The Rebels were an inaugural franchise in the BAA's first season. The team went 30–30, finishing 3rd in the Western Division and losing in the first round of the playoffs, two games to one to the New York Knickerbockers, in its only season before going out of business. Cleveland would not have another team in what will become the NBA until the Cavaliers were enfranchised in 1970.
