Often compared to Bill Russell, Wes Unseld made his mark as an undersized center with the Bullets, leading them to the NBA Finals four times and capturing the franchise's only championship.
During the championship series, Unseld was named MVP, as he led the Bullets to victory along with Elvin Hayes and Bobby Dandridge.
During his playing days, Unseld was famous for four things: rebounding, throwing an excellent outlet pass to start the fast break, his excellent defense and setting what some have called the best and hardest picks in basketball history.
The debate about who should be first on the list really comes down to personal preference. Do you like the forward who can score in bunches and grab soaring rebounds? Or the player who does the dirty work, setting screens and playing tough defense?
Hayes and Unseld can go back and forth as the best Washington player of all time, but one thing is for certain: When these two teamed up, they formed a force that won Washington its only championship in franchise history.
