CLEVELAND (AP) — The NBA is celebrating its 75th anniversary team this Sunday at the All-Star Game, but it’s unlikely that the league will be able to recreate the same magic in Cleveland that it did 25 years ago.

The current MVP of the NBA, Michael Jordan, ascended first in 1997, providing a fitting preface to the team’s 50th anniversary celebration.

Last but not least, George Mikan, who is regarded as the NBA’s first superstar, received assistance from Bill Russell to get onto the platform in front of him.

The ceremony marking the golden anniversary was modest but moving.

It’s not easy to celebrate the 75th anniversary of the team. While some players are unwilling or unable to travel due to the coronavirus pandemic, others have lost their lives. Of those fifty greats, forty-seven were still alive and forty-seven were present in 1997.

The players who will be in Cleveland are grateful for the opportunity to commemorate the present while also looking back on the past.
