The National Basketball Association has certainly come a long way since its inception in 1946. Back then, the league served as arena filler whenever the circus was not in town or a prize boxing match is not available. However, its popularity started to grow thanks to dedicated players and personnel who gave everything to make it the global league that basketball fans now know of. It is no wonder that the great players also become brand ambassadors for the big companies who are willing to pay top dollar.
Yet, the heart of the NBA’s story lies in the games and its format. At present, the league has the Eastern and Western Conference with each conference having three divisions. Then, each division has five teams each. The Eastern Conference has the Atlantic, Central and Southeast divisions while the Western Conference has the Northwest, Pacific and Southwest Divisions. Each team will play 82 regular season games and the 16 playoff teams are determined based on the team’s win-loss record.
From the playoffs, the champions in both conferences play in the NBA Finals for the right to own the Larry O’ Brien trophy. There are a lot of great match-ups that you can catch live during the regular season. But when your team makes the playoffs, do not think twice in buying tickets and witness first-hand the best professional basketball action on earth.
