We are #1

First, Ted earned the right to purchase the Wizards and rebuild another franchise.

Now he and the organization have the 1st pick in the upcoming NBA draft.

For at least tonight, we are #1!

Congratulations Ted.








Leonsis said:

"We have a lot of work to do with the franchise...The players, the culture, the expectations, the discipline around the team, but I do think it is a breath of fresh air and does revive the franchise and gives us a shot to be an exciting team with a lot of expectations. I know how hard it is to rebuild a team. I am going to be patient but I have a strong belief that our management team and ownership team is very focused. We are going to work hard and listen to everybody. I promise we will build a team that everyone can be proud of."


The Wizards were also represented by Irene Pollin, who wore the 1978 Bullets championship ring of her late husband, longtime owner Abe Pollin. When the Wizards pulled off the surprising win, Irene Pollin's jaw dropped and appeared to mouth 'Oh my God!!' with wide eyes.

"My husband wanted another (championship) so badly," she said. "He really did. So maybe this will be the beginning of another one."
