Nats: A Team. A City. An Era. (The Story of Professional Basketball in Syracse, 1946-1963)
David Ramsey

Utica: North Country Books, 1996. AS NEW. Softcovers. SIGNED BY THE AUTHOR AND BY PLAYERS DOLPH SCHAYES (HOF) AND PAUL SEYMOUR. 142 pp. Illustrations. Second printing. One of the scarces and most sought after of all modern basketball books, the story of the early NBA's Syracuse Nationals. Relive the grand era when, if you sat in the Onondaga War Memorial during the 1950s and 60s, you saw players such as Bill Russell, George Mikan, Wilt Chamberlain, Bob Cousey and Dolph Schayes on the court. The Nations were among the league's first franchises, founded in 1946 (only eight of twenty-tree teams survived the league's first decade), won the NBA championship for the 1954-55 season; they moved to Philadelphia in 1964, becoming the present day 76ers.
