright

We’re not sure Wizards forward Kevin Seraphin knew what was coming when he elected to get in front of Mavericks center Brandan Wright after he rolled to the hoop last night. J.J. Barea had used the Wright screen to get into the lane, but then he lobbed a pass to the 6-10 Wright and it was Chutes and Ladders time, with an emphasis on the latter (get it?). Read More »
