PG: Chris Whitney on two sprained ankles. but paradoxically also Hot Rod. Muggsy being Muggsy.
SG: Hibachi. Larry Hughes. Legler
SF: Tuff Juice. “I called game” Pierce. MJ.
PF: Webber. Googs. Big Ben. Sheed melting down about something.
C: Big Gheorghe. Haywood (vs Bron). Manute. JaVale starting in the paint to block a three point shot at the apex of its arc. Also his never-to-be-duplicated dunk contest tricks. As usual the winner that year was... not.

Are the Wiz’lets I’ve most enjoyed watching.


Excellent list. Chris Whitney really does belong up there I’m on the all time best wizards or bullets.

Shout outs to Richard (Rip) Hamilton, Bobby Simmons, and Mitchell Butler as well as Garrett Temple.

All solid dudes.

Here's a nice article on who I think is the most underrated Bullet I watched as a kid - KP: https://ballislife.com/remembering-the-greatest-unknown-passer-in-nba-history-kevin-porter/

Next to Nate Archibald, I think he was the fastest player of his era - and a pure point guard.

Safe to say Abe Pollin’s “son”, Wes Unseld, is the greatest Wizard of all times.

Thanks for posting this, Ruzious!

This part tells just how underrated KP, Kevin Porter, was and still remains:


Not just one of the most unappreciated passers of all-time, he could score too: averaging over 15 points a game in three of his 10 seasons and a double-double in seven. His combination of being able to dish and score really showed a year after his record breaking night in 1978, when he became the first and only player to ever put up 30 points and 25 assists in a game. Since then, only four players — John Stockton, Isiah Thomas, Jason Kidd and Scott Skiles — have put up 20/25 games. Of those, Scott Skiles 22 and 30 in 1990 broke Porter’s NBA record for most assists in a single-game.

Porter was fantastic. It just so happens that two of the best Wizards of all time happen to be PG's better than Porter (Arenas and Wall)

If you could have any Wizard player, but get the best prime year of that player (even if he wasn't a Wizard during his prime), then the team would be incredible:

PG Arenas/M.Price
SG Jordan/Richmond
SF Pierce/B.King
PF Webber/R.Wallace
C Moses Malone/Ben Wallace
