The former Washington Wizards play by play announcer gets a send-off at the Congressional Country Club in Bethesda, Md.

Steve Buckhantz got an honor last weekend!
Steve Buckhantz Twiiter

On Sunday, former Washington Wizards television play-by-play announcer Steve Buckhantz was inducted to the Washington Metropolitan Basketball of Fame at the Congressional Country Club in Bethesda, Md.

According to Buckhantz (since I couldn’t find a reliable press link), he was inducted along with 1978 NBA Champion Kevin Grevey, Bobby Lewis, Brian Magid and Ronny Watts.

The Wizards’ preseason has started with his replacement Justin Kutcher calling games and it just doesn’t feel the same that Buckhantz never really had a chance to say goodbye on the air.

Hopefully, this honor, the Nationals’ run in the MLB’s National League Championship Series and of course, the Washington Mystics 2019 WNBA championship make things a little sweeter for him!
