I have used the internet since 1999 and in those 8 years NBA.com has been one of the most visited websites I have been to. It all comes from that fact that I am a huge Los Angeles Lakers fan and During the October-April season and during playoffs, till late June. I am hooked on this site to find out the latest stats and news on my favourite Basketball league.
NBA.com is a very well laid out website and is very easy to use with all the information you will need about the current season including statistics from the season and the games from the night before. This includes a rundown of the highest scorers from the games the night before including in points, rebounds and assists catergories.
It also has a very detailed recap of the latest games including stats, video and comments from players and head coaches. The video content is fantastic with new highlights coming up nearly everday on the latest games and high flying dunks.
There are also hundreds and hundreds of NBA game photos that keep you in with the action on court. These range from High-flying dunks to blocks or rebounds. They can also show players celebrations after hitting the game winning shot and celebrating with their team-mates.
There is also a great shop stocked full of NBA products including all the teams jerseys and also Basketball shoes worn by the latest all stars like LeBron James, Dwayne Wade, Tracy McGrady and others. You can also but Dynasty DVD's from the likes of Boston Celtics and Los Angeles Lakers. These DVD's include footage of championship runs.
NBA League Pass is a relatively new thing that has come to the site in the last few years and it allows a subscriber to watch and listen to selected Live NBA games. There are about 10 games a week and this would be a great tool for someone living over here in England who is a huge fan like me. I'm looking to get a new computer soon and this would be a great thing to have when I upgrade. You need a fast computer mind.
It also has a great history section which tells you about the greatest players of the past, players like Michael Jordan, Scottie Pippen, Magic Johnson, Larry Bird, Kareem Abdul Jabaar, Jerry West, Charles Barkley and many more. It also has a section of NBA records which includes some of the best players from now like Kobe Bryant and LeBron James.
Another great thing about the site is they have people blogging on there about their thoughts on the NBA. these have included Flea from Red Hot Chili Peppers who is a huge Los Angeles Lakers fan just like me and also some players blog throughout the season on how they and their team are playing. Recently Gilbert Arenas cocked up when he said he would score 50 points against Portland Trail Blazers and ended up only scoring 9 points, (a season low).In a blowout loss.
If you are a big basketball fan then this is a great site for you, it has all the stuff you are likely to want to know about the current season and much much more. Even if you are a new fan to basketball this site will give you all the information you could want.
