  Remember the ABA: Los Angeles Stars
During the summer of 1968, Los Angeles construction businessman Jim Kirst bought the struggling Anaheim Amigos.
Although attendance had been poor, Kirst stated that, "We are in Los Angeles to stay." For the 1969-70 season, the Stars signed two fine (and unheralded) rookies: guards Willie Wise and Mack Calvin.
Apparently, the Stars' 1970 playoff success was complete surprise to the Stars' front office, which had failed to book the LA Sports Arena for several required dates.
