The National Basketball Association (NBA) is still the pre-eminent league in the game, but there are many more that attract viewers in their droves such as the Turkish Airlines Euroleague, the VTB United League, the PBA Philippine Cup and Liga ACB.
The sport is after all an American game, originating in 1891 when James Naismith (1861-1939) was assigned to teach a physical education class at a Young Men's Christian Association (YMCA) training school in Springfield, Massachusetts. Naismith was instructed to invent a new game to keep the young men occupied and with it being winter and cold outside, he devised a game that could be played indoors.Fenerbahce's Jan Vesely scores against Real Madrid during their semi-final at the Euroleague Final Four in Istanbul (Photo by BULENT KILIC/AFP/Getty Images)6x5x4x3x
Basketball subsequently grew in popularity because graduates of said YMCA school travelled far and wide and promoted the game along with Naismith and due to the need for a simple game that could be played indoors during harsh winter months.
The game is now played by more than 250 million people worldwide in an organized fashion and its growth in popularity eventually gave rise to the Euroleague, which is second only to the NBA in terms of prestige in the sport.
The Euroleague is the highest level tier of professional basketball in Europe with teams taking part from up to 18 different countries. This competition is run by ULEB, a Europe-wide consortium of leading professional basketball leagues.
The main teams featuring in the Turkish Airlines Euroleague include FC Regal Barcelona, Real Madrid, CSKA Moskow, Panathinaikos, Fenerbahce Ulker and Brose Baskets.
The VTB United League is the professional league for basketball that is run in Russia and was founded in 2008. Since its inception the league has gone from strength to strength and their goal is to unite the leading clubs of Eastern and Northern Europe to play in just one major competition.
In the first season in 2009-10 teams from Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania, Russia and Ukraine were involved, before Finland, Poland and Belarus were added the following season. Sixteen teams now compete in the tournament with the Czech Republic and Kazakhstan adding teams to the mix.
