The Washington Wizards seem to have found their permanent home in Washington D.C., but this franchise has spent decades moving across the US. The Wizards actually began as the first NBA franchise in Chicago, known as the Chicago Packers. After launching in 1961, the team changed its name a year later to the Chicago Zephyrs.
Only a year later, there was more change for the team as it moved to Baltimore in 1963. The team once again changed its name to the Baltimore Bullets, which took the moniker from an NBA franchise based in the city in the 1940s and 50s.
While playing in Baltimore, the team drafted two future Hall of Famers, Wes Unseld and Earl Monroe. Unseld and Monroe helped the team win the 1971 conference final, but the Bullets lost the NBA Finals to the Kareem Abdul Jamaar-inspired Milwaukee Bucks.
The early 70s was a period of big change for the Bullets franchise, as Monroe was traded to the New York Knicks, and the team moved 30 miles from Baltimore to Washington D.C., in 1973. At first, the franchise took the Capital Bullets name but changed it to the Washington Bullets just a year later, in 1974.
While this turnover period could have taken some momentum from the franchise, the team thrived. Unseld continued to dominate for the team, and the franchise added future Hall of Famer Elvin Hayes to the roster. This was a recipe for success, which brought a conference final victory in 1975.
The team went one better in 1978 after finishing the season with a pretty average 44-38. However, the franchise upset the odds and beat the Seattle SuperSonics in the NBA Finals, with Unseld winning the MVP award. The team made it back to the NBA Finals a year later, losing to their rivals, the SuperSonics.
At the time, Bullets fans didn’t realize this was as good as it would get for the NBA team. The franchise has never won a conference final since and struggled in the playoffs after 1979. The team won seven division titles from 1969 to 1979 but wouldn’t claim another division title until 2017.
By the 1990s, not only was the team’s success in the spotlight, but the franchise’s role in the community. Homicides and gun crime in Washington D.C. was escalating, and the Bullets’ name started to look out of touch.
In November 1995, owner Abe Pollin confirmed he would rename the franchise to the Washington Wizards. That new name came into effect for the 1997/98 season, and the Wizards could look forward to a new future with a clean slate. That future would include Michael Jordan, who joined the team out of retirement in 1999.
Jordan, an all-time great of basketball, could still put up great numbers even at 38 years old. However, he was not the all-conquering force that led the Chicago Bulls during their 1990s heyday. In his three seasons with the Wizards, Jordan could not drive the team into the playoffs. And that has largely been the story of the franchise since.
Occasional successful seasons aside, the Wizards have only made the playoffs nine times since 2002. There is hope for this team, which still has talented players like three-time All-Star Bradley Beal. However, fans of the Wizards can’t help but wish the glory days of the 70s would come back.
