old Washington Bullets trucker hatWhy Abe Pollin went from Bullets to Wizards – DC Sports Bog, The Post
Dan Steinberg goes into the archives and puts together a timeline of the Washington Bullets changing their name to Wizards.

As I have said before, if Ted Leonsis does acquire the team, the name “Wizards” stays because Leonsis has so much respect for Pollin. The colors will change back to red, white and blue, but perhaps not until the team is ready to be good again.

For the record, Dragons would have been a good name since they play in Chinatown, but what is done is done.
