John Wall and Bradley Beal will play in their first playoff game tonight against the Chicago Bulls. But it was just nine years ago the Wizards squared off with the Bulls in a first-round series.
It might seem like a different world then, and in some ways it was. The jerseys were teal and #SoWizards was not trending on Twitter. Twitter didn't even exist yet. And those days were the peak of Gilbert Arenas' popularity and play.
Arenas was a star, the biggest in D.C., one of the biggest names in the NBA. The apex of his career? Hitting the game-winner against the Bulls in Game 6 to take the series. It made Steve Buckhantz's "DAGGER" call famous, and marked the only playoff series win for Washington this century.
Relive it here. And hope we get to hear a few more daggers this summer.
