The growth of Japanese basketball does not appear to be in danger of slowing down any time soon, according to financial data released by the B. League on Monday.
The league revealed that Japanese basketball generated ¥30.8 billion ($283 million) in revenue over the course of the 2018-19 season.
The figure includes the combined revenues of the Japan Basketball Association, the B. League and B. League clubs. The sum represents nearly three times the ¥10.5 billion ($96.5 million) generated in the 2015-16 campaign, which marked the conclusion of the National Basketball League and bj-league.
