The first part of a multi-episode series from the Over & Back NBA history podcast looks at each franchise’s Hall of Fame players.

The Over & Back Classic NBA Podcast starts a brand-new series where hosts Jason Mann and Rich Kraetsch discuss each & every Hall of Fame player to have played for a particular franchise.

With each team, we’ll look at every Hall of Fame player to ever suit up for the team, Hall of Fame players that were drafted or acquired but never played for the franchise, each team’s possible future Hall of Fames, our top what-if scenarios in each franchise’s history, and finally the ultimate hipster and ultimate cool-kid Hall of Fame jersey.

This episode focuses solely on the early teams in NBA history:

  • New York Knicks
  • St. Louis Hawks/Atlanta Hawks
  • Boston Celtics
  • Syracuse Nationals/Philadelphia 76ers
  • Minneapolis Lakers/Los Angeles Lakers
  • Rochester Royals/Cincinnati Royals/Kansas City-Omaha Kings/Sacramento Kings
