Experience the magic with Washington Wizards tickets. Founded in 1961, they started their National Basketball Association (NBA) career as the Chicago Packers. They were the first expansion team in the modern era. That first season they posted the league’s worst record at 18-62. The following year, after massive public backlash, they changed their name to be the Chicago Zephyrs. In 1963, they moved and became the Baltimore Bullets. They stayed until 1973 when they moved to Washington D.C. The Washington Bullets remained until 1997 when they moved to the MCI Center, now the Capital One Arena, and changed their name to the Washington Wizards. The name was selected from a public contest.

The Wizards were incredibly successful during the 1970s, earning six division titles. They earned four conference titles starting in 1971 with their last coming in 1979. The Wizards defeated the Seattle SuperSonics — now the Oklahoma City Thunder — in the 1978 NBA Finals to be crowned the national champions. However, due to injuries, the Wizards would fail to qualify for the NBA Playoffs for the next 13 years; 1988 was the next time they earned a postseason bid. They acquired Michael Jordan in 2001 after he came out of retirement but failed to post a .500 season. The Wizards would return to the playoffs in 2004 but would not win another division title until 2017. They see tough competition from the Southeast Division of the Eastern Conference.
