WASHINGTON — When CSN Mid-Atlantic and the Wizards decided not to renew local legend Phil Chenier’s contract after this season, the city was outraged.
A member of the last great Washington basketball team, Chenier has been part of the organization for more than 45 years, either in a playing or broadcasting capacity.
But always a gentleman, Chenier hasn’t publicly called out the team, or the station, for their decision. Instead, he’s remained a company man and has used his influence for good. At least, if you’re a Wizards fan.
Here’s his latest contribution to the team, a short pump-up video that played in the Verizon Center during Game 6, which was, of course, a Wizards win.
