Mama India [Reloaded] is one of the best tunes, and if you don't know it yet, you soon will because this is yet another example of great house music.

Music by Evan Schaeffer, 

Have you ever wondered how every NBA team got its name? Well I did too! I decided to take an unreasonably long time to research each team and create this video. Hopefully you learn a thing or two, too!  Each team is listed in the order that they were founded or became a part of the NBA.  And since location plays a huge role in the team name (like 50%) I also hit every move as a part of this video!

AnAverage2KMobilePlayer says:

im pretty sure the Boston Celtics were made in 1916

Squid says:

Hopefully Seattle Supersonics return soon!

Miguel Lopes Rodrigues says:

Being from Europe, these changes in names and in cities is so weird!

Antoine says:

Still angry that the Nets left New Jersey for Brooklyn.

RaiderMatt86 says:

They were actually sponsored by Seagram’s distillery.

David Dorger says:

The Milwaukee Bucks are named for the Mule Deer, out favorite animal to hunt in Wisconsin, but if they ever relocate to Florida or somewhere stupid, it would be dumb to keep the same name. And if a team from somewhere relocates here, they don't have to call themselves the whatever name the got nows.

The Seattle Supersonics were really popular in Seattle so if I owned the supersonics I wouldn’t move them to Oklahoma City

eevee says:

As a kid . i alway thought the hawks logo was a pacman lol

TurboDieselDan says:

How about a video on team names that dont end with the letter [S] like Heat, Jazz, Avalanche, etc.
