mjrbaseball Posted January 7, 2006 Share Posted January 7, 2006 Hello.I am trying to find any information about the NBA One-on-One Tournaments that were held back in the 1970s. Does anyone remember them or know where to find details.I don't recall much, but I do remember watching some of them. I think they were held during the 1971-73 seasons, but I'm not sure. They were shot on tape, and played back at halftime of NBA games on ABC.From what I recall, there was little or no crowds at the tournament. The games were half-court, and even though the NBA didn't have a three-point shot, the ABA three-point circle was painted on the court for the players to "take it back" (instead of using the half-court line like you do on the playground). Games were to 21 points, and you had to win by two. There was a referee to call fouls.The only certain information I have found is that Geoff Petrie of the Portland Trailblazers won the tournament in 1973. (It's on his bio as president of the Sacramento Kings.)Thanks for your help. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
