The Philippine Basketball Association (PBA), is a men's professional basketball league in the Philippines composed of 10 company-branded franchised teams. It is the first and oldest professional basketball league in Asia and the second oldest in the world after the NBA. The league's regulations are a hybrid of rules from FIBA and the NBA.
Anyone who plays in the NBA, WNBA, or any other professional league across the world (Europe, Asia, etc.) is a professional. That adds up to far over 1000 people.
