What is an NBA ID?

An NBA ID is a free account created with an email to receive access to personalized content based on your favorite players and teams, game and team highlights, email newsletters to keep you up to date on news, and the ability to purchase a League Pass subscription. With an NBA ID you can personalize the NBA App to include favorite team and player content.

NBA ID also grants you exclusive access to more of what you love about the league. When you sign in, you can instantly enjoy tons of benefits including:  

  • NBA partner discounts and early access to merch, event tickets, and more
  • Exclusive behind-the-scenes content of your favorite players and teams across devices
  • Voting on key league decisions, including unique player awards and 4x All-Star votes
  • Badges you can share across socials to show off your fandom

If you used to have an NBA Account, you can use those credentials to sign in!
