When was the world's first NBA game?

Can you guess in what city the first NBA game was held?

If not, how about in which country it was held?

If you guessed any city in the USA then you'd be wrong.

The NBA was founded as the Basketball Association of America on June 6, 1946 and changed it's name to the National Basketball Association in 1949.

The NBA recognizes November 1, 1946 as the day the first ever NBA game was held featuring the Toronto Huskies and the New York Knickerbockers which the Knickerbockers won 68-66.

The game was held at Maple Leaf Gardens in Toronto, Ontario, Canada.

Gay. The Huskies are a small town Junior High team in Saskatchewan, not an NBA franchise. At least the Raptor is a relatively original name & logo.

Huskies is a classic Basketball name like the Knickerbockers. Im not saying I hate the Raptors name ..I would of just prefer the Huskies as the name for our franchise ..but it seems i'm a lil late for that.

I thought the 'Towers' was an option for the franchise's name also.

Anyone remember when the Nets were almost re-named the Swamp Dragons?
