The Wizards will continue to honor their first appearance in The Finals by wearing the home orange uniforms of the 1970-71 Baltimore Bullets against the Golden State Warriors on March 4. The Wizards have been wearing the uniforms occasionally this season, taking part in NBA Hardwood Classics Nights.

After getting its start in Chicago, the team would move to Washington, draft players who would go on to become NBA Legends, and make four appearances in the NBA Finals during the 1970's -- including an NBA Championship in 1978 by defeating the Seattle SuperSonics.

Here we take a look back at some of the uniforms the team has worn in its history.

So Long, Chicago
The first three years of the franchise were marked by two nickname changes and a moving van. After starting play in Chicago as the Packers in 1961-62, then as the Zephyrs in 1962-63, the club moved to Baltimore and became the Bullets. Abe Pollin took ownership of the team in '64 and Earl "The Pearl" Monroe was selected with the No. 2 pick overall in the 1967 NBA Draft.

Wes = W's
The Bullets suited the No. 2 pick of the 1968 NBA Draft, Wes Unseld, up in the white and orange for the club's first winning season. A stretch at 6-7, his official listing, Unseld helped lead the Bullets to a 57-25 finish, good for first place in the Eastern Division.

With A Capital ...
Well, actually a lowercase "b" graced the team's jerseys when it moved to Landover, Md. in 1973 and became the Capital Bullets for one season before being renamed the Washington Bullets. Unseld and the Bullets switched uniforms to red, white and blue, with large horizonal bars across the chest and stars down the legs of the shorts.

Subtle Changes
The Bullets would slightly alter their jerseys in the mid-1980's, breaking up the horizontal bars and adding the team's nickname to the leg of the shorts. Moses Malone donned this uniform when he joined the squad in 1986 for the first of his two seasons.

A Cleaner Look
The team opted for a much cleaner looking uniform in the late 80's, wearing white at home and red on the road -- both uniforms featuring blue lettering. In his final two years in Washington, Chris Webber teamed up with former Michigan teammate Juwan Howard for the Bullets' last two seasons above .500 (1996-97 and 1997-98).

What's In A Name?
The Bullets became the Wizards in 1997 as Pollin no longer wanted his team associated with any violent connotations. In addition to the new name, logos and colors, the team established a conflict resolution program in the Washington and Baltimore metro areas. Two years later, UConn's Richard Hamilton would sport the team's new look.

Going, Going, Gone
The Wizards have gone retro on a number of occasions already this season. Gilbert Arenas and Co. have been wearing the orange threads in games at times and Arenas wore shoes to match the uniform during the PlayStation Skills Challenge at NBA All-Star 2005 in Denver.
