The National Basketball Association (NBA) was established in 1946 and it quickly grew into one of the biggest sports organizations in the entire world. Today there are 30 NBA teams that each play 82 games every regular season (72 games during the shortened 2020-21 season). Once the regular season has finished, the best 16 teams proceed to the playoffs and compete for the coveted NBA championship.
With so many teams and stadium names to remember, we decided to put together this helpful list of NBA teams and arenas. You can use this list of NBA teams to help you track which stadiums you've visited or to learn more about each NBA team and their specific arena.
