The NBAFinals is the championship series of the National Basketball Association, played under a best-of-seven playoff format.
As basketball is a major sport in the United States, the Final round has become a large-scale event on the sports calendar, with higher popularity than the concurrent Stanley Cup final in the National Hockey League.
During the 1940s and early 1950s decades, the NBAFinals were nothing but a minor highlight on the calendar.
Following the recent changes to the National Hockey League's scheduling format, the NBA is now the only major league in which all the teams play each other during the regular season, and where a season ticket holder can see every team in the league come to town in any one season.
The NBA Coach of the Year Award is awarded to either the best coach in the league or the coach that has made the most positive difference to a team.
The final playoff round, a best-of-seven series between the victors of both conferences, is known as the NBAFinals, held annually in June.
