1968-69 ABA Basketball Windows Season
- Mighty Oaks: With Barry, top rookie Armstrong, 60-18 Oakland towers in playoffs
- Second Shot: New league steals NBA top scorer Rick Barry for its second season
- Early ABA Stars: MVP Mel Daniels, Connie Hawkins, Louie Dampier and more
The 11-team league was dominated by Rick Barry’s Oakland Oaks, which started 15-2, added a 16-game win streak, and finished 60-18, even though 34-point scorer Barry lasted only 35 games in his ABA debut. With Rookie of the Year Warren Armstrong (21.5 ppg) and future NBA coaches Doug Moe (19 ppg) and Larry Brown (league-best 7 apg), Oakland scored 126.5 ppg. In the playoff finals, Oakland need only five games to dispose of Eastern Division champ Indiana and ABA MVP Mel Daniels (24 ppg, league-leading 16.5 rpg).
The young league already had a fine selection of former college stars and future ABA legends: Minnesota’s Connie Hawkins (30 ppg, 11 rpg in 47 games), Kentucky’s Louie Dampier (25 ppg, 6 apg), Denver’s Larry Jones (scoring champ at 28.4 ppg) and such eventual ABA legends as Byron Beck, Ron Boone (a rookie in 6’8-69), Roger Brown, Freddie Lewis and Bob Verga.
