‘Overzealous’ Wizards employee posts on Facebook that team will take John Wall

John Wall

There it was on for all to see: the telling the world they will draft with the No. 1 pick.  Oops. It was just a Wizards employee getting carried away.  Myron Goodman made the posting Friday on a page for University of alumni. It read: “I am a sales rep for the Wizards. will be our choice as the (No. 1) overall pick in the June draft. If you want a great deal on tickets … email me.”  The posting was soon taken down. Wizards spokesman Scott Hall says it was “simply the case of an overzealous member of our sales staff acting on his own.”  The Wizards won the draft lottery this week. Wall, Kentucky’s star guard, is expected to be the top choice.
