Washington Wizards history
The Wizards came into existence in 1961 as the Chicago Packers. A name change to the Zephyrs came the following year, and then it was off to Baltimore to become the Bullets in 1963. The club moved to DC in 1973 and became the Capital Bullets before yet another name change the following campaign.

The team acquired the services of a past-his-prime Michael Jordan from 2001-03. That was followed by Gilbert Arenas serving as the interesting star of the franchise.
