The following year, the franchise settled in the nation's capitol under the name, the Washington Bullets.Similar to any NBA team that has been around the block, the Wizards have rode a tidal wave of ups and downs. The team boasted the most success during the mid to late-1970s, earning multiple conference titles and an NBA Championship in 1978. Bullets fans were certainly motivated through the 1980s until the team suffered multiple injuries at the beginning of the 1989 season, leading them to a 16-game losing streak. Under the orders of then-owner, Abe Pollin, the team went through yet another name change, this time to its current name, the Washington Wizards, after Pollin started to feel uncomfortable about the violent connotation of the name Bullets.Not only did the name change in the late 1990s, but the team also saw a new star president. Michael Jordan took over as the president of the team in January 2000 before ditching this role and becoming a player for the 2001-02 season. Other notable players who helped build the team include Wes Unseld, Earl Monroe, Moses Malone and Chris Webber.
