THE LEAGUE
The American Basketball Association (ABA) is a men’s semiprofessional basketball league. The league has grown to become the largest professional sports league in the world, no other league even approaches the ABA as it relates to size. In 1999 Joe Newman and Richard P. Tinkham founded the league. It is the re-launch of the original ABA which merged with the NBA in 1976. Tinkham co-founded both the original ABA and the Indiana Pacers.
The current ABA bears no direct relation to the original American Basketball Association that merged with the National Basketball Association (NBA) in 1976. The present ABA bought the rights to the name from the NBA.The N.B.A., which owns the trademark to the A.B.A.,
