Wizards unveil “Baltimore Pride” alternate uniforms for this season
For 10 seasons from 1964 to 1973, the team currently known as the Washington Wizards was the Baltimore Bullets.
The current team is going to honor that heritage and teams — which featured stars such as Walt Bellamy, Earl “the Pearl” Monroe, and Wes Unseld — by wearing a “Baltimore Pride” alternate uniform for six games this season.
This is not exactly what the old Bullets wore, in part because the colors needed to be updated to the current Wizards’ red, blue and white. The shorts back then were not this long, either (thank Buddha that style changed).
The reaction on Twitter was basically how you expect Twitter to react to anything, we’ll see if people come around over time. Myself, I don’t mind it, then again I tend to like soccer kits.
