From 1946 through 1949, the league was called the Basketball Association of America (BAA), in which the playoffs were a three-stage tournament where the two semifinal winners played against each other in the finals. The winning team of the series was to receive the Larry O’Brien Championship Trophy. The present format in the NBA Finals is 2–2–1–1–1. Previously it was a 2–3–2 format.
