Celebrating 34 years of existence.

Basketball has been shaped by the presence of great stars throughout its history, whose legacy transcends the courts and becomes an integral part of the cultural and social fabric of numerous countries. Figures like Michael Jordan, considered by many as the greatest player of all time, not only dominated the game with their exceptional talent but also elevated the popularity and global reach of basketball, turning it into a worldwide phenomenon. The impact of figures like Magic Johnson and Larry Bird in the 1980s goes beyond their technical skills; their rivalry ignited fans' passion and catapulted the NBA to new levels of viewership and recognition. Likewise, players like Kobe Bryant and LeBron James have continued this legacy, not only raising the standard of the game but also inspiring a new generation of players worldwide, demonstrating that basketball is a universal language that transcends cultural and linguistic barriers.
