The San Francisco Pilots was a team in the American Basketball Association. The Pilots began play on November 15, at Kezar Pavilion, in San Francisco. The team posted a great record in the months of November and December and had a lot of local media attention going into the home-stretch. However, due to a steam pipe leakage at Kezar, the team was forced to cancel numerous games and move others to Potrero Hill. The Pilots resumed play against Aoshen Olympian in Maywood then continued a home and home series in San Francisco. The Pilots were selected as the "West Alternate" for the ABA playoffs, however the team was not asked to participate in the tournament, and going into the offseason, the future of the franchise was uncertain. The team is assumed defunct.
