NBA Quiz

If the US could boil down to one thing, it would definitely be basketball, and what’s a better representation of this glorious sport than the famous (and, paradoxically, infamous) NBA?

I mean, sure, the NFL still reigns supreme in terms of popularity, which is mainly due to its short regular season and the Super Bowl, but the NBA is the undoubted king of cool when it comes to professional sport in North America.

If you’re a fan of the NBA and frequent watcher of its games, then you’re in the right place, as you’ll be able to prove your love once and for all by taking this NBA quiz!

That said, before getting to the NBA quiz, let’s go on a short walk down memory lane to explore the history of the NBA and what makes it so popular!

What Makes the NBA So Cool?

Well, it definitely starts with the players. The NBA had its golden age right before the nineties, when it was home to great athletes, from Magic and Kareem on the West Coast to Bill Russel and Karry Bird on the East. Granted, the NBA has never lacked star power, but it was at that period of time that it had the highest concentration of elite talent.

Now, add that to the increasingly available TV broadcasts, predated ticket inflation, and a bit of luck, and you’ll understand why the NBA really took off back then. In a nutshell, the NBA’s Golden Age was ready for mass consumption, which helped the Association get so popular.

The players’ role goes far beyond being good at what they do on court, though, as their influence extends beyond the hardwood. NBA players are more than athletes; they’re also socialites, making them bona fide personalities to whom the public can relate. Fans basically see (most) NBA players as normal folks that they might even befriend someday.

Speaking of great players, one of the legends of the NBA, Kobe Bryant, has recently left us, and because I was a big fan of him, I wanted to include this quote that summarizes my emotions towards him:

“Carve your name on hearts, not tombstones. A legacy is etched into the minds of others and the stories they share about you.”

― Shannon Alder

All of that, along with other factors such as the NBA’s contributions to pop culture and street wear, makes the NBA an increasingly popular association and explains why it reigns supreme in terms of coolness in North America.
