“The Washington Wizards City Edition uniform celebrates the District of Columbia and our capital’s team. It features a marble pattern on the side panels in the shape of the Washington Monument and a beveled effect on the numbers that resemble iconic Washington D.C. monuments.”

“Dear PoPville,

I wanted to give the Wizards a shout out here. They have been balling lately, and last night was an absolute thriller against the Cavaliers, defending world champions. The Wiz ultimately lost in overtime, breaking their streak of 17 straight home wins, but the atmosphere was electric and basketball fans around the country are starting to take notice of them being one of the top teams in the league.

The Wizards are largely overlooked in DC compared to the other three major sports teams, but if anyone is looking to join the bandwagon, now is the time. Tickets are generally cheap as long as they aren’t playing an elite team, and it’s a great escape for a few hours from everything else going on. Go Wiz.”
