The Pittsburgh Ironmen played in the Basketball Association of America (BAA) in the 1946-47 season. Since the BAA merged with the National Basketball League in 1949 to create the NBA, there has not been an NBA team in Pittsburgh.
We did have one, they were horrible. Nobody has wanted one ever since. Pittsburgh is a Football and Hockey town.
No. The Rens played two years in Pittsburgh in the American Basketball League, losing in the preliminary round of the playoffs in 1962 and not making the playoffs in 1963. However, the Pittsburgh Pipers won the ABA championship in 1968 led by Connie Hawkins (who was also a member of the 62 Rens team before they folded).
Pennsylvania's sports teams include the Pittsburgh Penguins for hockey, Philadelphia 76ers for basketball, the Pittsburgh Steelers for football as well as the Philadelphia Eagles for football.
From the info I was able to gather, it looks like a tie between Temple and PIttsburgh
