The Bullets would stun their fans and the entire league by trading Earl "The Pearl" Monroe. The trade was done 3 games into the season and Monroe was sent to the rival New York Knicks.[1] The Bullets received Dave Stallworth, Mike Riordan, and cash.[1] The Bullets did not adjust well to not having Monroe as they finished the season with a 38-44 record. The losing record would still be good enough to win the Central Division. In the playoffs, the Bullets would face Monroe and the New York Knicks and were beaten by the Knicks in 6 games.
