The Washington Bullets are down to five options for their new nickname: Dragons, Express, Sea Dogs, Stallions and Wizards.

The five finalists were chosen from among 500,000 entries and 3,000 names submitted by fans. Between now and Feb. 20, fans will vote to determine the winner, which will be announced Feb. 22. The new name will take effect for the 1997-98 season.

To vote, call (900) 990-6224. The call will cost $1, and proceeds will go to the Bullets/NBC4 anti-violence campaign.
