Wizards owner Ted Leonsis knows fans eager for return to playoffs

Ted Leonsis knows Wizards fans want to see the team get back to the playoffs.

"I think the fan base's expectation is we're going to have a better team," Leonsis said on Friday at the Verizon Center.

"I think everyone looks at our team and other teams in the East and says we should be able to, if we play to our capabilities, be one of the teams that qualify for the playoffs.

"So the fans are setting that expectation — and I'm tired of losing."

Washington finished 29-53 last season.
