Founded in 1961 as the Chicago Packers, the franchise relocated to Baltimore, Maryland in 1963 and became the Bullets. In 1974, after moving to Landover, Maryland, they became the Washington Bullets, a name they kept until 1995, when owner Abe Pollin renamed the team the Washington Wizards.
The franchise reached the NBA playoffs for the first time during the 1964–1965 season, but it was not until the 1970s that future Hall of Famers such as Earl Monroe, Gus Johnson, Wes Unseld, and Elvin Hayes made the team yearly contenders for the NBA Championship. The Bullets finished at the top of their division 6 times in that decade and qualified for the playoffs each year, finally winning their only NBA Championship in 1978.
The Bullets teams of the following decades were less successful, though they routinely made the playoffs through the mid-1980s. From the 1988–1989 season to the 2003–2004 season, however, Washington qualified for the post-season only once.
In 2000, retired NBA superstar Michael Jordan became minority owner and the president of the Washington Wizards. He came out of retirement to play for the Wizards the following year, but Washington Wizards Ticket Holders were underwhelmed by his relatively ineffective performance. Jordan and retired permanently in 2003 and Pollin removed him as team president soon thereafter. The Wizards briefly returned to the post-season in the mid-decade, but their success was short lived.
In 2017, Washington Wizards Ticket Holders watched young point guard John Wall lead the Wizards to the team’s first division title in 38 years, and their season ended with a hard-fought 7-game series loss in the conference semifinals.
Jazz fans attend all home games at Capital One Arena, hoping to see the team capitalize on recent successes. Utah Jazz tickets are always available at Golden Tickets.
