The 2005–06 CBA season is the 11th CBA season.[1]

The season ran from November 20, 2005 to April 19, 2006. Dongguan Leopards joined CBA in this season and was divided into the South Division. The name of the league in Chinese is no longer the "Jia A" league (男子篮球甲A联赛) but the "professional league" (中国男子篮球职业联赛).[1]

In the Regular Season, the eight South Division teams played 42 games each and the seven North Division teams played 40 games each. The Divisional Championships established in the previous season were abolished.[1]

The all-star game was played on March 18, 2006 in Shanghai, after the end of the regular season and before the beginning of the playoffs: the South Division defeated the North Division 93-90. Also, all-star games were played against the KBL, on January 22, 2006 in Korea and January 24, 2006 in Jiyuan, Henan, China. Korea won the first game 96-86; China won the second game 104-85.[2]
