Before the team was named the Washington Wizards, they were known as the Bullets and nothing captured that Bullet spirit than the 1978 championship team.
Led by center Wes Unseld, the Bullets faced the Seattle Super Sonics in a thrilling game 7 in Seattle. Players such as Unseld, Dennis Johnson, Paul Silas, Bob Danridge, Elvin Hyes, Jack Sikma, Freddie Brown, and many more future legendary players on both sides put on a show for the fans and left one of the greatest NBA Finals series in NBA history.
So on this Wizards day, we honor the team's roots and remember when the Bullets brought glory to Washington as they captured their first NBA crown.
