Our friends over at Total Sports Blog captured this picture of a random Washington Bullets fan rocking a throwback #42 jersey and set it our way. There are few Wizards/Bullets fans out there so I’m not surprised that this person is old, hobbled, and afraid to show her face. I wouldn’t want to be recognized as a Washington fan either.
The real meat to this story is whose jersey is she rocking? Because of her jacket all that we know is that it’s a #42 Washington Bullets. My first thought was that it was Wes Unseld but then I remembered that he was #41. I did some digging and here’s the potential options:
1. Mark Acres (1993) – I don’t know a thing about Mark but I’m going out on a limb and saying that he’s a white dude. *Update* Just checked and he most certainly is (though I couldn’t find him in a Bullets jersey). He only averaged 4.8 ppg in the 7 games that he started for the Bullets so I’m guessing that it’s not him.
2. Greg Ballard (1978-85) – He was on the 1978 Washington Bullets
