The Eastern Conference is one of two conferences that make up the National Basketball Association (NBA), the other being the Western Conference. Both conferences consist of 15 teams organized into three divisions.

The current divisional alignment was adopted at the start of the 2004–05 season, when the now Charlotte Hornets began play as the NBA's 30th franchise. This necessitated the move of the New Orleans Pelicans from the Eastern Conference's Central Division to the newly created Southwest Division of the Western Conference.

Starting with the 2021–22 season, the Eastern Conference champions would receive the Bob Cousy Trophy, named after Hall of Famer Bob Cousy, while the Eastern Conference Finals most valuable player would receive the Larry Bird Trophy, named after Hall of Famer Larry Bird.[1]
