Randy Wittman Rumors

The dustups date to last season. In the teams’ third meeting, in mid-January 2016, Jae Crowder — perhaps the central protagonist in this entire drama — got tagged with a technical foul in the final minute of Boston’s 119-117 win in Washington. Crowder could be seen barking at the Wizards’ bench and pointing at then-coach Randy Wittman. After the game, Crowder suggested Wittman cursed at him and called him soft. “[Wittman] was saying something about me being soft, and bleep, bleep, bleep,” Crowder said. “I feel like he was getting away with a lot of curse words and inappropriate words to me, and I retaliated and I got hit [with the technical].” Wittman later admitted he yelled at Crowder but denied using profanity. There was no obvious escalation when the teams met again two weeks later — a lopsided Boston win — and Wittman was fired after the season.
