Founding and Early History
Founded originally as the Basketball Association of America in 1946, the league has a rich history of success. In 1949 they changed their name to the National Basketball Association after a merger with the former National Basketball League, increasing their total number of teams by six. Continuing throughout the years, they added teams at a consistent rate with the most recent one added back in 2002. Today the NBA has a total of 30 teams playing under its name, 29 located in the United States and one located in Canada.
Over the years basketball’s popularity has risen due to star players such as LeBron James, Steph Curry and Kevin Durant entrenching themselves as modern NBA legends. Teams like the Los Angeles Lakers, Golden State Warriors, Boston Celtics, Cleveland Cavaliers and New York Knicks not only are famous in North America, but internationally as well!
