In 1950, the NBA consolidated to eleven franchises, a process that continued until 1954, when the league reached its smallest size of eight franchises, all of which are still in the league (the Knickerbockers, Celtics, Warriors, Lakers, Royals/Kings, Pistons, Hawks, and Nationals/76ers).
Through this period, the NBA continued to strengthen with the shift of the Minneapolis Lakers to Los Angeles, the Philadelphia Warriors to San Francisco, and the Syracuse Nationals to Philadelphia, as well as the addition of its first expansion franchises.
Additionally, The Sporting News awards an unofficial (but widely recognized) Executive of the Year Award to the general manager who is adjudged to have performed the best job for the benefit of his franchise.

Today, more than fifty years later, the NBA is made up of players of many different races, with diverse backgrounds and cultures.
It is during this time that voting begins for individual awards, as well as the selection of the honorary league-wide postseason teams.
Since the first seed plays the eighth seed, the second seed plays the seventh seed, the third seed plays the sixth seed, and the fourth seed plays the fifth seed in the playoffs, having a higher seed generally means you will be facing a weaker team.

The consummate professional and a class act, Mckie was the victim of the NBA's amnesty clause, a provision written into the recent collective bargaining agreement which allows every team the one-time right to waive one player, without having the player's salary calculated into total payroll for luxury tax assessment purposes.
Mckie was known for his gritty defense, clutch perimeter shooting and leadership on the court and in the locker room.
In the 76ers finals NBA run in 2001, Mckie, playing with a slightly torn rotator cuff, played admirably at guard while being asked to defend the likes of Reggie Miller, Vince Carter, Ray Allen, and Kobe Bryant in consecutive series.

Also a standout defensive player, McHale was selected to the NBA All-Defensive First or Second Team six times and twice blocked nine shots in a game, the most ever by a Boston Celtics' player (blocked shots did not become an official NBA statistic until the 1974 season).
For the first five years of his career McHale primarily came off the bench for the Celtics, winning the NBA Sixth Man of the Year Award in 1984 and 1985.
In the first round of the NBA playoffs against the Charlotte Hornets, the Celtics were stunned by the loss of Lewis, their leading scorer, who collapsed during Game 1 due to what eventually proved to be a fatal heart condition.
