When Syracuse Ruled the NBA, Remembering the Nats

13may1:00 pm2:30 pmWhen Syracuse Ruled the NBA, Remembering the NatsDon’t let the grainy black-and-white footage fool you. The Syracuse Nationals could play.

Event Details

Dolph Schayes, star of the Nats, would be dropping 3-pointers and dunking on Joel Embid in today’s NBA. The Nats played, in a brutal and entertaining style, before rowdy fans in Syracuse from 1946 to 1963. They ruled the NBA as champions in 1955, winning the title in a comeback victory at Onondaga War Memorial. Many in Central New York lament the day, May 16, 1963, when the Nats departed Syracuse to become the Philadelphia 76ers.

The Nats, gone 60 years, still matter.
