    National Basketball League
    NBA Hoops Online has one of the most extensive collections of National Basketball League information on the web. The NBL was a precursor to the NBA, in 1949 it merged with the Basketball Association of American (BAA) to form the NBA. The NBA, however, does not consider this history to be part of its own, instead taking the history of the BAA, which has caused much of the NBL's history to be lost. Luckily we have pieced a lot of it back together.

    The best shooter in the NBA: stats and facts

    There are many skills that a top NBA player needs to master, but being a consistent, reliable shooter is one aspect that can guarantee them a spot in the starting line-up of any NBA side. Shooters now rule the game. Where it was once the big men in the paint who grabbed the headlines, now shooting is the most in-demand skill in the league.

    Traditionally, shooting has meant three-point attempts, though the wider definition of shooting can encompass any kind of shot from a reasonable distance. Still, three-point shots are still the gold standard when it comes to weighing up a shooter’s merit, and the number of three-pointers has increased steadily in recent years. San Antonio, Cleveland, and Golden State have all built their success on dead-eyed shooting from distance.

    Many of the upcoming games between the big names of the NBA, such as the Cleveland Cavaliers and the Toronto Raptors, have become spectacles for the shooting purists.

    Boston Celtics Have To Get Back On Track Against Washington

    The Boston Celtics headed into their game against the Toronto Raptors full of belief, especially as they had won their last 4 games. Since the 29th of January Celtics had beaten Denver, New York Knicks, Atlanta and Portland and they were looking to make it 5 when they came up against the Raptors, but they had other ideas as the team put the Celtics to the sword, winning the game 111-91. While the Raptors were dominant and showed some superb play both defensively and offensively, the Celtics surprisingly seemed to struggle to get up to their normal levels of performance.

    It just seemed like the Celtics failed to really get going in the game, even with Kyrie Irving returning to the fold after a three game absence due to a thigh injury. The Celtic’s have the best defense in the NBA but the Raptors, whose offence is ranked as the 4th best in the NBA, were moving the ball far too easily for most of the game. The Raptors’ defense is the third best in NBA and possibly underrated, but it held firm against what is a strong Celtics mid-pack attack, stifling it effectively.

    Will Deandre Jordan and Lou Williams remain in Lob City?

    The faucette is wide open and the NBA Trade Deadline is coming down the pipe!

    We’ve already seen some huge shake-ups, most notably the Blake trade. The Los Angeles Clippers showed that they might just go into full-on rebuild mode when they shipped their franchise star over to the Motor City for a 2018 first-round pick, Avery Bradley, Boban Marjanovic, and Tobias Harris.

    Breaking Down the Griffin Trade

    The long-time Celtic, short-term Piston, Bradley is averaging just under 32 minutes, 15 points, 2 rebounds, and 2 assists per game. At 27, he is still in his prime and will be a reliable scorer -averaging 15 points or more for the last three seasons. As for Marjanovic, I don’t see a whole lot of value in either the short-term or long-run for the Clippers organization other than a fairly low-cost backup big-man to play a few minutes per game.

    A Guide to Betting on Basketball

    Basketball is a fast-paced, end-to-end, high scoring game. It makes for entertaining viewing, and lends itself well to betting, too. The NBA is, by far, the most popular choice for basketball betting, though you can also find plenty of markets for the NCAA, too. There are many options available when it comes to placing your bets and making the right choices potentially mean the difference between profit and loss. Let’s explore.

    Can you make a profit?
    Most people bet basketball for fun. They already watch the game, support a specific team and they want to make the game even more exciting. Some even people try to make a profit by placing the right bets in the long term.

    To understand whether it is possible to play for profit, let’s compare basketball betting to playing online roulette in the USA. With games like roulette and most casino games for that matter, the odds are predetermined and built into the game. A roulette wheel always pays out 36-1, and the house takes a small edge due to the green zero spaces (an edge of 2.6 percent for European roulette, and 5.2 percent for American).

    Injuries having an affect on the 17-18 NBA Season

    Few factors affect the game of basketball more then injuries. Injuries can make a favorite to win the NBA title fall to the lottery, and had a role in nearly every single NBA season to date and this year is going to be no different.

    The 2017-18 NBA season was barely 5 minutes old when the first major injury changed the season. With 7 minutes to go in their game against the Cleveland Cavaliers, the Boston Celtics high profile free agent All-star signing Gordon Hayward went down for the season with a broken leg. In the game following that game the Houston Rockets lost their high profile off-season acquisition Chris Paul to an injury.

    The Rockets eventually got Paul back, but the Celtics will lose Hayward for the season. Though both teams seem to have weathered the storm of losing an all-star, but mostly because both teams have the depth to cover their absence, not every team is so lucky. The Utah Jazz, Hayward's old team, lost All-NBA center Rudy Gobert and have since been in a tailspin.

    Smaller nagging injuries also affect the game and they can be harder to spot. For example, several members of the Cleveland Cavaliers where nursing injuries through-out the playoffs last season and this several y impacted their performance against the Golden State Warriors in the NBA finals.

    Top 10 Greatest NBA Players of All Time

    Being great at what you do is one thing, but there’s a whole different set of criteria for those who earn their place in history books. The Association has had no shortage of outstanding talents throughout the years, but those few who have managed to show durability, game intelligence, strategic skills and pure talent are sure to stand out. The issue of selecting the crème de la crème among NBA ranks has sparked arguments among many fans. In this regard, based on criteria similar to those above, following is an objective ranking of the all-time greatest.

    Leo Ferris: The man who saved the NBA

    The early days of basketball often seen slow fan-unfriendly low scoring matches that often left spectators bored. Games often only got into the 40s and many of the best players averaged less than 15 points a game. Many early basketball games looked more like a glorified version of the childrens game of keep-away than an action packed professional sport. This style of play culminated in a game between Minneapolis and Fort Wayne, where the Pistons of Fort Wayne held the ball most of the second half nursing a 1 point lead over the Lakers. The Pistons would win 19-18 in the lowest scoring game in NBA history. Prior to that the fewest points ever score 33 points, just 4 fewer than both teams scored, and that game was one the opening night of the NBA, or BAA as it was called back then.

    This place pace bored fans, many of whom where promised an action packed fun experience and attendance and interest in the new league had begun to dip. The NBA needed a solution and needed it fast. The solution was an ingenious one and one that would revolutionize the game as we know it. A simple clock, with just 24 seconds on it would forever change the game.

    The clock was the brain child of Syracuse Nationals general manager Leo Ferris, a man that the NBA has long forgotten in one of the biggest travesties in the games history. Ferris, is as important to the early days of the NBA as anyone and one could argue that without Ferris there would be no NBA today; and there definitely would be no Atlanta Hawks, or Philadelphia 76ers. The NBA would look much different today without Ferris's input all those years ago.

    History of point shaving in basketball

    Point shaving is arguably the biggest cardinal sin in the basketball world. While there has been several cases of it involving college basketball, the NBA has had relatively few incidents of point shaving, that is not to say that the scandals have not affected the NBA, quite the contrary. Of the four major leagues in the US the NBA has been the most ardent opponent of betting on games, especially during its early years. The league has soften its stance in later years, but is still waging a fight against the state of New Jersey over online betting.

    Point shaving is when a bookie or better convinces a player or official to help a favored team not make the spread. For example, if a team is favored to win by 10 points, the player or players involved make sure that the team wins by fewer than 10 points. This is accomplished by intentionally missing shots, committing turnovers or fouls, or in the case of a corrupt official making bad calls.

    Basketball is an extremely easy sport to manipulate because of the tempo of the game and the affect just one player can have on the game. The NCAA is much more susceptible to point shaving than the NBA because of the NCAA's strict emphasis on amateurism. NCAA players do not make any money and are often struggling college students, while the NBA players are making millions of dollars. It is much easier for a bookie to convince a poor college student to miss a few shots for a few hundred dollars than it is to convince a millionaire NBA player to do the same thing.

    Connie Hawkins fight against the NBA

    On October sixth, the NBA lost one of the great pioneers in league history. Connie Hawkins was a four time NBA all-star and former ABA MVP, who's legal battle with the ABA and NBA helped change the landscape of professional basketball.

    Few athletes in American history have ever been as victimized by the system as Hawkins was. In 1961, while Hawkins was a freshman at Iowa and ineligible to play on the Hawkeyes varsity team due to NCAA regulations at the time, a humongous college betting scandal erupted and Hawkins was kicked out of school.

    The scandal involved 22 different schools and 37 players, but Hawkins was not implicated. The scandal mostly focused on players associated with Jack Molinas, who had escaped the CCNY betting scandal a decade and a half earlier. Hawkins, growing up in New York City, knew many of the players involved and had borrowed $2,000 for school expenses from Jack Molinas, but Hawkins brother had paid Molinas back before the scandal erupted.

    Oklahoma City's Big 3

    The 2016 off-season for the Oklahoma City Thunder started out quite possibly the worst way imaginable; they lost their MVP superstar Kevin Durant. But oh, what a difference a year makes. The 2017 Thunder off-season was arguably the greatest in NBA history.

    First, days before free agency started the Thunder landed Paul George from the Indiana Pacers, and as the off-season drew to a close they managed to swing another blockbuster trade and land Carmelo Anthony from the New York Knicks. In between that, the Thunder also managed to add a lot of depth to an already established playoff team.

    The price for landing Paul George was an extremely small one by NBA standards. The four-time all-star costs the Thunder only 2nd year Domantas Sabonis and veteran Victor Oladipo. Both Sabonis and Oladipo where valuable contributors but neither of them will produce what George can.

    Adidas NCAA Scandal

    There are very few things you can always bet will happen during college basketball. That an underdog will stun a powerhouse in the tourney; that student fans will take wins and losses harder than the athletes themselves; and that the game will be rocked by scandal every few years.

    Once again, sadly, it's scandal time for college basketball and this one has already cost one of the greatest coaches in the game his career and likely a chance for the hall-of-fame, and it appears that this is just the tip of the iceberg.

    In a few short hours the FBI did something that the NCAA never could do in decades of existence, reign in all the rouge elements of college basketball.

    History of the Westward Expansion of Basketball

    Basketball's early roots on the east coast are well document, from that cold December day in Springfield, Massachusetts in 1891 when the game first formed to the present, we know the stories, the players and the histories. What is less known is how the game developed out west. While at the time of basketball's founding the east was pretty much an established mega-industrial center catering to the worlds needs. The west, it was still wild and untamed.

    When James Naismith invented basketball in 1891 the United States states had just 44 states and Wyoming and Idaho had just joined the Union. Three states that would join the union after the founding of basketball, Utah, Oklahoma and Arizona, now contain NBA teams. The battle of Wounded Knee, the last great battle between the United States Army and the Native American's had happened just shy of a year before the game of basketball was invented. And the infamous gun fight at the OK Corral had happened just a decade before. In fact, the early days of basketball are closer in time to the French Revolution than they are to today.

    It is easy to see why basketball's roots began in the east and why it has stuck and become such an integral part of the urban landscape. The east had the infrastructure and had young men with free time to play the game and form leagues. In contrast, the west lacked the roads, rails, and metropolitan areas to give rise to the infrastructure that is required to play basketball.

    The Collapse of the PBLA and the end of multi-league basketball in America

    Following World War II many Americans were looking for some sort of entertainment outlet, and sports quickly became one of the most popular outlets. Basketball was still in its infancy but would soon see epic growth as war weary Americans needed more and more entertainment outlets.

    In 1946 there were three major American basketball leagues in the US. The oldest, the ABL had been around in some from since the 1920s but had spotty attendance and fans and players alike had a hard time figuring out what teams were actually in the league. The newest of the leagues was the BAA, which had just formed an 11 team league on the eastern seaboard with a couple of teams as far west as Chicago and Detroit. The most successful of the leagues was the NBL, which was entering its 11th season and had the best players in the world.

    The NBL and ABL had little direct competition as the ABL stuck around mostly New York City, Philadelphia and Washington and the NBL was primarily focused in Ohio, Indiana and the Great Lakes regions. The inclusion of a third league which directly competed with both leagues worried both leagues ownerships and started to bring about instability to both leagues.

    The Bad Attitude Choke Artists of Chicago

    The 1970s were a difficult time for the NBA and for America in general. The Bill Russell lead Celtics dynasty which had dominated the 1960s had come and gone. Wilt Chamberlain was a shell of the man who once scored 100 points in a game. Cocaine and drug abuse was a serious problem in the league. The Summer of Love had descended into Helter Skelter. The US had ended its involvement in Vietnam The people did not trust their own government because of the Watergate scandal. Than there was the circus sideshow known as the Chicago Bulls.

    Even with the difficulties of the era the Bulls had seen some success on the court. The team made the playoffs eight times in their first decade and had even made a few serious deep playoff runs. But the Bulls still struggled to bring in the big bucks, despite playing in the third largest market in the US. Fans in Chicago would rather watch the Bears in the fall and winter and the Cubs and Whitesox in the spring. This forced the Bulls to get creative with their ways to get fans in the seats.

    Pat Williams is widely considered to be one of the best general managers the NBA has ever seen, he has rebuilt team after team after team, but in the early 1970s he was just starting out in the NBA and had the unfortunate task of saving the Chicago Bulls.

    History of early professional basketball in Indiana

    Before the Indiana Pacers joined the ABA and eventually the NBA, the state of Indiana was the hot bed of professional basketball. From 1935 until 1953 the state hosted no less than 11 different teams in the major professional basketball leagues. Unfortunately, almost all of them would end and leave the state with no professional basketball teams for nearly two decades.

    Indiana is synonymy with the game of basketball. The University of Indiana is one of the most storied programs in all of college basketball winning 5 NCAA titles, but it was Purdue who would bring the state its first NCAA basketball title in 1932.

    Through out the early years of basketball a lot of fly by night leagues and teams called Indiana home, in fact Indiana even had its own semi-pro league of teams completely made up of teams in the Indianapolis region. It was not until 1935 when the Midwest Basketball Conference formed did the state of Indiana start seeing regular professional basketball at the highest levels and quality

    Wat Misaka broke the color barrier years before Jackie Robinson

    he was the first non-Caucasian to ever play in the NBA, or as it was known at that time the BAA or Basketball Association of America. Watura Misaka, the second generation son of Japanese immigrants, grew up on Ogden's 25th street in the back of a barber shop and would often find him and his family the victim of rampant racial discrimination. Yet despite this Misaka was able to find a love of basketball and was allowed on the Ogden High Schools basketball team, where in 1940 he lead them to the state title.

    In 1942 he began attending college at Weber College, which is now Weber State University. This was a dangerous time to be Japanese-American as president Roosevelt had recently signed Executive Order 9066 which required that Japanese-American's in the western United State be placed into interment camps. It remains one of the darkest chapters in American history and one of, if not the most, egregious violation of Human and Civil Rights in the 20th century.

    Misaka was allowed to get an exemption to continue his studies at Weber and play basketball. He only played two seasons at Weber College but would lead the Wildcats to the Junior College championship both season.

    The Merger that formed the NBA: How and why it happened

    When the Basketball Association of America (BAA) merged with the National Basketball League (NBL) in 1949 it was the culmination of two great basketball leagues that would give us one final and polished product; the National Basketball Association (NBA). A league, that in 1949, looked much different that the product we see today. Today we have 30 teams nestled in mega arenas in 28 cities across the United States and Canada and income in the Billions of dollars.

    The 17 team league would be a mixture of big east coast cities, small Midwest farming communities, and one lone enclave in the Rocky Mountains. From the start problems started to arise with the disparity between the former NBL teams and the BAA teams. One of the biggest was income disparity as the BAA teams had a lot more money than did the NBL teams, the one thing that the NBL teams did have an advantage over the BAA is that the NBL tended to have the bigger stars.

    One of the major factors in the merging of the two leagues was that the BAA, after three years of existence, was finally able to start not only plucking the top stars away from the NBL but also the NBL's top teams as well. Two seasons after its existence in 1947, the BAA was able to lure the Minneapolis Lakers away from the NBL along with the Rochester Royals, Fort Wayne Pistons and Indianapolis Jets.

    Adding the Lakers to the BAA gave them the games biggest star in George Mikan

    Bruce Jenner's brief NBA career

    The 1970s were a interesting decade for America and for sports in particular. The decade saw the US withdraw from Vietnam and seen the presidency mired in the biggest scandal in American history; Watergate. It saw the Superbowl rise to dominance lead by the dominant teams of the era, the Steelers and Cowboys and it seen the Miami Dolphins deliver the only perfect season. In the basketball world it seen the NBA go head-to-head with the dazzling ABA only to see the larger NBA eat the ABA and take four of its teams.

    It was also an era in the NBA when the annual NBA draft was like that annoying song from the children's show Lambchop; it would go on and on and on..... But looking at the seemingly endless list of picks and one can find some funny and interesting picks. The Chicago Bulls would draft runner Carl Lewis in 1984, the same year they drafted a guy named Michael Jordan. The New Orleans Jazz drafted a woman named Lusia Harris. The Boston Celtics drafted a water boy and the Lakers tried drafting both Scooby Doo and a chair but both picks were rejected by the league. But one of the most interesting publicity stunt picks, mostly because he may have actually been able to play in the NBA, was the Kansas City Kings 7th round pick Bruce Jenner.

    The NBA Ghost Team: Utah Rockies

    One of the great anomalies and interesting facts of the NBA revolves around a team that is not even in the NBA, but yet receives a portion of the NBA revenue. It is the rumored ghost franchise of the NBA, also known as the Utah Rockies or Spirits of Saint Louis.

    Even some of the most die hard fans have never heard of this franchise and that is because they have never played a game in the NBA. Ever. The Spirits are a semblance of the NBA's old rival, the American Basketball Association. But unlike teams like the San Antonio Spurs, Denver Nuggets, Indiana Pacers and New York Nets; the Rockies/Spirits never joined the NBA, nor did they disband like the Virginia Squires, Kentucky Colonels or San Diego Conquistadors. Instead they got one the good side of one of the best business deals of the 20th century, and deal that is still making its benefactors a fortune today.

    Forrest "Phog" Allen: The Father of Basketball coaching

    Most people know the origins of basketball; how in the winter of 1891 James Naismith invented the game to keep students active in the winter. But what most people do not know is how coaching the game of basketball got started. In the early days of basketball most teams did not have a coach as there was very little strategy to the game - most players relied on their athletic prowess rather than their brains to score. Even the games inventor, James Naismith, did not believe that basketball needed coaching. In his word you "Just play the game". But as the game got more popular players started figuring out how to manipulate the outcome of the game by doing things to prevent the other team from scoring; such as zone defenses.

    There were many early attempts at coaching in basketball, even the games inventor was coaching, but the most impactful early coaching advocate was Forrest "Phog" Allen. Allen was a multi-sport star athlete - who was mentored by Naismith at the University of Kansas. After graduating from Kansas, Allen took a few years off of basketball to become a doctor

    Top 10 PF in NBA history

    The best Power Forward of all time… there are many great candidates from many different eras and they way to judge would be so hard, you could go on individual success (stats awards etc.) players like Karl Malone and or you could do it on winning and success of the team they were in, then the top of that list become McHale, Tim Duncan and Dennis Rodman all of whom have been very successful, however I have made my list of the top few PFs on a mixture of both success in stats and success in play offs and regular season. The other problem is distinguishing a PF from the C because of the lack of height many of the larger forwards ended up playing center.

    NO.10 Dirk Nowitzki,
    Dirk is one of the better shooters of all time, his name is often compared to greats like Larry Bird and Kevin McHale. Dirk over his career he has averages of 22.4 points a game, along with 8.6 rebounds and 2.7 assists a game defensively he averages just less than a steal and one block a game. Dirk shots efficiently with 47 percent from the field and 38% from beyond the arch he is also a very successful line shooter, at 87% from the line (he has his routine in which he hums whilst taking his shot) Dirk has won an MVP, and in the same season(06-07) his Dallas mavericks won 67 games, He has been selected to seven All Star teams, and he has been selected to eight All-NBA teams, with three of them as a first-team member. He is also the first and only player from Europe to win an MVP. His style is more of finesse than brute and strength you seem him do some really good mid range jumpers do open up his inside game, as many bigger men struggle with guarding a player with his permitter abilities.

    NO.9 Dave Debusschere
    Dave was one of the first super Power forwards nicknames “D” and “BIG D” which stood for defence, he was an amazing player with unreal hustle and determination definitely in his times top handful of defenders. In 1996 he was recognised at being in the top 50 players of all time and is unlucky not to be higher on this list. Everyone who ever came up against would leave bruised, he is one of the most physical players of all time. He was never afraid of trading elbows and really fighting for a rebound or lose ball. He was also known for his Amazing Defensive skills, which helped earn his nicknames, he made the All Defensive 1st team 6 times. In his career he averaged a solid 16.1 points and 11 rebounds a game as well as getting 3 assists and shooting 43.2% from the field. A player like him in more recent times was Dennis Rodman, however Dennis didn’t have nearly the same offensive game as Dave. His style of play almost the opposite of Dirk’s as Dave would power it home more often.
