John Wall, Marcin Gortat reportedly met to discuss tweet
John Wall and teammate Marcin Gortat met last week to discuss the friction between the two, according to a report.
ESPN’s Chris Haynes reported on Tuesday night that Wall and Gortat had a brief meeting to clear the air. He says both players wanted to meet and that their meeting was brief.
Wall became upset with Gortat for seemingly taking a jab at him over Twitter following a win over Toronto two weeks ago. Gortat tweeted about a great “team” victory, with team in quotes.
Unbelievable win tonight ! Great "team" victory!

Some thought that Gortat was implying the Washington Wizards are more of a team and move the ball better without Wall, who has been out since late January with a knee injury.
Wall didn’t appreciate that and responded to the tweet with sarcasm. He later conducted some TV interviews to express his feelings on the matter.
Haynes says that there is still work that needs to be done on the relationship between the teammates.
