Today in NBA History

Today marks the first day of a new segment – Today in NBA History.  This segment is pretty self explanatory, but for those of you confused, it is information relating to the NBA that occurred on the day of the post in years prior.  (Please note that I’ll be posting from Australia, so they day might be different in your time zone).

 

1962 – Patrick Ewing was born in Jamaica.  Ewing, a member of the Hall of Fame, enjoyed 17 years in the NBA (15 seasons with the New York Knicks) and retired with career averages of 21 points, 9.8 rebounds, 2.4 blocks.  He was also a member of the Dream Team in the 1992 Barcelona Olympics, an 11 time NBA All-Star and a 7x All-NBA team (1 All-NBA First team, 6 All-NBA Second team).

 

1976 – Denver, Indiana, New York and San Antonio transfer from the ABA (American Basketball League) to the NBA.
