Dubbed “The Hizzistory of Bizzasketball,” Uncle Snoop took the audience back to the 1954 NBA Finals, which had the Minnesota Lakers — no, the Lakers weren’t always in Los Angeles — playing the Syracuse Nationals, who later formed into the Philadelphia 76ers.
Snoop notes that in 1954, black people weren’t allowed to play basketball. “There’s no jumping, no dunking, no heroics. Just basic basketball,” he said, noting, “that’s probably before black people had TVs, so we wasn’t tripping.”
But who won the game? “Who cares.” (The Lakers wound up winning the Finals in seven games — one of the 16 championships that’ve help inflates egos of Lakers fans across the nation.)
