“It was the most terrible team that I’ve probably been on, but it was probably the most fun I’ve ever had in the NBA,” Booker said. “Because those guys didn’t care at all, you know? 

“I would come into the locker room the day of a game and watch one player cut up the suit of another player. One guy took a s— in another guy’s shoe. Oh my goodness, I have stories for days. We would go on the road and we would break into each other’s room and beat a player up, tie him up. There’s so many stories I got from those Washington days. It was so much fun, but looking back on it, oh my goodness. It was so unprofessional.” 

The Wizards were not very good when Booker was in Washington. During his first two seasons, under coach Flip Saunders, they won just 43 total games. Things didn’t improve drastically when Randy Whittman took over in 2012, though the team did post a winning record and reached the playoffs during Booker’s final year there.

Though he enjoyed his start, the South Carolina native said he’s just happy to have survived looking back on it now. 

“I’m just glad I got out alive,” Booker said.
