Watch now Live B.League Basketball League Streaming
Watch Japanese B League Live Streams and see the excitement of one of the hottest basketball leagues in Asia. Founded in 2015, the B.League was a result of a merger between the country’s two former basketball leagues: National Basketball League (handled by the FIBA-affiliated organization, Japan Basketball Association) and BJ League.
Basketball leagues in Japan were organized by the Japan Basketball Association since 1967 under different names. Most of the teams were from large corporations with their players under their employment instead of having professional players. It was in 2005 that the BJ League was established to compete with the Japan Super League and followed the American franchise system of professional teams.
With the two leagues growing, disorganization issues arose so the International Basketball Federation (FIBA), a governing body for basketball worldwide, set deadlines for the JBA to reorganize the domestic leagues. Failing to comply, Japan was suspended from joining international competitions in November 2014. It was in June 2015 that the merger was announced, and the suspension was lifted. The inaugural season started on September 22, 2016, with the first match between four-time JBL/NBL champions Alvark Tokyo and four-time BJ League champions Ryukyu Golden Kings.
