How It Was Named | NBA Teams

Music by Evan Schaeffer, 

Have you ever wondered how every NBA team got its name? Well I did too! I decided to take an unreasonably long time to research each team and create this video. Hopefully you learn a thing or two, too!  Each team is listed in the order that they were founded or became a part of the NBA.  And since location plays a huge role in the team name (like 50%) I also hit every move as a part of this video!
