The world’s favorite sporting game of basketball remained just a school and college game even after the Second World War and was recognized in 1946 as a professional game in United States. Before its formal acknowledgement as a sporting game, basketball was only a street game played by the students. The game was acclaimed professional with the formation of BAA (Basketball Association of America). The teams like Chicago Stags, New York Knickerbockers and Boston Celtics were a part of BAA who played games at a professional level for three years. Then BAA merged with NBA and demand for NBA tickets Online got sky high.

The merger of BAA with NBA was big news for the basketball enthusiasts and admirers across the planet. More and more teams continued to enter the NBA league and finally today we see thirty teams playing for NBA out of which twenty nine are American while one is Canadian.
