I really don’t like how you can’t only subscribe to the radio broadcasts, I would use those for 7.99 but now the cheapest league pass is 119.99 annually. Disappointed.

Don't waste your time with this app. Has to constantly be updated but then again thank apple for that. Takes for ever to load even after an update. I have perfect connection and still says no connection.

Awful. Just Awful.  I don't like pies  1 star

Guys, if you want to watch live games on your phone; good luck. League Pass is trash and the app sometimes doesn't even work properly. When you put the correct password and email it says "error". I suggest watching games on your computer or TV or maybe even Safari.


Way too many notifications  jaquiring  1 star

The app started out just ok (maybe 3 stars), but recently started giving a ridiculous amount of notifications for my favorite teams. This morning it started giving the same update every minute, and I finally had to turn off notifications.


Still a Disappointment  Alex5555555  1 star

I find it hard to believe that there are no year-by-year career stats on player pages. Also the UI is still a mess to look at with the unoptimized advertisements wasting screen space on the sides when looking at box scores.


Can’t sign in, can’t restore purchases  king_of_akron  1 star

What gives? I can’t even sign into this app, and restore purchases doesn’t work. Completely broken.


It's meh, could be so much better  AnomaKLIE  2 star

I like being able to get scores and see video recaps. But your stats section is horrible. Right now can only see last year playoff stats. Can't change to last regular season or go back to any previous seasons. Can't click on an individual player from these lists and can't even see yr to yr stats when you do go to a player from the "players" section. In short it's not very good. I mean what are you doing here not even trying? This is your league app. Learn from the MLB app and maybe you'll have a good app


Casting  yo_aadriannn  1 star

Cannot cast the games to my smart tv. It keeps loading. Please update the app!!!!!


Going to get a refund.  Keastland  1 star

Subscribed to watch one team and have yet to be able to watch a single game on laptop. Contacted League Pass support several times and each time after trying to resolve issue for over a half an hour, they come back and say "oh, I just found out there's a known issue with that game." Sounds like that's their go-to when they can't get something working. Extremely disappointed!



Great way to start the season off. #NBA

I've had this app for a very long time. All of a sudden a few months ago the times for the games stopped working and they all say TBD. I've restarted the app and redownloaded it, but it still doesn't work. I've also emailed support twice and haven't gotten a response. In that respect, not great... otherwise it works fine though. My latest reference number is 170803-000027.

The official NBA application can be summarized as a resourceful well designed and easy to use source for information. The app can be used to read top league stories, watch videos, view statistics and more. Basic day to day league information can be accessed including regular season standings, team schedules as well as team and individual player news and transactions. Fantasy has a bigger place in the app as fantasy leagues have become more important the last few years and users can also read up on the most important year round dates for the league whether it be the regular season, playoffs, draft, combine, summer league and more. If you are only interested in reading about one team instead of the league you have the option of narrowing your concern to your favorite team or teams you want to follow. The same goes for players as to where you can keep a close on one or a select few. These preferences are reflected in the alerts you can set as you can set them for not just team start times, end times and final scores but individual player statistics. The app comes in handy as a way to watch NBA league pass, listen to NBA league pass audio and view select classic games. The app comes through in the visuals as well with such features as the screen wide NBA Playoff bracket which is continually updated to tell you all teams involved, series markers, and overall conference standings. The app has a few flaws mainly being not allowing users to e-mail, share or save articles as well as a bug here or there. Besides that the app is still very good as a representation of the league. This app has something for everybody whether it be casual fans, diehard fans, junkies, fantasy nerds or those just interested in their favorite team or player.

Great for NBA fans  jacob's ipod touch  5 star

Has everything a NBA fan would want in a NBA app and more.

Needs work  Tito Bliss  2 star

App is slow and laggy, especially when looking up scores and the box scores.


Buggy and Laggy  Akinda1625  1 star

Every update gets worse and worse, the app is very slow, very buggy, and overall terrible.


Another one.  Prometheus92  1 star

Come on NBA! Ya'll need to fire your software developers. Let me know if ya'll need help writing code. I don't even think your code compiled lol.


NBA app  twolvesnation  1 star

This app is absolutely terrible. Poor performance and way too many bugs. Navigating box scores is almost impossible. Step it up NBA


Disappointed  DavidtheConfident  1 star

With all the money that the NBA makes I'm disappointed to find that their app is still mediocre. Here's a hint: Look at the NHL app for tips on how to improve the NBA app. If need be, copy the entire format of the NHL app. That's how much this app needs improvement.

Year after Year it's a buggy app  RaG And tAg  1 star

I don't understand how every year the NBA put out a terrible app, rather than fix problems, they introduce new ones every release. Still inconsistent play back, box scores no working consistently. This has been true in at the least the last two releases.


Wayyyy Too Slow  RJV163782652  1 star

Box score takes at least 30 seconds to load. App used to be good. Ad's have ruined it.
