The NBA is the most famous - and certainly the most glamourous - basketball league anywhere in the world. As such StanJames.com offers extensive basketball betting on all NBA games.
Thanks to the enduring appeal of basketball's most famous stars, such as present-day players LeBron James and spanish star Pau Gasol, and the likes of Larry Bird and Magic Johnson from yesteryear, the NBA (National Basketball Association) retains its place as the league every basketball player the world over wants to play in.
One team has dominated the NBA in recent times. The LA Lakers have been NBA Champions five times since 2000, and they have appeared in the final on a further two occasions. Their latest NBA Finals success came in 2010 at the expense of the Boston Celtics, the Lakers winning the seven-game series 4-3. Outright NBA betting for the 2010/11 season is available now.
The LA Lakers had usurped the Chicago Bulls as the dominant team in the NBA. The Bulls bossed basketball in North America in the 1990's thanks in no small part to the contribution of basketball legend Michael Jordan. Jordan was voted the Most Valuable Player (MVP) in the NBA on five seperate occasions. No other player in the history of the NBA has been voted MVP as many times, with the notable exception of Kareem Abdul-Jabbar in the 1970's.
