Post them here.

Did you know, that the NBA has a ghost franchise? IE a franchise which collects TV revenue but does not exist. When the ABA merged with the NBA the Spirts of St Louis/Salt Lake Rockies wanted to join the NBA, but the NBA only wanted to include 4 of the former ABA teams. So a compromise was worked out. The Spirts/Rockies would recieve a percentage of the NBA TV income. currently it is 1/32nd of the TV income.

I think the Hawks broke that in 1996 or 97 when they hosted the Bulls in the Georgia Dome.


Did you know that the Pistons have the record for fewest turnovers in a playoff game with 4.

Also, Russell was the first player to have his jersey retired twice, by the same team. The first time was in 1972, but Russell refused to cooperate. Then, in 1999, Russell agreed to a public ceremony, and his number 6 jersey was retired again.
