(Boulder-CO) Today's date is April 1st, and on this day:

'99- Detroit’s Joe Dumars becomes the 10th player in league history to play 1,000 games with the same team and one of eight to play 1,000 games with his only team.

'99- Philadelphia head coach Larry Brown wins his 900th professional game with a 88-84 win over the Miami Heat. At the time, Brown compiled a 671-547 NBA record to go along with a 229-107 ABA ledger for a combined record of 900-654.
