FAQs about the Washington Wizards

Here are answers to frequently asked questions about the NBA team located in Washington DC.

They play their home games at the Capital One Arena. In basketball configuration, this arena can accommodate up to 20,170 fans.

The Washington Wizards are owned by Ted Leonsis. Leonsis is founder and CEO of Monumental Sports & Entertainment. This group also owns other pro sports teams such as the Washington Capitals (NHL) and the Washington Mystics (WNBA). He acquired the Wizards in 2010.

The Washington Wizards, formerly known as the Washington Bullets, have played host to a number of basketball stars. And that’s despite the fact that they don’t have the same track record as some of the NBA’s most successful franchises. Here are some of the most legendary players in franchise history.

Wes Unseld

Wes Unseld is arguably the most iconic player in Wizards history. Rookie of the Year and league MVP in his first season, he was an exceptional rebounder and passer for a player of his size. Unseld led the team (then known as the Bullets) to the 1978 NBA title and was voted Finals MVP.

Elvin Hayes

Elvin Hayes, another key member of the 1978 championship team, was a strong scorer and rebounder. He was selected to the All-Star Game twelve times during his career, including nine times as a member of the Bullets.

Gilbert Arenas

Gilbert Arenas, nicknamed “Agent Zero”, was one of the NBA’s most gifted players during his time with the Washington Wizards. A three-time All-Star, he was known for his high-flying offensive performances and decisive late-game shooting.

John Wall

John Wall was the face of the franchise for nearly a decade. A five-time All-Star Game selection, he was one of the fastest and most athletic point guards in the league.

Earl Monroe

Before moving to the Knicks, Monroe was a key player for the Washington Bullets, where he earned the nickname “Earl the Pearl”. He was known for his fluid movements and creative playing style.

Rod Strickland

Strickland spent many of his best seasons in a Washington jersey. At the time, he was one of the best playmakers in the league. Rod Strickland was the NBA’s leading passer in the 1997-1998 season.

Gheorghe Muresan

Muresan is probably better known for his immense size (2m31) than for his game. However, this pivot was an effective player for the Bullets in the mid-90s. He even won the Most Improved Player trophy in 1996.

Michael Jordan

Although most of Jordan’s career was spent in Chicago, “His Majesty” played two seasons with the Wizards. His time in Washington was clearly not as memorable as his glorious years with the Bulls. On the other hand, the presence of the NBA’s biggest star had an undeniable impact on the franchise.
