With the beginning of the Second World War, the national play enterprise came to an quick end after only one season. Not until 1947 was the second basketball championship decided.


The team holding the record for title championships is TSV Bayer 04 Leverkusen, who have won 14 championships. Since 1997, however, Alba Berlin has dominated the league, winning their 7th title in 2003 as a result.
