The Scouting Report
After snagging the first, sixth, and third overall picks in the past three NBA drafts, the Washington Wizards boast a roster flush with young stars eager to make their presence known in the league. With the season well underway, the team must prove itself against the Chicago Bulls and the New York Knicks—both of whom are currently top-five teams in the Eastern Conference—hoping to pass, shoot, and checkmate their way past the competition.
Although the Washington Wizards have changed monikers four times since their founding—they’ve previously played under the banner of the Packers, Zephyrs, and Bullets, the latter of which took home the 1978 NBA World Championship—the franchise has conjured slam dunks in Washington for more than three decades. Several former players have been named among the league’s 50 greatest, leaving a mark on the NBA as indelible as the fake beard superglued to Merlin’s face. Today, throngs of up to 22,000 fans gather at the Verizon Center to cheer on the team swathed in their iconic red, white, and blue uniforms.
