Ernie's moves

In the 2004-2005 season, the Wizards surprised everyone by going from 25 wins to 45 wins with a young exciting team. Since then, we have not been able to match the win total. Using my memory plus a lot of help from basketball-reference, I've compiled most (hopefully all) of Ernie's significant personnel moves. Apologies for the poor formatting. Warning: it is kind of depressing.
