About This Quiz
The NBA was officially founded way back in 1946 as the Basketball Association of America. When it merged with the National Basketball League, the name changed to the National Basketball Association in 1949. From then on the league has consistently grown and expanded to the monster of sports and entertainment it is today. These days over 15 million people will watch the NBA finals, proving the game is pretty huge overall.
Whether you just like to watch from the couch or you head down to see the games in person, whether you can sink a three-pointer from the half or whether you've never touched a basketball in your life, it's time to find out where you belong. Each team in the league has its own flair and its own legacy and history. Whether we're talking about how dominant the Lakers can be on the court or the amazing legacy of the Celtics in Boston, there's a lot of great gameplay, stellar coaching and impressive history in the NBA that has to in some way reflect who you are and how you'd fit into the game. Whether you dominate on offense or hold off the onslaught on the defense, take the quiz and let's see what team you're meant to play for.
