The LNB (Ligue Nationale de Basketball) is the top men's French professional basketball league. There are two divisions: French Pro A League (first division) and French Pro B League (second division).

Pro AEdit

All 18 Pro A division teams play each other twice during the regular season. At the end of the regular season, the top eight teams qualify for the playoffs. The two teams with the worst regular season records are relegated to Pro B. Starting in 2006–07, all rounds except for the finals are best-of-three series[1] (previously, they had been two-legged); the final is a single game played at the Palais Omnisports de Paris-Bercy in Paris.

The quarterfinals and the semifinals are two-legged and the final is a single game.
