    Wizards Want $600 Million In Public Funding To Renovate Capital One Arena

    The Wizards are looking to make major renovations to their arena and want public funding to pay for the majority of the bill.

    Monumental Sports & Entertainment, which owns the Wizards as well as the NHLís Capitals and WNBAís Mystics, has asked D.C. for $600MM of public funding to renovate Capital One Arena, Sam Fortier of The Washington Post reports. Thatís about 75% of the funds needed to carry out Monumentalís renovation plan. The remaining $200MM would be covered by Monumental, which is owned by chief executive Ted Leonsis.

    Give it to them. At lease they'll have something to show for their investment. How much have they pissed away on homeless and illegals without a shred of improvement?
