Noted Redskins fan Kristaps Porzingis meets QB Dwayne Haskins at Wizards vs. Mavericks

Noted Redskins fan Kristaps Porzingis meets QB Dwayne Haskins at Wizards vs. Mavericks

We still don't know exactly why Kristaps Porzingis is a Redskins fan, but we got confirmation that it's a real thing Friday night before the Wizards took on the Mavericks. 

Porzingis, who plays basketball in Dallas and is originally from Latvia, found Redskins quarterback Dwayne Haskins in the crowd and took a picture with him before the game. 

Evidence of Porzingis' Redskins fandom first arose in a video with Mavs teammate Jalen Brunson. The 7-footer could be seen wearing a Redskins shirt, which is weird considering he plays in the same city the Cowboys do. Oh, and he was drafted by the Knicks too, in the city the Giants represent. 

It makes absolutely no sense as to why Porzingis is a Redskins fan. It's not like they've been overly successful and he's jumped on the bandwagon. Being a Redskins fan isn't easy. 

One thing is for certain, though. Somebody needs to figure this out because DC fans can't simply embrace a Dallas athlete without extreme vetting.

Redskins QB Dwyane Haskins bangs gavel before Wizards vs. Hawks

Redskins QB Dwyane Haskins bangs gavel before Wizards vs. Hawks

Dwayne Haskins' rookie season is over, so he took some time to check out the Wizards play Trae Young and the Hawks Friday. 

From what I understand, he is permitted to take as many selfies as he wants at Capital One Arena. 

The Wizards got Davis Bertans back from a quad injury that kept him out for nine games, but they were still plenty shorthanded.

They probably could have used Haskins to play distributor a bit, but we were told that was off the table. 

The team's tradition before home games now is to have someone slam the honorary gavel. Haskins had the responsibility Friday night and gave it a good swing to get things underway. 

Under Ron Rivera, the Redskins hope to rebuild their culture and create a consistent winner for the first time in what feels like an eternity.

The Wizards are also trying to get back into the playoff picture in a rebuild around Bradley Beal and John Wall. I'd say they have the culture part down, developing enough talent is the next and maybe most difficult step.
