The Wizards Probably Won't Change Their Name After All. Boooooo

When Ted Leonsis bought the Wizards there was a lot of excitement, and much of it centered around potential uniform changes and re-naming the team the Bullets. For a while there it seemed like it had a really good chance of happening. The jersey changes are still a possibility, but now it seems like we're stuck with the name.

Ted Leonsis conceded that the team would remain the Wizards during a radio appearance on the Elliot in the morning show on DC101, according to Dan Steinberg.

"I mean, it's a big effort, and it honestly takes no less than 25 months, and it's millions and millions and millions of dollars.

"And so I have so much to do, and there's so much work immediately in front of us, and there are so many investments that we need to make, I've honestly decided to just punt on the decision."

NOOOO! Don't Punt! Go for the first down! The first down being a name change, preferably back to the Bullets, in this metaphor. Looks like the team will remain the Wizards for the foreseeable future. Que the disappointment.
