The PBA and LPBA play two seasons each year. The Spring-Summer league runs from May – August with playoffs in September. The Fall-Winter league runs from November – February with playoffs in March. The PBA and LPBA are Nationwide. Current divisions include Northeast, Midwest, Northwest, Southwest, South, and Southeast. The PBA is the largest Spring-Summer Pro Basketball League in the United States and expanded to include a Fall-Winter season beginning in 2022.
The PBA is the only Pro league in the US that features 16 category box scores, upper third on screen game graphics, play by play commentary, and every game available on TV and on all smart devices (Roku, Amazon Fire, YouTube, IOS and Android). Whether you are an existing team scouting a future opponent or breaking down your own game film, an overseas coach or scout or general manager, an NBA executive, or a sports agent or sponsor; you can watch every game on your big screen TV in your living room with the game being called with commentary for free. This Global exposure (PBATV is available in over 2 Billion homes around the World) helps create a league of opportunity for players and coaches as well as opportunity by way of sponsorship for team ownership. This isn’t the home team keeps check marks in the book for points only and a youtube video of squeeky shoes where you don’t know the score, time remaining, or names of the players and coaches. No serious sponsor or scout would take that seriously. The PBA checks all the boxes of what you’d expect from Pro Basketball but at a price point where families can cheer on the home team without breaking the bank.
If you want Pro – You want the PBA!
