Washington Wizards Tickets
Today’s Washington Wizards began as the Chicago Packers of yesteryear. The Packers were established in 1961 and enjoyed 10 seasons in Baltimore before relocating to the Washington-Maryland area as the Capital Bullets during the 1973 season. The following year, they changed their name to the Washington Bullets. Consistently wreaking havoc during the 1970s, they had an unbelievable run with their two stars, Wes Unseld and Elvin Hayes. With this duo, they earned their way to the NBA Finals four times and eventually won the NBA championship during the 1977–78 season by beating the Seattle Supersonics. Due to the increasing violence in the Washington area, the franchise changed its name on May 15, 1978, to the Washington Wizards. Since then, the Wizards have been trying to recapture the excitement of that one title year and are well on their way in doing so.
