Before the Wizards and Mystics’ march on Juneteenth from Capital One Arena to the Martin Luther King, Jr. Memorial, Bradley Beal explained the symbolism of the closed fist, which is depicted in the new Wizards logo: “We have five fingers. The fist always represents the solidarity of a team,” Beal said as he opened his hand. “Whenever we get selfish and out of our ways, coach always puts up five fingers to show as individuals, there’s no power. The same applies for us in the everyday world,” Beal closed his hand into a fist. Beal continued, “There is power in unity. There is power in strength.”
