Paris Basket Racing, or PBR, was a French professional basketball club from Paris. It was founded in 1922, as the basketball section of the multi-sports club Racing Club de Paris. The team took the name "Paris Basket Racing" in 2000. In 2007, the club merged with another club from the Paris area, Levallois Sporting Club Basket, to form the current version of the club, called Levallois Metropolitans.

History[edit]

Paris Basket Racing won three consecutive French national championships, in the 1950–51, 1952–53, and 1953–54 seasons, plus a French Pro A title in the 1996–97 season.

In 2007, the club merged with another club from the Paris area, Levallois Sporting Club Basket, to form the club's newest incarnation, Paris-Levallois Basket. After the merger, Paris-Levallois Basket retained all of the history of both Paris Basket Racing and Levallois Sporting Club Basket. Paris-Levallois Basket was then renamed Levallois Metropolitans in 2017.
