Do you know how the Warriors got their name?

Philadelphia Warriors

To understand why the team from Golden State is called the Warriors, we first must go back in history to see where the team came from. The Warriors haven’t always played in Oakland. The team started in Philadelphia. Founded in 1946, the owner Peter A. Tyrrell wanted to give the team a name from an old basketball team. And like that, the Philadelphia Warriors were formed. The team played in Philadelphia until 1962, when Franklin Miuelli purchased the team, and moved it to the West Coast.

Prior to the 1962-1963 NBA season, the Warriors moved to San Francisco, but kept the name Warriors. They only changed the city calling themselves the “San Francisco Warriors. The current name, Golden State Warriors, was born prior to the 1971-72 NBA season, when the Warriors started exclusively using Oakland Arena as home floor.

Top 5 Lakers of all time

Do you know where do the Lakers play?

Where do the Lakers play?

Where do the Lakers Play Staples Center

Staples Center

The Los Angeles Lakers play at the Staples Center. Following the 1998-1999 season, the Lakers moved from the Great Western Forum to the Los Angeles Staples Center located at 1111 South Figueroa Street Los Angeles, California, 90015 and has a capacity for 18,320 for a Lakers home game. The Staples Center complex is 950,000 square feet and was opened on October 17th, 1999 by the AEG. Although the Staples Center is the home of Lakers it also is the home of the Los Angeles Kings, Los Angeles Clippers, LA Sparks and has numerous other concerts and sporting events throughout the year.

For the move to the Staples Center, the Lakers wanted a new coach, and they got their man in Phil Jackson. It was Jackson who was finally able to deliver a championship for Shaq and Kobe, making them work together.

Even though the Lakers have won the same amount of titles in the Staples Center as in the Forum, one can make an argument for the Staples being the more successful home arena. During the years of the Staples, the Lakers won the title in the first year at the Staples Center.the Lakers managed to win three titles in a row, something that they haven’t done in the Forum.

Where did Lakers used to play?

Minneapolis Armory Lakers court

Minneapolis Armory

Many people forget that the Los Angeles Lakers actually started their storied franchise history in Minneapolis. Ben Berger and Morris Chalfen were the original owners of the Lakers, buying the team in 1947. They disbanded the Detroit Gems, and then started the Lakers franchise with an investment of just $15,000. Back then, the league was called National Basketball League or NBL. The name Lakers comes from the nickname of the city of Minnesota, “the land of 10,000 Lakes”. Led by center George Mikan, who became the NBA’s first superstar, the Lakers won the title in the first two years in the league. It is worth noting, that the first title came in the Basketball Association of America (BAA). Lakers are one of the six teams remaining from the original BAA league that merged with the NBL to form the NBA.
