The craziest NBA and ABA team owners and the wild stories of their ownership are the central topic on the latest episode of the Over and Back Classic NBA podcast’s Basketball Mysteries of the 1970s.

The 1970s were a wild time in professional basketball and nowhere is that more evident than the eccentric owners that ruled the decade. From penny-pinching MLB owners enacting mustache bonus to an ownership group drafting players by alphabetical order, the stories are hard to believe. In this episode, Jason and Rich discuss a number of wild NBA and ABA owners including Charlie Finley, Earl Foreman, John Y. Brown, Jack Kent Cooke, Franklin Mieuli and many more.
