    There are lots of different organizations that carry this abbreviation.  The most popular, however, and the one who holds the rights to the website NBA.com, is the National Basketball Association.

    The National Basketball Association (NBA) is the premier professional men's basketball league in North America.  The NBA has 30 teams (29 in the United States, 1 in Canada).  Players in the NBA are considered by Americans (and some other peoples) as the greatest men to play basketball in the world.  Most NBA players begin their career when they are drafted from American colleges and universities where they generally star in their collegiate men's basketball program.  After they are drafted, they sign a contract with the team that drafted them for an incredible amount of money.  The average NBA player makes approximately $7,700,000 per year... with its highest-paid player - Steph Curry, of the Golden State Warriors, making $40,200,000 per year.

    Other less notable organizations with this abbreviation are:

    -National Bar Association (United States)

    -National Braille Association (United States)

    -North British Academy of Arts (United Kingdom)

    -News Broadcasters Association (India)

    -National Biodiversity Authority (India)

    -National Board of Accreditation (India)

    However, most of these organizations are addressed by their full names and not abbreviated, because the abbreviation NBA has become axiomatically associated with the National Basketball Association.
