The National Basketball League is an international professional basketball league composed of thirty teams. The league is considered as the top professional men’s basketball league in the entire world. It is also one of the four official professional sports franchises in the United States and Canada. A number of basketball leagues throughout the world are playing nowadays, but none of them can ever surpass the reputation of the NBA. The reason for this is that even though there are many basketball leagues that are in existence, nothing has ever been able to surpass the standard of play of the NBA in terms of performance and standard level. No matter how big or how small a country is, there will always be a talented group of basketball players who will rise to the top and challenge the best in terms of performance.
There have been a lot of controversies in between the NBA and the National Basketball League regarding the rules and structure of their governing bodies. One of the most significant matters that have been running through the heads of both parties is the NBA’s salary cap. The salary cap is considered as a part of the NBA’s credibility and image, which is why a lot of its players and even its teams have declined to join the league due to the said salary cap. But recently, commissioner David Stern has been forced to back up his decision by contemplating the effect of the proposed NBA salary cap on the league’s finances.
As a result, many teams, especially the powerful ones such as the Miami Heat and the Los Angeles Lakers have threatened to leave the NBA if such regulations are implemented. This is quite unprecedented and yet, it is true that a possible exit from the NBA would significantly affect the business aspect of the entire organization. That is why the association between the NBA and the players’ association has been working out an agreement with the players so that they can still play a part in running the professional basketball league. It is hoped that the latest developments can be advantageous for the association and help the professional basketball teams in the long run.
