The Liga Portuguesa de Basquetebol (English: Portuguese Basketball League) is the top men's Federação Portuguesa de Basquetebol after 13 seasons. This was caused by the fold of the LCB, after many years of financial problems, with the league now being semi-professional.

Between the seasons 1965–66 and 1973–74 the league champions were determine by a tournament between the winners of the Campeonato Metropolitano (representing Portugal) and the champions of Portugal's then-colonies Mozambique and Angola, in similar fashion as the Portuguese Roller Hockey First Division was also played during those seasons. However the first of these tournaments never came to be due to a protest launched by the Mozambican team Sporting de Lourenço Marques.
