BULLETS OWNER ABE POLLIN MULLS NAME CHANGE
Published August 22, 1995
"In addition to new uniforms, a new logo, and new colors," the Bullets will apparently be getting a new name, according to Richard Justice of the WASHINGTON POST. Sources said yesterday that Owner Abe Pollin has decided that when the Bullets leave USAir Arena after the '96-97 season for the proposed downtown MCI Center, "they'll no longer be the Bullets." Justice reports that Pollin will allow fans to select the new name later this year in a name-the-team contest, reportedly to be sponsored by Boston Market. The Washington Post is also discussing a possible promotional role in the endeavor (WASHINGTON POST, 8/22).
