The Hartford Capitols played in the Eastern Basketball Association from 1966 through 1974, and were very successful during their time in the league. They would post a winning record almost every year, with their best record coming in 1972-73 at 25-7, which would be their second to last year in the league. That year, they would lose the playoff championship to the Wilkes-Barre Barons. They would make good the next year though, beating Allentown for the title in 1974. Despite being based in random gyms and schools during their time, they had some big names play for them. Art Heyman, the 1963 first overall pick in the NBA draft would eventually suit up for Hartford. And future Hall of Famer KC Jones played for the team as well. The Capitols would unfortunately fold after winning their ’74 title.
