The NBA was originally founded in 1946 as the Basketball Association of America (BAA) before merging with the National Basketball League in 1949 and renaming as the National Basketball Association.

Considered the premier men's professional Basketball team in the world, the NBA is contested by 30 teams, 29 from the USA and 1 from Canada. Players in the NBA are the best paid athletes in the world. The NBA has a soft salary cap in place so that leagues can pay players above the cap bet see reduced privileges in free agency.

The leagues consists of 2 Conferences of 3 Divisions with 5 teams each.

Season Structure

The regular season runs from October to April, with each of the 30 teams playing 82 games, half at home and half away.

At the end of the regular season the top 8 teams from each Conference compete for the Larry O'Brien Championship Trophy.

Each team plays a best of 7 series against another team, with the first team to win 4 games advancing to the next round until all but 1 team from each Conference are eliminated.

These final 2 teams will play a best of 7 series known as the NBA Finals in June.

Team Performance

The Los Angeles Lakers and Boston Celtics each have 17 Championship wins each with the Lakers having the most final appearances at 32.

There are 5 teams currently in the NBA with no finals appearances, the Charlotte Hornets, Los Angeles Clippers, Memphis Grizzlies, Minnesota Timberwolves and New Orleans Pelicans.

The most common bets on the NBA are Money Line, Points Totals and Spreads. There are also NBA-specific markets available such as Player Rebounds or Player Assists.
