As you’ve probably heard by now, White Sox pitcher Chris Sale was sent home from a game and later suspended after cutting up his team’s throwback jerseys because he felt they were uncomfortable and would affect his performance.
This got us thinking: The Wizards have gone through plenty of uniforms through the years, and just about all of them are attached to some rough performances over the years. So we ask you: If you could go back in time and destroy one uniform before it came out, which would it be?
The sleeved Baltimore Pride pajamas
From the back, it looks like the stripes are making a big L, which seems fitting.
The Arenas-era Gold Alternate Jerseys
It’s fitting that these uniforms are so tightly tied to the Gilbert Arenas era, since it sure feels like it’s something he would have designed. "Make it gold! Throw some black stars on it! Make it sparkle! Hibachi!"
The original pajama throwback
It’s been almost a decade since the Wizards wore these uniforms and it’s still hard to believe it actually happened.
Baltimore Bullets Orange
If you love throwbacks, you were probably a big fan of these jerseys, but if you hate orange well, this was probably your worst nightmare.
The original Wizards uniforms
What these jerseys lacked in style they more than made up for in longevity.
The Malone-era super striped jerseys
The uniforms the Bullets wore during their heyday in the 70’s were classics. The modified version they wore in the 80’s with all the extra stripes were not, unless you’re a fan of stripes.
