The NBA began in 1946 after merging with the National Basketball League. The NBA’s league offices
were and are currently still located in New York. The league has seen rapid growth since its fruition
starting with only 8 teams in 1954 and expanding to currently 30 teams nationwide with 1 team in Canada.
It was in the 1960’s that the NBA popularity began to skyrocket and saw the Boston Celtics win
11 championships in 4 years losing only to the Philadelphia 76ers and the St. Louis Hawks. Also
during this the time period Wilt Chamberlain shocked with the world with his raw talent, overwhelming
athleticism and setting a record that is yet to be broken of scoring 100 points in a single game.
As the NBA’s popularity was increasing, they were still competing with the American Basketball
Association who in an attempt to outdo them were signing big named players like Moses Malone and
Julius Erving to play in their league which boasted the "3 point shot" and "slam dunk" both of which
were not currently exercised in the NBA. It wasn’t until 1976 that both leagues merged solidifying
the NBA as the biggest professional basketball league in the United States and the world.
Since this time, the popularity of basketball has continued to grow around the world.
It has quickly become a worldwide sport being held as an important sport in the Olympics
and many international stars put on an NBA uniform today. Be sure to buy NBA tickets today! and
