WASHINGTON (CBSDC) — We all knew this day would come, when the Wizards — even off a galvanizing playoff series victory — would again let D.C. down.

That moment came Thursday night, when instead of using their sole pick on, say, a player, the team forwent its option to begin filling out its thinning roster, by trading the 46th overall pick in the 2014 NBA Draft to the Los Angeles Lakers, for “cash considerations.”

Some fans have taken the news better than others, although many were irate at the sheer notion of the Wizards Twitter account sending out repeated reminders to its fanbase to “tune in to ESPN” for their pick, to then promptly not select a player.

Fans Outraged Over Wizards Vacant 2014 NBA Draft

It wasn’t so bad, really. The Wizards picked early enough in the evening, that if fans were to sacrifice sleep to see the non-existent pick materialize, they only had to wait until approx. 11:35 p.m. Not much sleep lost there.

One fan who hasn’t taken the transaction so well, who happens to have a microphone and a Twitter account, is Danny Rouhier of 106.7 The Fan.

He’s made sure his feelings will be heard, like, for hours.

There’s always room for you to jump into the fray, like these guys.

Try it before you prattle about with the ‘You’re so negative’ stuff. It’s incredibly cathartic.

Grant Paulsen and Danny were lucky to be joined by the Wizards’ 2nd-round draft pick Friday afternoon. You can listen to the audio below.

Of course, as fans will come to realize, Cash is a bit of a low talker.

Here’s the full transcript of Cash’s quotes:
