Washington DC has a fascinating NBA story that begins in 1961 as one of the first expansion teams, the Chicago Packers. They moved to Baltimore a few years later and were renamed as the Bullets. They moved again in 1973, this time to Washington DC, where they eventually became the Washington Bullets. The Bullets won their only championship just five years later.
After limited success throughout the 1990s, the team name changed to the Wizards, and the great Michael Jordan took over as President of Basketball Operations, later part-owner, and ultimately came back from a second retirement to play for the team.
