The 2014 NBA Finals matchup is set, but the National Basketball Association will turn its attention to its birthday for just a moment on Friday.

On June 6, which is the day after Game 1 of the Finals, the NBA will turn 68 years old. To pay tribute to its anniversary, the league will release 1,946 (which was the NBA's inaugural season) pairs of the commemorative sneakers.
