The first NBA was the New York Knickerbokers vs. the Toronto Huskies. In the first season, 1946-1947, of the NBA (called the BAA until the merger with the NBL in 1949) the top three teams from the Eastern and Western divisions were invited to the playoffs. The two division champions played a Semifinal best-of-seven series for entry into the finals. The other four teams played two rounds of best-of-three playoffs to face the winner of the Semifinal match. That year, the Philadelphia Warriors defeated the Chicago Stags 4 games to 1 in the first ever BAA Championship. The New York Knicks defeated the Toronto Huskies 68-66 in the very first NBA game on November 1, 1946. Any fan taller than Toronto center George Nostrand was granted free admission.

The first NBA Teams were the Philadelphia Warriors, the New York Knicks, and the Boston Celtics, who were the first 3 NBA Teams in 1946. However, the oldest team is the Detroit Pistons, founded in 1941, but did not join the NBA until until 1948.
