Recap: Washington Wizards Retire Jersey of Earl "The Pearl" Monroe

Here are some pictures of Earl "The Pearl" Monroe's jersey being retired by the Washington Wizards, who used to be known as the Baltimore Bullets.

I had the pleasure of being in the owner's box with Abe Pollin and his wife Irene along with other basketball notables such as Earl Monroe, Kevin Loughery, Archie Clark, Phill Chenier, Wes Unseld, Mike Riordan, Mike Davis, and my dad Stan McKenzie.
