Welcome to Dennis Murphy Sports.com The Untold Story
Who is Dennis Murphy?

Think of “game changers,” and usually it’s that rare super-hero sports athlete who stands out among their peers. The men and women who bring us to our feet, and who make us cheer until we lose all sense of time and place.

But, it’s another type of game changer who gets a well-deserved moment in the spotlight on this website. He never made a three-point shot at the buzzer to win a pro basketball game, but without him, there would be no three-point shots. He never played on any NBA team, but without him, there would be no San Antonio Spurs, no Indiana Pacers, no Denver Nuggets, no New Jersey Nets, and maybe even no scantily-clad cheerleaders entertaining pro sports fans. Without him, there would be no NHL Edmonton Oilers winning five NHL Stanley Cup championships. There would be no sudden-death, sudden-victory overtimes in pro hockey, which were all an outgrowth of this innovator’s creations. In addition to all of that, without him, all professional sports players today might still be forced to stay with their initial draft team, forever.

This man, Dennis Murphy, is the sports world’s best kept secret, until now. He almost single-handedly created the American Basketball Association, World Hockey Association, World Team Tennis, Roller Hockey International, and many other professional sports leagues. Furthermore, he was directly responsible for changing the styles that pro sports are played today in so many leagues, as well as still affecting the lives of so many professional sports athletes, even to this day.

Dennis Murphy’s founding involvement and innovations in the games of basketball, hockey, tennis and roller hockey (among many other sports leagues), still impacts sports to this day. Throughout sports history, Dennis Murphy seemingly pulled off the impossible, not just once or twice, but quite often. In the process, he propped up his partners on his back to lead them to prosperity, and carried team franchises through tough times. He has almost single-handedly changed the face of sports in America, and earned the right to be called the ‘game changer’.
