NBA Teams by State

The National Basketball Association (NBA) is the world’s foremost basketball league. First established in 1946, the NBA has grown to the point where 14 million people watched the 2022 NBA Championship game and has grown from seventeen teams to thirty.

Out of the fifty states, only twenty-one and the District of Columbia has at least one NBA team. The state with the most NBA teams is California with four: Golden State Warriors, Los Angeles Clippers, Los Angeles Lakers, and Sacramento Kings. Texas follows closely behind with three teams (Dallas Mavericks, San Antonio Spurs, and Houston Rockets); Florida (Miami Heat and Orlando Magic) and New York (New York Knicks and Brooklyn Nets) both have two teams.
