Considering the start of the NBA’s existence was ushered in with complete dominance from the team representing the city of Minneapolis, there was bound to be a certain air of excitement emanating throughout the Twin Cities when it was announced that, after nearly thirty years of absence, professional basketball would be returning to the city that was once able to claim many of basketball’s biggest stars – George Mikan, Vern Mikkelsen, Elgin Baylor, Clyde Lovellette, and Slater Martin – as well as four of the first five NBA championships.
