Sometimes a change is as good as a holiday.

And sometimes the firing of a terrible NBA exec is as good as winning a title (almost).

That’s certainly how a lot of Wizards are feeling right now, following the firing of team president Ernie Grunfeld.

There are few worse feelings in sports than knowing nothing will ever change until your owner, GM or president does.

After 16 years, Wizards fans finally have their wish.

Now Knicks diehards are hoping more than ever that they too are unshackled from their incompetent overlord.

The only problem is you can’t fire your owner.

Let’s just hope Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos is as serious about buying the Knicks as Charles Oakley says he is.
