Q&A with Martell Webster from WashingtonWizards.com
WashingtonWizards.com: How does it feel to join the Washington Wizards?
Webster: I’m ecstatic! This is a wonderful opportunity and I’m glad the Wizards have taken an interest in me and my craft. I’m looking forward to contributing to this team.
WashingtonWizards.com: What are some of the strengths in your game that you are bringing to Washington?
Webster: Perimeter shooting, perimeter defense, and 1-on-1 defense. I didn’t come into this league as a defensive player, but I developed that role. And still being able to spread the floor and letting the point guard penetrate and kick out and being able to knock down that jump shot.
WashingtonWizards.com: What role are you looking to play on this Wizards team next year?
Webster: This will be a new offense for me, the East coast style of ball is more get up and down the floor and run. The style of play is different, but I’ll get adjusted to it and get acclimated. It will be a war in training camp, in a positive way, we’ll be fighting for positions but that’s what this league is all about, there is so much talent it’s all about whoever wants it more and contributing to the greater good of the team. I’m excited.
