Wait, as Dub Nation, do you even know that the GS Warriors were founded in 1946 and were originally based in Philadelphia. Also one of the original members of the BAA, the team won the league’s first championship behind the play of future Hall of Fame forward Joe Fulks, the BAA’s inaugural scoring leader.
Of course the GSW lost in the BAA finals the next season, and in 1949 the team became a part of the NBA when the BAA merged with the National Basketball League (NBL).
The Warriors finished higher than fourth place in their division just once in their first six seasons in the new league. In 1955–56, however, the Warriors, led by forward Paul Arizin and centre Neil Johnston, posted the best record in the league and captured their first NBA title.
To add to that in 1959 Philadelphia added local product Wilt Chamberlain, who would go on to become one of the greatest players in NBA history.
However, while with the Warriors, he famously scored an NBA-record 100 points in a 1962 contest, in what would prove to be the team’s final year in Philadelphia.
To add to that, then a group of San Francisco Bay area investors purchased the franchise after the 1961/62 season and moved the team, which now later became known as the San Francisco Warriors.
