Trevor Booker throws NSFW shade on Wizards stint, glad he ‘got out alive’

Trevor Booker, Wizards

Suffice it to say, Trevor Booker has interesting memories of the Washington Wizards.

The Wizards drafted Booker out of Clemson with the No. 23 overall pick in 2010, but Booker would suffer through four frustrating seasons of pranks and tomfoolery in the nation’s capital before signing with the Utah Jazz in 2014.

Booker spoke with Alex Kennedy of HoopsHype to explain the utter dysfunction in Washington and the nonsensical approach that players had in the locker room. However, he did call it the “most fun I’ve ever had in the NBA.”

Having now played for four different teams since moving on from the Wizards, Booker understands that his experiences in Washington were more of the exception to the rule rather than the standard norm.

“That was all I knew. It was my first NBA team. So I’m like, ‘Wow, the NBA is really a s–tshow,'” Booker said. … “Then when I went to other organizations and I realized that, you know, what I had in Washington, it was just, it was not normal at all.”

“I’m just glad I got out alive.”

Booker went unsigned prior to the 2018-19 season and only played a few games in the Chinese Basketball Association before succumbing to injuries.

Meanwhile, the Wizards are currently in the “dumps,” so to speak. Although they inked Bradley Beal to an extension, John Wall could miss the entire season as he rehabs from a torn Achilles.
