Today's Washington Wizards franchise is one of several in the NBA that has a rather nomadic past. The team stands out as the first expansion team to be founded in the NBA, and it was originally awarded to Chicago where the team would play as the Chicago Packers for a single season. Later, the team became the Chicago Zephyrs and remained in the Windy City until 1963. A move to Baltimore that year saw the franchise become the Baltimore Bullets, while a move the very next season placed the team in Washington, D.C., and maintained the Bullets name. Two decades later, the team was renamed the Washington Wizards due to the then-violent connotation of "Bullets."
Despite various moves around the country during the 1970s, that decade was easily the most successful for the team. Between 1971 and 1979, the Wizards brought home 6 division titles, four conference titles, and a single NBA Finals win. Roughly two decades later, to combat what had turned into 20 years of losing seasons and post-season near-misses, the team became the second home of the Bulls' Michael Jordan. Jordan's time with the team yielded no further success, and today the Wizards continue to aspire to their first post-season victory in a quarter-century.
