Hey, kids, did you know Cincinnati once had its own NBA team? Yes, the Cincinnati Royals, led by former University of Cincinnati star Oscar Robertson, played in the NBA from 1957-1972 until leaving to become the Sacramento Kings.
Andy Furman’s attempts not withstanding, it’s unlikely another NBA team will ever return, thus our lone chance to catch Association action is in the form of a yearly preseason game, this time featuring the Cleveland Cavaliers against the Washington Wizards.
The Cavs are led by rising star Kyrie Irving, while the lowly Wizards feature former UK guard John Wall.
