Pittsburg Ironmen, Providence Steam Rollers, St. Louis Bombers, Toronto Huskies, Washington Capitols, Ft. Wayne Pistons, Minneapolis Lakers, Rochester Royals, Tri City Blackhawks, Syracuse Nationals and the Baltimore Bullets. Only two of these original teams have the same names such as the Boston Celtics and the New York Knickerbockers (knicks). Eight Of the original teams are still in existance like the Boston Celtics,

Wayne Pistons (aka Detroit Pistons), Minneapolis Lakers (aka Los Angeles Lakers), Rochester Royals (aka Sacramento Kings), Tri City BlackHawks (aka Atlanta Hawks), Syracuse Nationals (Philidelphia 76ers). These teams changed names or aren't in the NBA anymore because they changed founders or the city became less popular.
