10. Antawn Jamison

Seasons in WAS:

6 (2004-2010)

Stats w/ the Wizards

20.8 PPG, 8.9 RPG, 1.8 APG, 1,4 Stocks, 44.7 FG%

Jamison spent six seasons in Washington. Outside of the 41 games he played for the franchise before being traded to the Cleveland Cavaliers during the 2009-10 season, Jamison was always a safe bet to eclipse 70 games played in a given year. His games played totals of 82, 81, 79, 70 and 68 in five full seasons made him the most durable Wizard of the mid-2000s, as well as an excellent scoring complement to Gilbert Arenas and Caron Butler. The former No. 4 overall pick of the Golden State Warriors made a positive impact both tin the scoring column and on the boards. He averaged 20.7 points per game as a Wizard, and had his three best rebounding seasons as a pro in the nation’s capital. His 21.4 points and 10.2 rebounds per game in the 2007-08 campaign was the most productive season of his career, and the only year he averaged a double-double. Add in two All-Star appearances and a stat line of 21/9 over 6 seasons and Antawn Jamison makes the top 10 in this franchises history.


9. Juwan Howard

Seasons in WAS:

7 (1994-2001)

Stats w/ the Bullets | Wizards

18.4 PPG, 7.4 RPG, 3.3 APG, 1.3 Stocks, 47.8 FG%

The No. 5 overall pick in 1994, Juwan Howard wasted no time making an impact in the NBA. The former Michigan All-American averaged 17.0 points per game as a rookie, including an impressive 8.4 rebounds per contest. In his second year, he improved that mark to what would be a career-high 22.1 and another 8 rebounds a game. His six-plus years in Washington was unique because he became a Wizard in 1997 after the Bullet name was seen as too controversial as a team nickname. While his Bullets numbers were slightly better, his 18.4 scoring average while in D.C. was good no matter what the team was called. He also represented the team in the 1996 All-Star game. Not too bad for the former member of Michigan’s Fab Five.

8. Jeff Malone

Seasons in WAS:

7 (1983-1990)

Stats w/ the Bullets

20.2 PPG, 2.7 RPG, 2.8 APG, 0.8 Stocks, 47.7 FG%

Jeff Malone was picked number 10 overall in 1983 by Washington which led to him playing seven full seasons with the team. From his third season until his last season with the Bullets (1985-90), he averaged 20 or more points per game five straight years. Of course he saved his best for last with the Bullets, posting a career high 24.3 scoring average in that 1989-90 season. While not a threat from three-point range, Malone was a slashing guard who could get to the rim and the free-throw line. A career 87 percent free-throw shooter, Malone was simply a scoring machine. Let’s not forget about his two All-Star selections as well. He was one hell of a player.

7. Phil Chenier

Seasons in WAS:

9 (1971-1980)

Stats w/ the Bullets

17.9 PPG, 3.7 RPG, 3.1 APG, 2.3 Stocks, 44.6 FG%

The three-time NBA All-Star and one-time All-NBA selection was for a time one of the league’s premier guards. Posting five straight seasons in which he averaged 19.7 points per game or more, Chenier was a workhorse on the offensive end for Washington. That he also averaged 1.6 steals, 3.0 assists and 3.6 rebounds over his career proved his willingness to contribute in all facets of the game. If not for a back injury that kept him out of the 1978 NBA Finals, Chenier could be as high as No. 5 on this list.
