A list of the best Washington Wizards of all time. Originally the Chicago Packers, the NBA's first expansion team, the Bullets moved to Baltimore before the 1963 season. After a few lean years in Baltimore, the Bullets started to have some success, drafting some of the best players in team history. These teams were constant contenders and featured Hall of Fame players like Wes Unseld, the only player to win the MVP award as a Bullet, Walt Bellamy and Earl "The Pearl" Monroe. From the late 1960s through late 1970s were a decade of dominance for the Bullets. They were a consistent playoff threat and won a NBA title behind some of the best players in team history in 1978. Overall, the Bullets made the Finals four times in the 1970s 

In 1997, the team changed its name from the Bullets to the Wizards. While the Wizards haven't had too much success in recent years, the team has had its fair share of great players on its roster. Even the greatest player of all time, Michael Jordan, playing his final days in Washington, the team had trouble mustering a playoff threat.

At one point, superstar guard GIlbert Arenas was one of the best players in the league. Arenas was one of the most prolific scorers in the league and along with Antawn Jamison and Caron Butler, made the team a perennial playoff team in the mid 2000s. This trio is considered one of the best Wizards history.

Today, the Wizards hopes are pinned to star point guard John Wall, the number one overall pick in the 2010 draft. Wall is one of the most exciting players in the league and has the potential to be one of the best in the NBA.
