Half of the current Top 10 golfers in the PGA Tour today are Americans, including #1 Dustin Johnson and #3 Jordan Spieth. But while they are excellent golfers, none of them possess the star quality of Woods or Palmer that makes us watch TV on Sundays. Golf is still looking for its next American superstar and until then, it’s going to be in the back end of the Top 10.
The NBA continued with 8 teams from 1955 until 1961 when the Chicago Packers joined the league. The Packers, now the Washington Wizards, are not considered to be the first expansion team, that distriction goes to the Chicago Bulls because the Bulls, who joined in 1966, had an actual expansion draft. From 1966 until 2004 the league seen an expansion boom with a total of 21 teams joining the league.
