Follows is the correct link in the above post for title:

1948/49 Final Standings, National Basketball League, Basketball Reference

A press note from July 13, 1943, reported St. Louis Cardinal pitcher Howie Pollet would not participate in the annual baseball All-Star game due to his recent enlistment in the service. Courtesy links to some of Pollet's career shutouts were posted. ... A news article reporting the merging of the National Basketball League and the Basketball Association of America into the National Basketball Association appeared next to the August 4, 1949, news story reporting one of Pollet's shutouts. ... For reference purposes, the links to the basketball standings provide a brief evolutionary history of the N.B.A. ... ... Additionally, press dates for Pollet's shutouts supplied pretexts for posting sample links of other coincidental news events. ... Pollet won the N.L. ERA title in 1943 and again in 1946 after returning from WWII.
