Alexander Ovechkin takes in Wizards game, hangs with Gheorghe Muresan (vid/pic)
Washington Capitals superstar Alexander Ovechkin showed some love to his city’s NBA team by taking in the Washington Wizards-Phoenix Suns game on Wednesday night at the Verizon Center.
Since the teams share the same arena and the Capitals enjoying a night off, it probably didn’t require too much effort for Ovechkin to take in the game, but he sure enjoyed himself.
He visited with Wizards and Capitals owner Ted Leonsis.

He enthusiastically chanted “DE-FENSE” along with the fans.
He took a courtside photo with teammate Evgeny Kuznetsov and fiancée Maria Kirilenko.
But best of all, he posed for a photograph with Kuznetsov and former Washington Bullets “great,” “My Giant” himself, Gheorghe Muresan.
Man oh man, what a photo. Between the mugs of Ovi and Muresan, a little Photoshopping to remove the background and Kuznetsov, and that image could be stuck in a museum’s exhibit about prehistoric man and no one would notice. Except for the clothing.
