The Washington Wizards are on a nice five-game winning streak and just beat the Los Angeles Lakers in overtime Monday night. That is thanks in large part to the duo of Russell Westbrook and Bradley Beal.
But something hilarious happened before the big win in Los Angeles. The Wizards broadcast team was going through the starting lineup and casually glossed over the fact that the picture for Westbrook featured someone entirely different.Wizards broadcast sees Isaiah Thomas in Russell Westbrook
This is a hilarious mistake considering Isaiah Thomas is not even in the NBA right now. This gaffe must mean whoever made the graphic doesn’t watch too much basketball. Thomas is currently playing for Team USA in the FIBA AmeriCup qualifiers.
Westbrook, of course, did not see the mistake in real-time and proceeded to score 32 points and grab 14 rebounds in a huge Wizards win.
The announcers completely moving past the mistake makes this clip even funnier. They must have done a double-take of their own and just didn’t want to throw anyone under the bus.
Thomas did play for the Wizards last season until he was traded in February. He was average, but never did anything to warrant too much praise.
This is not one of those fireable offenses, but rather, a funny mistake that was ultimately harmless. The slight still does remain, and now fans will wait and see if the graphics department goes with the joke at all as the season moves on. The mistake came as the Wizards picked up their best win of the season. Thomas’ picture could be a secret good luck charm.Next: The Whiteboard: Picks for 2021 NBA All-Star reserves

Germany boss Low opens door for Thomas Muller and Mats Hummels to finally return to team after 2019 exile
GERMANY manager Joachim Low has opened the door to Thomas Muller and Mats Hummels returning to the national team.
The pair were discarded after Low's side were embarrassingly dumped out of the 2018 World Cup in the group stage.2Hummels and Muller both won the World Cup with Germany in 2014Credit: Kenny Ramsay - The Sun Glasgow
But now it appears Low, who won the World Cup with Hummels and Muller in his team in 2014, is more receptive to the idea of them coming back into the fold.
Speaking to Kicker, he said: "Special circumstances can justify an interruption in the upheaval.
"That (the future of the trio) will be a difficult and important question, also for me.
"The character of Thomas Muller and Mats Hummels is that they don't oppress others."
Bayern Munich defender Jerome Boateng was another player dropped by Low after the shambolic 2018 tournament.
But the centre-back was not mentioned by the German boss, leaving his international future in doubt still.
Meanwhile, Bayern Munich teenager Jamal Musiala could be set to receive his first call-up to the national side after choosing Germany over England.
