Washington Wizards History
The history of the Washington Wizards begins way back in 1961, when the team was known as the Chicago Packers, and a year later, as the Chicago Zephyrs. In 1963, they moved to Baltimore and became the Bullets, and a decade later they moved again, to Maryland. There, they became the Capital Bullets, then changing their name to the Washington Bullets the following season. They had a good run as the Bullets, but all things must come to an end, and they changed their name yet again in 1997, finally becoming the Washington Wizards. For a time in the early new millennium, famed basketball player Michael Jordan became their president of operations, and ended up playing for the team as well, before retiring.
The Gilbert Arenas era was an exciting time for Washington fans, as the Wizards made four consecutive trips to the playoffs from 2005 through 2008. While Washington enjoyed several successful seasons led by Arenas, the Wizards opted for a change in direction. After drafting guard John Wall from Kentucky as the new face of the franchise in 2010, the Wizards traded Arenas to Atlanta for young guard Jordan Crawford. The Wizards continued to retool their roster by acquiring veteran players like Trevor Ariza and Emeka Okafor. The new and improved Wizards look to improve upon last season, and make some magic happen as they try for a return to the NBA Playoffs.
