National Basket Ball Association (NBA) is one of the largest men's professional sports leagues. The league was started in New York City, United States on June 6, 1946 and was formerly known as the Basketball Association of America (BAA). The league got the name NBA in 1949 after the merger with their arch rival National Basketball League.

After the 1949 season the BAA decided to combine with the NBL, increasing the National Basketball Association to seventeen franchises situated in all small and large cities.

In the year 1967 the NBA faced a new threat with the creation of American Basketball Association. Both the leagues got into the war of attracting talent, trying to capture as many big stars as possible. Currently NBA has thirty franchises and continues to emerge and grow as one of the biggest sports leagues in the world.
