  2. The Chaparrals only played 3 games in Denton that year. I wouldn't consider that their home.
  3. Baltimore got the Bullets in the 40s, 10 years before the Orioles ABL 1944-47 BAA 1947-49 NBA 1949-54
  4. Interesting, but I would switch Atlanta & Pittsburgh, keeping Braves & Marlins together
  5. I'm guessing there aren't many Braves/Spurs/Cowboys/Cyclones fans: Dallas Cowboys - The first team I remember rooting for as a kid in San Antonio in the late '70s, bigger fan during Aikman/Smith/Irvin era. Atlanta Braves - Started watching in '82 on TBS while living in Iowa. Dale Murphy is my favorite player in any sport. San Antonio Spurs - Hometown team, but didn't follow basketball until the Spurs drafted David Robinson. Iowa State Cyclones - I attended ISU at the same time as Fred Hoiberg and Troy Davis. Secondary Favorites: Houston Astros/Texas Rangers (Nolan Ryan fan), Houston Oilers (Warren Moon), Iowa Hawkeyes (Dad's favorite) Don't like: Mets/Phillies/Yankees, Lakers, Redskins/Eagles/Giants, Kansas/Nebraska
  6. MLB: The Braves just finished their 54th season in Atlanta (1966-2019), but still need to play 28 years there to match their time in Boston (1871-1952) The Twins will play their 60th season in Minnesota in 2020 (1961-2020), matching their time in Washington (1901-1960) The Athletics will (probably) play 54th season in Oakland in 2021 (1968-2021), matching their time in Philadelphia (1901-1954)
  7. San Antonio: George Gervin, David Robinson, Tim Duncan, Kawhi Leonard Ames, Iowa: Fred Hoiberg, Troy Davis, Dan Gable, and Gary Thompson or Johnny Orr
  8. My favorite old baseball player names: Ossie Schreckenghost Van Lingle Mungo Piano Legs Hickman
  9. The White Sox had both catcher Giovany Soto and pitcher Giovanni Soto on their 40-man roster this year, but the pitcher was never called up and was released. The Braves had pitcher David D. Carpenter in 2014, and pitcher David L. Carpenter in 2015.
  10. As a Braves fan, I agreee with Hank Aaron for the Braves, but I tend to think of a different player for each city: Atlanta: Chipper Jones just barely ahead of Dale Murphy (my favorite), the Smoltz/Glavine/Maddux triumvirate (core of pennant-winning teams) and Phil Niekro Milwaukee: Hank Aaron well ahead of Eddie Mathews (only man to play in all 3 cities) and Warren Spahn (played almost half his career and his first World Series in in Boston) Boston: Kid Nichols over Fred Tenney, Rabbit Maranville (won 1914 Series) and (because no one living would remember the first three) Warren Spahn
  11. Ten years ago maybe, but Timmy now has 5 titles, and his unselfish play is the model for how the current Spurs were built, and what so many other teams are now trying to imitate.
  12. Here are my changes and there are many Cowboys Roger Staubach (Tom Landry if we cont coaches) Agree with Staubach. I grew up watching Smith, Aikman & Irvin, but Staubach was still the first name that came to mind.
  13. 1988-1989: All of my favorite teams were horrible Atlanta Braves 1988: 54-106 - Last place 1989: 63-97 - Last place Dallas Cowboys 1988: 3-13 - Last place 1989: 1-15 - Last place San Antonio Spurs 1988-89: 21-61 - 5th place (only ahead of expansion Miami Heat) But a combined 8 championships since then (maybe 9 soon) makes up for it.
  14. 2014-15 Eastern Division Canton Charge - Owned by the Cleveland Cavaliers Delaware 87ers - Owned by the Philadelphia 76ers Erie Bayhawks - Hybrid affiliate of the Orlando Magic Fort Wayne Mad Ants - 13! affiliates see below Grand Rapids Drive (formerly Springfield Armor) - Hybrid affiliate of the Detroit Pistons Maine Red Claws - Hybrid affiliate of the Boston Celtics Westchester Knicks - Owned by the New York Knicks Central Division Austin Toros - Owned by the San Antonio Spurs Iowa Energy - Hybrid affiliate of the Memphis Grizzlies Rio Grande Valley Vipers - Hybrid affiliate of the Houston Rockets Sioux Falls Skyforce - Hybrid affiliate of the Miami Heat Texas Legends - Hybrid affiliate of the Dallas Mavericks Tulsa 66ers - Owned by the Oklahoma City Thunder Western Division Bakersfield Jam - Hybrid affiliate of the Phoenix Suns Idaho Stampede - Likely hybrid affiliate of the Utah Jazz Los Angeles D-Fenders - Owned by the Los Angeles Lakers Reno Bighorns - Hybrid affiliate of the Sacramento Kings Santa Cruz Warriors - Owned by the Golden State Warriors Teams known to be interested in one-to-one affiliation: Minnesota, New Orleans, Toronto Other teams without a one-to-one affiliate: Washington, Charlotte, Atlanta, Indiana, Chicago, Milwaukee, Denver, LA Clippers, Brooklyn, Portland Possible realignment: East: Canton, Delaware, Erie, Maine, Westchester North: Iowa, Sioux Falls, Fort Wayne, Grand Rapids South (Central): Austin, RGV, Texas, Tulsa West: Bakersfield, Idaho, LAD, Reno, Santa Cruz
  15. You forgot Oklahoma City. Put them in the Central, move Cleveland to the East and add a third expansion team to the West (Anaheim or Las Vegas?), and that gives you 11 teams per conference.
