The ABA's Oakland Oaks had perhaps the two most contrasting seasons of any Americans pro sports team in history. In their first season, the Oaks finished 22–56 and had the second-worst performance of any professional basketball team ever in a major league. In 1968-69 however, they put together a miraculous season winning 60 games and the ABA championship.
Despite winning the title, the Oaks were a financial failure, due in large part to the proximity of the NBA's Golden State Warriors. The team was sold and moved to Washington, D.C. for the 1969–70 season, where it was renamed the Washington Caps.
