This is one of those uniquely San Francisco crazy stories. The original Saints were tied to USF then became an all Chinese team before moving on to the pros as part of the ABL.
The pro version of the Saints played in San Francisco in 1961 and were part of the upstart competitor to the NBA: the ABL. They left San Francisco for Oakland to make room for the new kids in town, the Warriors, and became the Oakland Oaks . Unfortunately the ABL folded after a couple of years, but it left one of the greatest legacies to basketball, the three point line. I can only imagine Saints players dreaming of shooting threes like Steph.
