Hoop Magazine is the official magazine of the National Basketball Association. Publication began in 1971 and for many years Hoop was the de facto game program for many of the league's teams. This included the regular season, playoffs, and even the NBA Finals. More recently Hoop has become a standalone publication while many teams have returned to their own localized game programs.
