It is one of the four major professional sports leagues in the United States and the highest level basketball event in the world.




Each team plays 82 games. A total of eight teams from each conference advance to the playoffs. Every game in the playoffs is a best-of-seven series. These series continue until only one team remains in each conference. The two winners then advance to the NBA Finals Seven to compete against each other.

        National Football League

The American Football League is the first of the four major professional sports leagues in North America, the largest professional American football league in the world, and the most commercially valuable sports league in the world.

Founded in 1920, the NFL is the most popular professional sports league in the United States. It consists of 32 teams, divided into the NFC and AFC, that compete each year for the Super Bowl, the world's largest annual sporting event. The 16 teams in each conference are further subdivided into four four-teams, North, South, East, and West. Each division champion goes to the playoffs, along with two non-division champion wild cards. The playoffs consist of four rounds. The Super Bowl is the final round of the two divisional champions vying for the league title. The NFL is the richest professional sports league by revenue.


In the United States, the No. 1 sporting event is the NFL Football League, whose Finals has been the most watched TV program in the United States over the years, and has gradually evolved into an unofficial festival.

But looking at the global NBA, it has become the most watched event among the four major events. Maybe many people in China have heard or watched the NBA, but few people have watched other events.
