ABA Basketball Teams

From 1967 to 1976, the NBA wasn't the only major professional basketball league in the United States--there was the upstart ABA (well known for their red, white and blue ball...and the three point shot that the NBA would later adopt.) Four ABA teams joined the NBA when the two leagues merged but many more teams were part of the ABA while it existed. This quiz asks you to name those teams that were part of the ABA. Some teams changed their names and their locations during their existence and this quiz wants you to guess 'em all! Good luck!
The team nickname is enough--and some teams used the same nickname in different locations, so getting one answer right may solve more than one answer.
This list only includes teams and team names that actually played regular season games. Some team names were announced but never played regular season games--those answers are NOT part of this quiz.
