Wizards District Gaming –– the Washington Wizards’ NBA 2K League affiliate –– advanced to the league’s finals for the first time in history and will take on Warriors Gaming Squad on Friday in hopes of bringing home the title and $420,000 prize.

John Wall continued the trend and shared WDG’s post saying, “Yessir!! Congrats”
Then, D.C. United and the Capitals’ dog Captain both shared posts of their own as well.
