If you "lose the yellow thingy", all you have to do is guess every NBA team - that would be pointless.

Should have included the 47-48-49 champions from the BAA to make it just a little tougher. A NBA history nut like me would have loved it and I know I wouldn't have remembered at least one of the three. The other 65 are a lot easier.

Warriors ('47), Bullets ('48) and Lakers ('49). After a while, you just have an automatic association between the year and the team.

It's probably not a bad strategy to guess Celtics or Lakers from 1950 through the 80's and then the Spurs through the 2000's.

The 1970's was the only decade that wasn't controlled by a dynasty, and even then the Celtics and Lakers each won two.

Lakers only won 1 title in the 70's. 1972. From the season that ended in 1970 through the season that ended in 1979, the Celtics and Knicks are the only teams to win more than once.

What's wild is if Bill Russell hadn't gotten hurt in 1958 (knee injury in Game 2, I believe), Boston would've most likely won 10 straight titles. Even in the early NBA, that would be tremendous. (I'm a Chicago native, by the way. Hate Boston teams.)
