At the NBA, we’re passionate about growing and celebrating the game of basketball. Through the intensity of the game and the amazing athletic skill of our players, we deliver excitement to hundreds of millions of fans around the world.

As a global sports and media business, the NBA is so much more. While Basketball Operations runs the league’s on-court activities, other departments manage relationships with television and digital media partners, develop marketing partnerships with some of the world’s most recognizable companies, oversee the licensing of NBA merchandise, and handle a wide range of responsibilities that drive the NBA’s success.

Off the court, we’re also deeply committed to social responsibility. NBA Cares leads the league’s involvement in addressing important social issues by working with internationally recognized youth-serving organizations that support education, youth and family development, and health-related causes.

Our Philosophy

At the NBA, we celebrate our common love of the game, building connections that enable us to leverage our differences. Basketball transcends all dimensions of diversity – those you can see, and those you can’t. It’s a game that anyone, anywhere, can participate in and follow. While our players, employees, and fans hail from every corner of the world, they come together through the common languages of sports and are united by their love of basketball.

Diversity and inclusion are central to our game, and we believe that they are catalysts for innovation. We know that our business is stronger when we leverage our differences to generate more and better ideas, sparking innovation that further connects us to our fans and our communities.

A Global Presence

Basketball is one of the most popular team sports, played by more than 450 million people worldwide. We embrace the true global nature of our game and our business. Our global presence includes offices in 13 markets around the world.


At the NBA, we believe that our physical, financial, and emotional well-being enables us to better fulfill Our Calling and we know that employment is a partnership: the better we equip employees to succeed in their careers and in their lives, the more energy and intensity they can bring to their day-to-day work.

Accordingly, we provide market-competitive health care, income protection, and retirement planning choices that are simple, affordable, and meet employees’ diverse needs. We’re also champions of wellness and preventative care to help employees stay fit and healthy.
