Loving a sports is always an enthusiasm activity to in our routine lives. Somehow I exchange them to write it down instead playing some indoor or outdoor games as well. One example is the NBA. I love watching NBA (or National Basketball Association) all the time before and until now. What are my favorite teams in my generation. Our living legend is Michael Jordan, the greatest all-time basketball player in the NBA franchise history. Somehow I always look in the mirror whether I will watch some basketball games or not.

 

Every day we don’t have newspaper in our gate, my parents decided to leave on buying a copy in case of they wanted to buy. But I, for myself, cannot live without newspaper. Reading a newspaper is somehow my reading material. When I read some articles, I read sometimes in the headline news, the entertainment news, the sport news and of course, the important is the business section as well. Without a business cannot limit yourself having an income or a fixed salary net as well.

 

I am talking about today, the NBA team legends today. The NBA team dynasties I will explain furthermore in the details. Who can forget the Boston Celtics in the old-time team before until now. But added from that, the Los Angeles Lakers, Chicago Bulls and San Antonio Spurs are the leaders in the championship titles. Remember how the Boston Celtics proved they are worth of the team, which it’s because they have had already 17 winning titles. And one  championship title from LA Lakers would become the second team that has also the same winning titles in NBA history. Of course, I love LA Lakers and Chicago Bulls. And who could forget our favorite player in my generation as well? Only Michael Jordan is the person can achieved and led Chicago Bulls in winning two three-peat championship titles.

 

According to my review about NBA, it is all started in June 6, 1946, the BAA (Basketball Association of America) league only has 16 teams before. The America Hockey League president Maurice Podoloff  was appointed to be president of BAA, becoming the first person to lead two leagues at the same moment. Well, the first 11 teams were Washington Capitols, Philadelphia Warriors, New York Knicks, Providence Steamrollers, Boston Celtics, Toronto Huskies in the Eastern Division and Chicago Stags, St. Louis Bombers, Cleveland Rebels, Detroit Falcons, Pittsburgh Ironmen in the Western Division as well. In their first seaon of BAA, Philadelphia Warriors (also known today as Golden State Warriors) belted the first championship title in 1947. Their players Howie Dallmar, Jerry Fleishman, Joe Fulks, Matt Goukas, Art Hillhouse, Ralph Kaplowitz, John Murphy, Angelo Musi, Petey Rosenberg, Jerry Rullo, George Senesky and Fred Sheffield led Warriors to have championship title against Chicago Stags in 1947. This is the first team that have won through BAA and NBA history as well. As you know that these guys held their winning standing with 35 wins and 25 losses against the Chicago Stags with 39 wins and 22 losses. Also that scoring leader of the year was Joe Fulks, the legendary player who has 1,389 points and 25 assists as well. Howie Dallmar held the first record in assisting with 104. They really played that team though it’s a small league in the past. The league has no rebounds that time, or either of the three point contest as well, and blocks and steals in the first place. Edward Gottlieb became the first coach that led Warriors in their first championship title.

 

But time in 1948, the league downsizes to 8 teams left remaining and have 48 playing games. They are Philadelphia Warriors, New York Knicks, Boston Celtics, Providence Steamrollers, St. Louis Bombers, Baltimore Bullets, Chicago Stags and Washington Capitols. That year, Baltimore Bullets (also known as Washington Wizards) have won also their first championship against the challenging Philadelphia Warriors. In Baltimore Bullets roster, John Abramovic, Mike Bloom, Herm Fuetsch, Elmer Gainer, Kleggie Hermsen, Paul Hoffman, Buddy Jeannette, Johnny Jorgensen, Herm Klotz, Grady Lewis, Chet McNabb, Carl Meinhold, Chick Reiser, Irv Rotheberg, Jerry Rullo, Dick Schulz, Paul Seymour and Connie Simmons led Bullets in their 1948 championship title. Although the league has only 48 playing games that year, they still managed to get the scoring leader and the assist leader as well. Kleggie Hermsen has scoring 575 points and Buddy Jeannette delivered 70 assists in 48 games where he also played as a team coach.

 

The following year of Basketball Association of America 1948-1949 season, the third team that won in Basketball Association of America was none other than the Minneapolis Lakers or known as Los Angeles Lakers today.

On August 3, 1949, the BAA ended with their league and have to merge with NBL, creating the National Basketball Association or also to be known as NBA today. It was sad for the BAA to leave in their league but to created another league together with NBL at the start. From what I have read in the internet, this has to be gone through the famous NBA today.

 

The following year with the successful NBA has formed and created in the first season of NBA 1949-1950, Minneapolis Lakers once again challenged other teams with the 7 added teams in a contest of 17 NBA teams.
