Youtube Monday: The Championship

1975 NBA finals. The first Championship series in any of the 4 proffessional American Sports in any Sport to pit two black coaches against each other. Superbowl 41 became the second. I've already gone into detail in the History section as to how this Championship was historic in many so levels given the Warriors extreme underdog status. It was also notable if you want to look at the fact that the Warriors arguably paved the way for minorites to get Coaching jobs at any Organisation. The irony is that while the Warriors are often left behind in the playing field they started a rarity in itself while other teams and indeed Leagues were left to catch up.

For as far as we've come, we haven't come as far as we think we've come, but we have to continue to work on it."
