Booking Washington Wizards Player Appearances
The basketball franchise the Washington Wizards have had an illustrious past moving several times and experiencing several name changes since they joined the NBA in 1961. They eventually landed in Washington, D.C. playing home games at Verizon Center, and are members of the Southeast Division in the Eastern Conference.
The team was initially the Chicago Packers, followed by a move to Baltimore where they were known as the Bullets. This team produced the first two stars and future hall of famers Wes Unseld and Earl “The Pearl” Monroe. These two players took the Bullets to the NBA finals four times in one decade.
In 1987, the Baltimore Bullets moved to Washington D.C. to become the Washington Bullets where their star power continued with Moses Malone and Manute Bol joining the team. In 1995, the team’s owner decided to change their name with the high crime rates involving guns, and they became the Wizards. While the team took a steady decline at this time, there was one bright star that shone after his glory days for the Chicago Bulls. Michael Jordan was originally hired as the president of basketball operations but then ended his retirement by playing for the team for two years.
