Daily Digits is a new daily feature we’re doing at Bullets Forever this year where we take a look at stats about the Wizards. We’ll dive into the numbers, add some context, and discuss how they affect the product on the court.

Today’s stat is the number of players in Washington’s franchise history who have played nine seasons with the franchise, which is...


When John Wall takes the floor in the season opener on Thursday, he’ll become the seventh player in the club. He will join Wes Unseld, Phil Chenier, Elvin Hayes, Gus Johnson, Brendan Haywood, and ... Charles Jones as players who have made it nine seasons with the franchise.

For all the talk about how the Wizards have been stagnant in recent years, it’s easy to forget how much player turnover they’ve dealt with in franchise history. Even some of the franchise’s most memorable players—guys like Earl Monroe, Bernard King, Bob Dandridge, and Moses Malone—spent under five full seasons in Washington.

No matter what happens in the coming years as Wall gets older and more expensive, I’m just glad we have a novel to enjoy after spending so much time dealing with short stories.
