Robb--hockey  teams  move  around almost as much  as players.   
NHL-
Winnipeg Jets to Phoenix Road Runners

Phoenix ROADRUNNERS??? Might thou be biased against our local (LA) COYOTE population?  Wink

Sorry!   Embarrassed  The Roadrunners were the old Western Hockey League team that played against The San Francisco Seals, Los Angeles Blades, Seattle Totems, Vancouver Canucks, Edmonton Eskimos, etc.

I do recall the circus thing with the Knicks (and NY was a "hotbed" of interest compared to many of the other NBA cities of the time). The influx in the late 50s/early 60s of Wilt, Russell, Robertson, and Baylor really began to turn things around for the league. The "old" stars were great but not box office gold, guys like Cousy, Lovellette, Pettit, Sharman, Schayes, etc. To this day, I still far prefer college hoops to the NBA.

And weekend events at the old MSG would consist of 1-2 H.S. prelim's followed by an NBA doubleheader! All for one single low admission price  of maybe $2.00 - early 60's.

In  BB--Braves to   Milwaukee, Browns  to  Baltimore,  A's to K.C. then Oakland,   Wash to  Minn.   (& Texas). Very  little  compared to  hockey.  Am I missing  any?
NHL-
Hamilton Bulldogs-Pittsburgh Pirates to Philadelphia Quakers
New York Americans to Brooklyn Americans
Ottawa Senators to St. Louis Eagles
Oakland Seals to Cleveland Barons (Barons folded into Minnesota North Stars - then to Dallas Stars
Atlanta Flames to Calgary
Winnipeg Jets to Phoenix Road Runners
Atlanta Thrashers to Winnipeg Jets
Kansas City Scouts to Colorado Rockies to New Jersey Devils
Hartford Whalers to Carolina Hurricanes
Quebec Nordiques to Colorado Avalanche

thanx  Mike-forgot  Atlanta,  Oakland &   Montreal  to Wash.   My point was --- many much more recent hockey changes.   

Rochester, to Cincinnati,  to  2 home  cities as  the Kings at the same  time--KC-Omaha?.  Then to Sacramento.

Joe-remember when the circus   [and many more]  put the  Knicks  into  the 69th Regiment  Armory?

Robb--proof  of college BB bigger than pro--Jack Molinas  point shaving  in  the 50s.  Think  he did it again after he got out of prison.  There have been  a few more college betting scandals.

I knew  Molinas--fascinating  guy--murdered by Mafia in Hollywood  around 1980.  I'll  discuss  him  on another post

Montreal Expos to Washington Nationals. Boston-Milwaukee-Atlanta Braves. A's from Philly to KC to Oakland. Then there were the very early days......

My fav's - NBA - the saga of the Rochester Royals. They've been nearly  everywhere (and may not be done!)

Hard to believe now that Rochester, Syracuse, and Fort Wayne had long-time NBA franchises. Three in NY State alone! And, until 1960, none further west than St. Louis. I recall the Royals arena sat like 4500 people at most and the lighting for televised games from there made it look like they were playing in a coal mine.

The NBA was like a minor league sport until The 1960s.  Not many people were interested.   Basketball was a college sport.  The NHL was probably more popular in USA during The 1950s than The NBA, even though it only had 4 US based teams, to The NBA's 8.
