I hope you are not trying to use 3 people to build this case of "majority rules" or "majority opinion". I mean, it's so easy...http://www.slate.com/id/2211157/
O'Brien had done nothing less than drag the business of pro hoops into the modern era
. He brokered the ABA-NBA merger
Now Miami is one win away from becoming the first modern era expansion team
to win a titlehttp://sports.espn.go.com/nba/playoffs/2011/columns/story?columnist=hollinger_john&page=Finalists1-10
There have been 35 NBA Finals matchups since the NBA-ABA merger
, so we at ESPN.com decided to rank all 70 teams
that have played on the NBA's biggest stage in the modern era
Kevin Love Sets Modern Era
Double-Double Record, Minnesota Timberwolves ...
Kevin Love, nursing a bruised knee, had a shot to surpass the almighty Moses Malone's record (since the ABA-NBA merger almost 40 years ago
) of 51 consecutive double-doubles.http://www.nba.com/2008/news/features/dave_mcmenamin/10/12/101108mcmenaminoutdoor/
That said, it was equally strange to me on Saturday night that Indian Wells Garden, located just outside of Palm Springs in sunny California, was downright chilly as the Nuggets downed the Suns 77-72 in the AutoTrader.com Open, the first NBA game played outdoors in the modern era
Note: there were 4 outdoor games in NBA history, in 1972, 2008, 2009 and 2010. In other words, from NBA's official point of view (from their official site), 1972 was not the modern era.http://wap.nba.com/s/2184/449?itemUriVal=cd4bb76c6772d89da1d4597b957ac2af%2F13151475412700312112824215&pageNum=1&fullstory=yes&viewType=details&bangoTitle=Phil%20Jackson:%20Seeing%20Triple
Phil Jackson is the only coach in the 'Modern Era
' of the NBA (post the
ABA merger in 1974
