WASHINGTON (AP) — Basketball Hall of Famer Wes Unseld, who led Washington to its only NBA championship, has died at age 74. He died Tuesday after a series of health issues, most recently pneumonia, according to his family.
Unseld was a 6-foot-7, 245-pound center who dominated as a rebounder and led Washington’s team — then known as the Bullets — to the 1978 NBA championship, earning Finals MVP honors. He played all 13 of his seasons with the franchise, then became its coach and general manager.
