ABA-NBA Merger

In regards to Chapter 14, the only major merger for the National Basketball Association. Without the ABA-NBA merger, the NBA would not be what it is today. The NBA gained 4 new teams: the Denver Nuggets, the San Antonio Spurs, the Indiana Pacers, and what is known as the Brooklyn Nets.  It helped strengthened its hold on it being the worlds premiere basketball league in which it has succeeded in becoming today. They obtained the big markets that the ABA had and combined them with their teams and it has caused the league tremendous success. The NBA today has the biggest and brightest stars available for the world to see.
