Today's Date in NBA History

(Boulder-CO) Today's date is October 8th, and on this day:
'75- The San Antonio Spurs, then members of the ABA, defeated the NBA’s Atlanta Hawks 109-107 in the first basketball game ever played in the Louisiana Superdome.

'99- Los Angeles Lakers Co-Owner/Vice President Earvin "Magic" Johnson, the legendary point guard who directed the great Showtime Lakers of the 1980s, is the subject of ESPN's SportsCentury series. Johnson was selected by a distinguished panel of 48 journalists, historians, observers and administrators as #17 on the list of the greatest North American athletes of the 20th Century.
Enjoy your day!
