National Basketball Association
The National Basketball Association, usually abbreviated as NBA, is widely considered the world's top-level basketball league. Despite its name, it operates in both the United States and Canada. It was founded in 1946, as one of a number of fledgling professional basketball leagues at the time, but eventually grew to its current status.
