Johnny Damon supports Nationals' decision to visit White House

Johnny Damon supports Nationals' decision to visit White House

Following Nationals GM Mike Rizzo comments on the team's celebratory visit to the White House following their World Series title, former New York Yankees outfielder Johnny Damon supported the team's decision. 

In a TMZ interview, Damon said visiting the White House is a great thing for annual World Series champions, regardless of their political standing. He also said the visit presented a great opportunity for people who don't support the president to voice their opinions. 

"I think it's a great thing and if you do have an issue, that's the greatest time to talk about the issues that you see and try to make things work," he said.

Damon has been vocal in his support for President Trump in TMZ interviews in the past, and complimented the nation's strong economy. 

The Nationals' White House visit drew lots of backlash in the belief that the Nationals and several of their players were making political statements. 

“You’re in a situation where you’re damned if you do and damned if you don’t," Rizzo said to USA Today

Isaiah Thomas wants to make it clear that Marcus Smart flops

Isaiah Thomas wants to make it clear that Marcus Smart flops

When you know, you know.

Washington Wizards starting point guard Isaiah Thomas gave his take on former teammate Marcus Smart's reputation for flopping. Spoilers: he flops.

Thomas, who is returning to Boston on Wednesday for the first time as a starter, was teammates with Smart during his run with the Celtics from 2014-17. He didn't hold back from interrupting reporters to make sure everyone knows that Smart flops. (See the entire sequence play out in the video above.)

Despite being familiar with Smart, don't expect Thomas to know everything about how the Celtics will prepare for the Wizards. Thomas pointed out that only two of his former teammates are still with the team.

His history with Boston means a lot to Thomas, but his only focus on Wednesday will be earning the victory.

"The love is genuine between me and the city," Thomas said. "Hopefully we can just win the game. That's the most important."
