The Washington Wizards are an American professional basketball team based in Washington, D.C. that plays in the National Basketball Association (NBA) as a member of the Southeast Division of the Eastern Conference. The team was founded in 1961 as the Chicago Packers and relocated to Baltimore, Maryland in 1963, where they became the Bullets. In 1973, they played a season as the Capital Bullets, and in 1974 they became the Washington Bullets, a name they kept until 1995, when owner Abe Pollin renamed the team the Washington Wizards because of the violent overtones of the word bullet. The Wizards have made four trips to the NBA finals in the 1970s and won an NBA championship in the 1977–78 season. The team plays its home games at the Capital One Arena, in the Chinatown neighborhood of Washington, D.C. an arena they share with the Washington Capitals of the National Hockey League (NHL) and the Georgetown University men's basketball team. The Wizards have a vision to build an organization that develops and invests in player development to turn the franchise into a perennial contender.
