History

From 6 teams in 2006, to 82 teams in 2009, Superstar Basketball has raised the bar on how adult rec leagues should operate. The first league to host a podcast in 2008 and the first basketball league to livestream, Superstar Basketball has been impactful on the basketball community as it continues to host their All Star Game at Crypto.com Arena.

2006 - THE BEGINNING

Superstar Basketball started in July 2006 with 6 teams starting the initial season in Nogales High School, later playing in Anaheim at American Sports Center. The league began with a website, a newsletter, an All Star Game and an All Star 3-pt Contest with Foundation winning their 1st Championship in Season 1.

2008 - the golden season

Summer 2008 will forever be known as Superstar Basketball's best season in the old era. 71 teams competed on Sunday in Anaheim, Walnut, and San Diego (Saturday League) with premier basketball talent. Semi Pro Inc vs. Wildcats attracted a standing only crowd at Walnut Gym with hip hop artist, The Game, and USC stand-out, Jeff Trepagnier, competing for Semi Pro Inc against NBA-talent Tracy Murray, Lamond Murray and Cameron Murray.

Superstar Basketball featured previews, recaps, a weekly podcast with MySpace hosting several trash talk and news updates from the league.

2019 - the youtube era

Superstar Basketball began its Livestream at Workman High School in 2018 and the league brought back several "legends" from the previous era, notably Relics, a team with the winningest record and most Championships with 20. An unknown Ryan Carter developed his nickname, "The Hezi God", and his weekly highlights and record-setting season made him a social media star as Superstar Basketball hosted their 1st All Star Game at Staples Center.

2020 - PANDEMIC PROOF

With Corona virus taking a toll on the world, the league found a way to host their leagues in a quiet private gym in Walnut. "The Covid Seasons" doubled the amount of teams playing in the league with 57 teams playing in Season 48 at Baldwin Park High School.

Finally taking a break, Superstar Basketball announced that it will be playing just one season a year starting in Season 49 in West Covina on November 6 as the LA Clippers continue to host Superstar Basketball All Star Games at Crypto.com Arena.
