For the second time in his pro career, the Lakers defeated the Philadelphia 76ers for the championship title. Additionally, Johnson, who scored 13 points, and made 13 rebounds and 13 assists in Game 6 of the 1982 Finals, earned his second series MVP award. The following season (1982-83) saw the third Finals match-up between the Lakers and the 76ers in four years. This time, however, L.A. was defeated by Philadelphia, losing four consecutive games to the 76ers and winning none during the series.

Carron came to the conclusion that home court advantage was any extra benefit that a team receives by playing at their home stadium or arena. Each team in the NBA plays 82 games in one regular season with a split of 41 home games and 41 games as the visiting team, thereby each team should win approximately 21 home games at minimum each year. Box scores were examined for every home game for the NBA 2008 season through the 2011 season for the Utah Jazz, Houston Rockets, Atlanta Hawks and Chicago Bulls garnering a total of 123 total games that were investigated. Through examination of their overall win/loss record it was found that the Utah Jazz and Chicago Bulls had above average winning records at home, but subpar records while being the visiting team. The Houston Rockets and Atlanta Hawks had winning records both at home and as the visiting team, but as the visiting team their record was better than their home record.

The San Antonio Spurs The San Antonio Spurs were founded in 1967 by Irving Allen Mathews. They were originally named the Dallas Chaparrals, then the Texas Chaparrals, which both played in the ABA, but then were changed to the San Antonio Spurs in 1973 and joined the NBA in 1976. Now the Spurs are one of of the best, if not the best, basketball franchises ever. I think that they are the best because of their consistency of winning. The Spurs have only missed the playoffs 4 times out of of their 40 seasons in the NBA, which is the least amount of times missing the playoffs in NBA history.
Their work, which generates exorbitant amounts of money year in and year out, deserves Compensation. In the 2013-14 seasons, the NBA grossed $4.79 billion in revenues. That’s over 100 times more than an average NBA player makes in his whole career. NCAA men’s basketball tournament accumulated $1.15 billion in ad revenue, $200 million more than the NBA Playoffs that same year. Despite the staggering profit numbers they generated, tournament participants did not receive one cent for their efforts.
Shaq signed with reebok because they were offering him the most money and they wanted an icon like shaq to be a part of their business. In 1998 reebok released shaq because he wasn’t selling enough shoes and then in 2008 he signed with the company Li Ning. Shaq also sucks at free throws and his free throw percentage is under 500. When you have a 7 foot 1 man playing in the NBA, you’re bound to have big feet (size 22 to be exact). With the average male in the U.S. having a 10.5 shoe size, he doubles most Americans.
