We lost Wes Unseld this year, who began his pro career as a rookie MVP, led Washington to its only NBA championship and was chosen one of the 50 greatest players in league history, died after a prolonged battle with pneumonia. He spent his entire 13-season playing career with the Bullets-Wizards franchise, then was its coach and general manager. Unseld instantly made the team then known as the Baltimore Bullets into a winner after he was taken with the No. 2 overall pick. In the NBA, Unseld averaged 10.8 points and 14 rebounds for his career and is still Washington’s career leader in total boards. He was No. 1 in assists, too, until John Wall overtook him in 2016. Unseld was Washington’s head coach from 1987-94, going 202-345 with one playoff appearance. He also had a seven-year stint as GM from 1996-03, with one other postseason trip.
