  The past and present of Malaysian Basketball can be seen on Jalan Hang Jebat leading to the historical Merdeka Stadium. Here lies the two proudest achievements of the Malaysia Basketball Association (MABA), namely MABA House and MABA-DBKL Stadium. Fittingly, here is the home of Malaysian Basketball, its headquarters, a permanent training place for the national teams and also the residence of national players.

The renowned and quaint 12-story MABA House which took shape in May 1971, was the creation and dream of The Late Tan Sri Khaw Khai Boh, then the Minister of Housing & Development.

Today, MABA House is run by a team of full-time staff, provides a hostel for officials and players, houses office premises, the MABA Secretariat and Conference room. In early 1995, The Malaysia Basketball Association (MABA) finally saw their dream of having a stadium of their own come true. Built at a cost of RM13.5 million, the MABA-DBKL stadium as it is called, owes much to the foresight and leadership of MABA Presidents like Dato Chan Ah Chye and Dato Loke Yuen Yow. The stadium has facilities such as a world class basketball court, modern gymnasium, Chinese Restaurant, multi-story car park and a roof top training court.
