The NBA (National Basketball Association) was founded in 1946, as the BAA (Basketball Association of America). It officially changed its name to the NBA in 1949.

first there were two conferences, the NATIONAL BASKETBALL ASSOCIATION, and the AMERICAN BASKETBALL ASSOCIATION. But the NBA was better, so they merged into just the NATIONAL BASKETBALL ASSOCIATION.
