As a member of the American Basketball Association (ABA), the Kentucky Colonels won the most games and had the highest winning percentage in the league’s history. The franchise was also one of only two teams to play for the duration of the ABA league. (The Indiana Pacers were the other). Unfortunately, the Kentucky Colonels were not absorbed into the NBA when it merged with the ABA. But, hey, we can make up for that past mistake when we bring an NBA expansion team to Kentucky.

“They should…the Kentucky Colonels were the best team in the ABA.”
