Later today, the Golden State Warriors will host the Cleveland Cavaliers in game one of the NBA Finals in Oakland. It's the fourth straight year the two teams have contested the championship, and anyone who watches basketball will be eager to see if LeBron James can pull off probably his greatest achievement yet and lead his team to victory against the odds. It's also the perfect time to release a new app related to the sport, and that's exactly what the NBA has just done. Read More
I'm told there is some sort of basketball tournament going on right now. To celebrate, Google has released an NBA sticker pack for Allo. You know, that chat app that Google really wants you to try out. Read More
I don't know much about baskets-the-ball - sorry fans, Cameron would probably write this article if he was still around. But I have to admit that the NBA has something interesting with InPlay, its latest official mobile app. InPlay automatically detects whatever game happens to be playing on TV in the background via the microphone, no matter what teams or which channel. But that's only the first cool part of the experience. Read More
Last year EA released a companion app for the NBA Live console game that let you stick your face on a basketball player. This year, forget the gimmicks. You get a full blown NBA Live experience to play on your touchscreen.
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. Read More
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.

Verizon has signed a sponsorship deal with the National Basketball Association. As part of this arrangement, the carrier's new Go90 video-streaming service will get access to live and original NBA content. Read More
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. Read More
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. Read More
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. Read More
