The Indianapolis Kautskys were founded in 1931 by Frank Kautsky. I wonder how they got their name (*sarcasm*)! Before joining the National Basketball League (NBL), the Kautskys played in the National Professional Basketball League (NPBL) and the Midwest Basketball Conference (MWC).

This article will focus on the Indianapolis Kautsky's stint in the NBL, but to give some more interesting background, when the Kautskys were in the NPBL and MWC, they were led by none other than John Wooden. If you don't know who John Wooden is, Wooden is one of, if not the best coach in NCAA history.
