Before relocating and becoming the Texas Legends, the Colorado 14ers won the 2008-09 NBA D-League title. The successful franchise did not, however, get its John Denver-approved named by referencing a locally significant year -- like how the Delaware 87ers name is a reference to the year (1787) in which Delaware was the first state to ratify the Constitution -- but for the many famous 14,000-foot mountain peaks in Colorado.
