There were many determining factors in the Bullets' improbable 1977-78 championship, but none was more overlooked than the emergence of Kevin Grevey
.Oh sure, there was the free agent signing of Bobby Dandridge, the leadership of Wes Unseld, and even the acquisition of Charles Johnson off the scrap heap when injuries befell the backcourt, but Grevey
was a forgotten key.
Instead of rolling over, Grevey
averaged 15.5 points in just 26 minutes per game, emerging as the team's top outside threat.
Dandridge was a point forward that liked to mix it up inside, while Grevey
was an excellent catch-and-shoot guy.

returned to the area to open his
own restaurant in Falls Church.When former teammate Mitch Kupchek became the Lakers'
general manager, he

accepted, and remains in that role today.
Make no mistake, though.Kevin Grevey
is, and always will be, a Washington Bullet, and after the instrumental role he
played in that 1977-78 team, that's the way it should be.
