Joining the ABA in the 1967-68 season, the Minnesota Muskies were one of the first 11 teams that joined the league. It is not a surprise that there was a team located in Minnesota, considering that the ABA's then Commissioner, George Mikan, played for the Minneapolis Lakers during the entirety of his NBA career. The team was named the Muskies because it is a popular fish in the region.
