NBA Live for Android has been undergoing geo-limited testing for quite the while now, with millions of people having already downloaded the title. Now it's openly available on Google Play.

Waze Adds A Shaquille O'Neal Navigation Voice Option To Celebrate The NBA Playoffs

In the Venn diagram of mobile users, the circle marked "rabid Shaq fans" and the one marked "active Waze users" must have a pretty tiny crossover section. But if you do happen to use Waze on a regular basis and you have the special extended DVD edition of both Kazaam and Steel boldly displayed on your shelf, today is your day. Waze has announced that the company is celebrating the start of the NBA Playoffs later this week by adding official Shaquille O'Neal voice narration to the map app's navigation service.

TuneIn Radio Adds Play-By-Play NBA Audio Starting With The 2016-2017 Season For Premium Subscribers In The US

 

You know what sucks? Not watching basketball. I absolutely hate when I have something else going on while the Bulls are playing and I don't get to watch the game. Being able to listen to the game makes that a little easier to tolerate, which I currently do from the official NBA app if that's the only option. If you're a TuneIn Radio Premium subscriber and an NBA fan, though, things just got a bit easier for you: TuneIn has reached a deal with the NBA that will allow it to stream all game audio from the app starting globally with the 2016-2017 season.

NBA GameTime App Completely Redesigned For The 2015-2016 Season, Finally Gets Chromecast Support

For basketball fans, tonight marks the start of the most exciting time of year: the beginning of the 2015-2016 season. Just like the start of every season, there are new players to look forward to seeing, old players on new teams, new coaches, new player dynamics, and so much more. I know I'm stoked — can't wait to see what my Bulls do this year under new leadership.

But I digress, this isn't about the Bulls. This is about the league as a whole, because the NBA just updated the GameTime app for the 15-16 season, and it's completely different. One may even argue that it actually makes sense now.

2K Games Packs More Cards And Gameplay Enhancements Into This Year's MyNBA2K16 Companion App

I am many years removed from middle and high school, but in the adult world at least, it seems now is a much safer time to be a card collecting geek. But undoubtedly there are still guys who are too intimidated to spend their time playing Netrunner or Yu-Gi-Oh. Instead, they cloak their collector's impulse and stat obsession in a thin layer of NBA fandom. They get their card-battling fix from the MyNBA2K companion app 2K Games releases every twelve months.

MyNBA2K16 has gone live in the Play Store, and this year's addition brings new cards to collect, more ways to customize them, specialty bonuses, and other tweaks that enhance the core mechanic.

NBA Releases Standalone All-Star App, Aims To Help Attendees Make The Best Of The Experience

As any basketball fan knows, NBA All-Star Weekend is coming up later this month. We're going to watch The Splash Brothers - Klay Thompson and Stephen Curry - duke it out as opponents in the three-point competition (along with Kyle Korver), see who has the best skills at the rim in the Sprite Slam Dunk Competition, and of course watch the best players the NBA has to offer* go head-to-head in an East vs. West match up. I love All-Star weekend.

To gear up for the big event, the NBA recently launched a standalone app for the All-Star game. It's mostly geared towards the lucky ones who will actually be at the game, but there's also news and other info for the rest of us who have to sit home and watch it on TV.

2K Games Repeats The Card-Battle Companion App Formula With MyNBA2K15

Another year, another companion app to another installment in an annual sports series. This time we're taking a look at NBA 2K15. No, it's not 2015 yet, but this is a sports thing. As in this will presumably be what you're using throughout most of next year, since it's coming out at the end of this one. I know most of you are rolling your eyes right now, but there is surely one person reading this who was confused, and I'm looking them straight in the eyes right now.

Anyways, MyNBA2K15 is the companion app to the full console game. Just like last year's entry, it continues to shake things up with a basketball-themed card battle system.

EA's NBA Jam Updated With Google Play Games Support For Online Multiplayer, Leaderboards, And Achievements

Listen, EA, you're one of the biggest video game publishers in the world. It's not my place to tell you what to do, and far be it from me to say that you have to support Android's standard online and social gaming featureset in your games. But it would probably be a good idea. Case in point: the over-the-top basketball game NBA Jam. The title just got updated with Google Play Games support.

unnamed

To be fair, the game came out way, way back in early 2012, more than a year before the Google Play Games system was implemented. But that still means that NBA Jam has been sitting on the Play Store for a year without Play Games.
