bj league (Basketball Japan League), is a professional basketball league in Japan that began on November 5, 2005, with sponsors such as Spalding. The league is divided into two conferences, The Eastern Conference, and the Western Conference. It had its inaugural All-Star game in 2006.

The bj league operates on the American sports franchise system. Below the bj there is a Japan Basketball League, composed of company and otherwise-affiliated clubs, with promotion and relegation between its two divisions but not between bj and JBL-1. This organization is similar to the Rugby Super League in England and is also shown in the British Basketball League (which includes clubs from both England and Scotland).
