For some of you readers that have been with me from the beginning, you have heard me say that the NBA would rather you not know much about the ABA. The NBA took the remaining 4 teams of the ABA and merged it with the NBA. (Spurs, Nets, Pacers and Nuggets) But did you know that the 3 point shot that the NBA has had since the mid 80’s is actually taken from the ABA? Oh yes! On you tube in 6 parts is the History of the ABA (American Basketball Association)this is about the league that bought you Julius Dr. J Erving, George the Iceman Gervin, Artis Gilmore, David Thompson, George Mc Ginnis and whole lot more.
I am going to post all six parts starting this week. Enjoy!
