Sioux Falls Skyforce TicketsThe Sioux Falls Skyforce is one of the oldest still-running developmental basketball teams now associated with the NBA. Founded in 1989, the franchise was originally a member of the old Continental Basketball Association. The Skyforce won its first-ever CBA title in 1996 with a one-point victory over the Fort Wayne Fury in the final moments of the five-game series. Henry James received the CBA Playoff MVP award for averaging 23.2 points and 5.6 rebounds in the finals. The Skyforce repeated as champions in 2005 with a victory over the Rockford Lightning. It proved to be the team’s final CBA game since the Skyforce soon departed for the newly-formed NBA D-League a year later. Sioux Falls then clinched the 2016 D-League championship in three games over Los Angeles. In 2017, the Miami Heat bought the Skyforce and made it an integral part of its organization.
