Jahidi[edit]

Check out www.wizznutzz.com, which is a pretty popular Wizards blog that talks about Jahidi all the time. I think they make him a notable player.

As for Juan Dixon, I think he gets on this list for the same reason as Jordan. Neither were all that important as Wizards, but Juan will remain a legend in the DC area for Maryland's NCAA championship and so I think is worth listing as a notable player. Also, Juan had a huge game in Game 4 of the Wizards-Bulls series, which is notable since it was the first playoff series the Wizards won in 20 years. I'll certainly never forget it.

Can we forget about Jahidi White?[edit]

Why is Jahidi White in the "Not to be forgotten" section? He really isn't that good. Reference the following stats: [1]

I would also like to nominate Juan Dixon as well. Today he is remembered but will people remember him being on the team ten years from now?OsFan 21:53, 16 February 2006 (UTC)

michael jordan[edit]

Barely even a mention of Michael Jordan on this page?

He's mentioned on hall of famers that were on the team. That is the appropriate note. The rest is on goes on his page, not the team's page. --Robert Wm "Ruedii" (talk) 04:56, 7 May 2013 (UTC)
Correction: it seems there is a whole section on his years with the team as well. It falls just short of WP:UNDUE, however considering the amount of press it had at the time, I wouldn't put it off as unimportant. --Robert Wm "Ruedii" (talk) 04:59, 7 May 2013 (UTC)

1st championship in 36 years?[edit]

I take exception to this statement: "to bring a professional sports championship to Washington D.C. for the first time in 36 years." Thats only true if you don't count the three Negro League World Series won by the Homestead Grays in 1943, 1944, & 1948. I suppose one could argue that the Grays played most of the home games in Pa., so they're not really a Washington, D.C. team, but the Bullets played all of their home games in Landover in 1977-78. --D.

Fair use rationale for File:BaltimoreBullets.gif[edit]

[edit]

Thats not the new logo, what happened to the DC one? —Preceding unsigned comment added by 112.118.136.252 (talk) 10:16, 11 May 2011 (UTC)

I agree. It seems the "dc" logo is the team's new primary, not the new version if the wizard and moon one. This needs to be changed. oknazevad (talk) 15:28, 12 May 2011 (UTC)
The Wizards web site makes it clear that the "dc" logo is a secondary logo:
With the color shift, the team introduced two new secondary logos. One of the new marks is a lowercase “dc,”... -- Wizards Unveil New Logos and Uniforms
-- Pemilligan (talk) 01:51, 13 May 2011 (UTC)
Ah, well, the team's website makes that just a little unclear, what with the "dc" logo being all over the place, while the wizard and moon is barely present. Good find. oknazevad (talk) 02:59, 13 May 2011 (UTC)

Citing the Jordan years[edit]

So I've been reading over the Jordan years and wanted to offer a suggestion. I suggest that some of the statistics be cited to verify the information. What do you guys think? --Dcdarb (talk) 02:39, 29 June 2011 (UTC)

Floyd Wang[edit]

Since when is some guy named Floyd Wang on the roster? — Preceding unsigned comment added by 108.28.31.230 (talk) 01:27, 24 October 2011 (UTC)

Infobox[edit]

Shouldn't the infobox tell what sport and league it is? Soerfm (talk) 16:17, 15 November 2011 (UTC)

[edit]

According to the article, "In 1963 the franchise moved to Baltimore, Maryland, and became the Baltimore Bullets (no relation to the 1940s–50s Baltimore Bullets BAA/NBA franchise)," yet they both seemingly share the same logo: My guess is that it's the old logo of the Wizards (formerly the Bullets) and not associated with the other short lived team from 1944-1954. Anyone know for sure? If they actually do share the same logo, then one of these images can be deleted. Jauerbackdude?/dude. 02:11, 17 April 2012 (UTC)

Baltimore-Washington Bullets[edit]

I saw the Bullets play at Cole Field House In the early 1970's as "The Baltimore-Washington Bullets." This was a short lived moniker, as they were being transferred from Baltimore to D.C., where they would play in the newly built Capital Centre as the Washington Bullets. I won't add this to the article, but old Washington Post and Baltimore Sun sports articles will confirm this. — Preceding unsigned comment added by JamesMadison (talkcontribs) 08:29, 20 May 2012 (UTC)

Rebound Records[edit]

Hayes has defensive and offensive record, yet Unseld has total record, that is more than the sum of Hayes's records. Unseld has to have at least one of them (Unless no distinction was made between offensive and defensive rebounds)

Chicago Packers[edit]

A link at Oscar Robertson to the Chicago Packers leads to this page, with a note at the top, 'redirected from Chicago Packers.' How-ever, there is no mention of a team by this name in this article. What's the deal?Kdammers (talk) 08:21, 29 November 2012 (UTC)

Oh, now I see: Packers and Zephyrs are previous names, mentioned in the box on the right. The search function did not show that. Kdammers (talk) 08:24, 29 November 2012 (UTC)

Pretty Depressing[edit]

Some of the article seems kind of depressing, and is worded, just, in kind of a depressing tone. But I guess that is unavoidable.Zdawg1029 (talk) 01:03, 12 October 2013 (UTC)
