For several seconds yesterday, the familiar logo of the Washington Bullets was displayed on two television monitors. And just like that the computer-generated logo dissolved, turning into a yellow brick road that led to the MCI Center and the team's new logo -- the Washington Wizards.
Wizards forward Chris Webber, who made a fashionably late arrival in a stretch white limousine, quickly donned a Wizards cap and T-shirt upon his arrival. Earlier in the day, he toured the site of the MCI Center for the first time.
The franchise first used the name Bullets when it moved from Chicago to Baltimore in 1963. The Baltimore Bullets played 10 seasons at the Civic Center (now Baltimore Arena) before moving to Landover for the 1973-74 season.
