But What About Wizards Fans?

SB Nation's Bullets Forever explains why Wizards fans might not feel all warm and fuzzy about Michael Jordan being inducted into the basketball Hall of Fame:

How do I feel about this?  Jordan the player was absolutely the best that ever lived.  He was the most electrifying player and the most competitive player this game has ever seen (or will see).  Friends tease me at how much I watch old Jordan games when he was in Chicago in my spare time.  He was absolutely stunning.

But I also can't help but feel bitter about his time in DC, a tenure dominated by Jordan often putting his own interests above the good of the team.  Maybe he meant well, maybe he didn't, but it's tough to deny that Jordan did not elevate the Wizards to a level that anyone should be proud of.  Two straight 37-win seasons are a failure, even for the Wizards.
