The Baloncesto Superior Nacional or BSN (lit. "National Superior Basketball") is the main Puerto Rican men's basketball league. It currently has 11 teams, but has had many teams in several cities of the island. The league was established in 1932. It has produced players that have distinguished themselves in the NBA, European Leagues, and other leagues.

For the 2009 season, each team will play 30 games in a single table format. The regular season is followed by a round robin with the best 8 teams divided in two groups based on regular season standings (1,8,4,5 and 2,7,3,6). The teams play against each other, then the best four teams compete in a semi-final series playing for the best of seven games. The season concludes with the finals, here two teams compete in the best of seven games.

The Vaqueros de Bayamón are the current leaders in all time championships with fourteen. The Atléticos de San Germán have thirteen, and the Leones de Ponce have twelve.
