The 2003-2004 ABA season is the third full season of the American Basketball Association and the first full season since the league took the year off in the 2002-2003 season for reorganization. The league started-off the season with seven teams, two of them from Mexico. Of the seven teams that competed in the 2001-2002 season, only the Kansas City Knights would return to play.

The season started in November 2003 and ended in March 2004 with the Long Beach Jam beating the Kansas City Knights in the finals to win their first ABA title.


  • The Long Beach Jam was given a bye to the final round due to their 24-7 season record. The Jam would later leave the league for the NBA D-League, where it currently plays as the Bakersfield Jam.
