With the franchise now known as the Washington Wizards, and at one point known as the Chicago Packers, Zephyrs, or Baltimore, Capitol and Washington Bullets, I thought it might be fun to create a word cloud that showed the names of anyone who’s ever worn the teams’ jerseys with their names sized relative to the time with which which they were on the team.
And while guys like Unseld, Gus Johnson and Hayes are not surprising, who knew Brendan Haywood was such a long-running member of the squad? Or that Bernanrd King wasn’t? It felt like he was a Bullet twice as long as he was a Knick. Then again, I was an infant in that era.
