ESPN Forgets

ESPN’s feature of NBA players at Great Wall of China forgot Washington Bullets’ trip in 1979

October 17, 2013

I had to mention that ESPN’s piece on NBA players visiting the Great Wall of China failed to mention that the Washington Bullets were the first team to do so back in 1979, which was very significant at the time. If any other NBA team had been there, ESPN would have mentioned it. It’s a shame that they have forgotten the Washington Bullets.

Never been busier in my life but I felt I had to post this.

This was the Bullets second trip to a foreign country to play basketball. One year earlier, after winning the NBA Championship, the Bullets traveled to Israel. These trips appear in the book, The Bullets, The Wizards and Washington, DC Basketball.
