NBA IS THE BEST AND SO IS NFL 5/5
By Julian k Murphy
MY FAV PLAYER IS LEBRON
I thought I could just watch live streams I didn't know you needed league pass
Worst app 1/5
Im a big fan i have fantasy and buy legue pass but this is the worst app that i have. C"mon NBA have to do better job.
Unusable download "the score" 1/5
I've had the nba app for three years and it was great until the 16-17 season. It's full of bugs, overly packed with adds, and a terrible downgrade in interface. Don't download this app. Download the Score app instead.
Edit: I deleted the app from my iPad too. The app doesn't load properly because it is a clusterfuck of adds
Horrible UI and UX 1/5
Try to scroll the schedule! I dare you. An ad will load and mess up your view.
Try to find Box-score after the game. Nope.
Try to compare stats. A few versions ago teams were split screen. Now you toggle screens.
Ugh. It just keeps getting worse.
Very buggy, scores are often not up to date 3/5

Very buggy, scores are often not up to date
Streaming from iPhone 7 to Apple TV 1/5
By An upset father
Watching the game on the phone is fine, but when I mirror it to my tv using Apple TV or a HDMI converter, I have to watch it in a tiny box, if the game is in full screen, the game is at 90 degrees like literally up and down... this is not okay. Apple says it's a problem with your app not their products. PLEASE FIX or I will stop paying to watch games!
Never gets better 1/5
As every update comes and goes, the bugs remain. How on earth can you charge so much money for this and then not have it work properly?
I live in southern Delaware. My Celtics played the Wizards in Boston last night. The game was blacked out. Really? Why? 🏀☘👎🤓
New Update! 1/5
By knee draggen
The new update Is not working properly! No Sound
By MR TALL G MAN
Due to where I am I can't watch my home team cuz of something with some kind of black out thing and it also says I can't watch it cuz where my location is that I'm at now.
Worst part of the NBA presentation 1/5
By Ben E1101
Between commercials, blackouts and terrible video players (this app and web) it's truly amazing how much content I missed and the quality of what got, because I actually gave money to the NBA. I will never buy LP again. This app excels in nothing and ESPN or your team's app do the job, similarly or quicker/better.
The ads works very well. 1/5
Doesn't work. Impossible to watch games. Crash crash crash.
Amazing but needs an option to watch NBA TV games!!! 5/5
By Huda Flaun
Overall as an NBA fan it's an unbelievable app and I love using it but my only issue is that I can't watch NBA TV games on my mobile phone if I'm on the road so I think they should add a TV Provider option like a bunch of other apps do and when you sign in you can watch NBA TV live so whoever runs the app please read this and I know a lot of people that would really appreciate this update!!
Still a crappy app 1/5
I wish that I could give this thing zero stars. There are just so many glitches. I still can't fast-forward. When I try the window shrinks and half the game disappears. Games from previous days don't always appear. Just terrible. This is the last year I buy league pass!!!
Love it 5/5
By RANDOMANDREW 13
Really disappointed in the NBA 1/5
I've used this app for years but have sadly switched to ESPN because this app is so bad. It's very glitchy, has annoying ads even after buying league pass, spoilers with short summaries of the game under the hidden scores and records, illogical design, etc. Hands down worst app on my phone. Thanks NBA.
League Pass!! 1/5
By Bham man
You've had several seasons now to get League Pass right. There are still full days when you don't post ANY games and I still have to sign in and out several times in hopes that it will refresh. Get it fixed or charge less money so our expectations are lower.
Staggeringly bad 1/5
I find it hard to swallow that the NBA takes money for League Pass every year, and yet clearly can't be bothered to reinvest a fraction of those funds into a proper tech platform. NBA apps, including this current iOS iteration, are woefully inadequate. Buggy, in some cases pixelated video, prone to crashing. I love the NBA. I listen to podcasts, read articles, and spend my disposable income on tickets and jerseys. It would be nice if the league could try to improve the experience we are all paying for? The finances are publicly available to see. The money is there. Step it up NBA. If you can't put out a more stable video platform than the average porn site, you're doing it wrong. Poach a few engineers from Google's YouTube division and get the tech right. It's not that hard, it just costs money.
By Fan, but...
Great app! The news is amazing and so is watching the games live wherever you are. Very helpful and fun app for any NBA fan. A must get.
The league deserves better 1/5
The interface is archaically slow.
SCREW YOUR APP 1/5
ARE YOU FREAKING KIDING ME I cant even listen do a game without buying it so if you are the developer and you are looking at this YOUR APP US STUPID so if you don't let me watch these games for free if you have followed a team in the next 3 days I am deleting this app NO EXCEPTIONS oh and by the way SCREW YOUR APP!!!!!!!!!
Pathetic, gets worse every year 1/5
Inconvenient and poorly designed. Like it's done by people who does not understand basketball. Very annoying and disappointing
I regret buying league pass because for IOS IPhone because full screen orientation of image is broken.
I suppose it would please the rich powerful overlords at the NBA if I turned my television 90 degrees and pretended to be happy.
Game stats are less user friendly 1/5
By Movie buff 1
Scrolling in Box Score is extremely annoying.
Worse and worse!!! 1/5
BUGs are everywhere, design is terrible and inconvenient, breakdown is frequently.
Apple Watch Issues 1/5
App on the watch doesn't show the right date and it is very confusing when looking at the scores. It should have the option to view previous date scores and future games when moving the crown. App should allow to see schedule, standings, and purchase tickets to a game. Notifications should also appear on the watch.
User experience = terrible 2/5
So uhhhhh how's that new app coming? You probably think it makes sense to wait for a major upgrade until next season but it really needs it now. All the issues noted in the other reviews are true, but here's one that I haven't seen anyone mention. The formatting in articles and news stories is horrendous. I'm using an iPhone 6, and no videos/photos work at all within articles. Everything is plain text. Why?! And not only did you remove career stats for individual players, you can't even see TPG, one of the most basic stats. C'mon now.
Last years app was fine. This one is totally unusable. It actually does not work. The daily schedule doesn't load properly and can't scroll. You can click the games. Love the NBA apps of the past but this one just doesn't work. Please change it guys!
Tl;dr this is the worst app I've ever used please fix everything
The app is terrible. It's slow, the league pass problems happen every day and the fact that it doesn't offer a widget is just retarded.
It's embarrassing for the NBA.
Major bugs 1/5
Umm....I cannot see any of the player stats. Fix this.
Y'all realize this app literally doesn't work right
It's not working 1/5
It's not working the newest update
Hurting the NBA 1/5
I purchased League Pass for the first time this year, and the customer experience is so bad that I actually watch fewer games now than before I subscribed. I can only assume that the developers either don't use the app themselves or just don't care. This app (and League Pass in general) is hurting the NBA and should be discontinued until it can be given proper thought and care.
Consistently disappointing... 1/5
Each update somehow makes this app worse without addressing the many user issues noted in the comments. However I'll make a list that will hopefully be acknowledged.
The list of bugs and problems is incredibly long but there are a few I encounter everyday.
When reading articles, it seems to refresh and bring me back to the beginning automatically rendering articles unreadable.
When watching games on league pass, the game will shut off randomly and the app opens the info for another random game.
For some reason the scroll down action in the box score section became automatic. Meaning you don't fully scroll. It just springs up or down for you making checking box scores incredibly frustrating.
There aren't even close to full stats for each player. You can't see how many games each has played. You can't look at career stats. You can only view the last three games of each player and only points, rebounds and assists of those games. When a player is traded to a new team the stats seem to only reflect the games played for the new team and not the full season.
I'll add more as I come across them. In the mean time I hope the NBA could fix these issues and provide a high quality app. It's absurd how bad this app is. It seems like the developers are just trying to get through this season without fixing anything at all.
Unfortunately I'm constantly seeking other ways to find scores, stats and news. I'd prefer to get it all from this NBA app but sadly I can't use it anymore.
Many Bugs in Scores/schedule panel 2/5
The program is very inconsistent in reporting the scores and schedule in the left hand panel of the Games page. Please fix this! I thought it was due to my older iPad mini running iOS 9, but I just got a new iPad mini 4 and have the same problems.
Not working 1/5
Been working well till the last 2 recent updates. Game score and status freezes. Game could be ending in 5 seconds while the app shows it at 3rd quarter with 8 mins to go. At first I thought they somehow stopped the game like that blackout in Super Bowl, and then I realized it was the app coz lets face it, they don't stop EVERY single game!
0 stars if I could. 1/5
How much money does the NBA have? And yet they can't make a decent app that actually works?!? And they smother ads all over it. Disgusting.
How about this? I would be happy with just the scores working... but it's so buggy I can't even check them consistently!!! Find a development company who can make you a good app! Really disappointing.
Doesn't work when connected to tv 2/5
I use an HDMI to lightning connector. When I took it up to my TV and make the league pass stream landscape, it stays in portrait mode on the TV making the game side ways
Getting worse year by year. 1/5
By A disappointment customer
Last year this app was bearable now it is terrible. I would by recommend this app to anyone as it has countless flaws. For example, it crashes unexpectedly, it is more difficult than the previous versions to navigate. Extremely disappointed if you just want stats or want to watch a game I would not use this app. Instead use a computer. Anything is better than this atrocity.
New Update 1/5
There isn't much to say about this app that hasn't been said. It's hard to believe how bad it is. Hopefully everyone's reviews will be enough to change the app closer to what it was last season.
Garbage. I, like many others here, don't usually write reviews unless they're really good/really bad. But I'm so fed up with NBA. With the money they rake in, you'd think they could afford to develop a decent app. It consistently crashes and has made the league pass purchase a huge waste of money. Avoid at all costs.
Would rate it no stars if I could 1/5
Throw it back to how it was in 2012-2013 the layout is terrible right now fire whoever's been designing this app for the last 4-5 years. I don't know why after all these bad reviews you guys still don't do anything about it. It's like you want an asscrap app.
Zero stars if i can 1/5
Very poor. Not user friendly. Very poor GUI. Pos
Just Awful 1/5
The worst app on the market. Half of time the stream isn't even available. If it is, then it constantly loops to a previous point of the broadcast. Some Product Manager should lose his/her job over this.
Go back to last years version!! 1/5
By Mel lekkas
This new 2016-2017 version of the app crashes and isn't as user friendly. I'll just be switching to the ESPN app when checking game scores.
Please bring back last years version 1/5
Not user friendly and crashes wayyy to much. Why would local games be blackout if you have the option to watch both broadcasts...should it just automatically just lock in the local?
Poor Layout. 1/5
The only time I ever write a review is if an app is extremely good or extremely bad. This app is extremely bad. I have had this since the change to the new layout a few years back and can I say that when you changed the layout I was excited. But this layout is nowhere near as good as the other. This layout has space for more ads, is a lot less efficient, lags a heck of a lot more, and frankly doesn't function. The app is so focused on beauty it is not user friendly anymore. The only reason I still have his app is because of the notification I can set that CBS sports doesn't offer. Other than that, I will suggest CBS sports for an NBA app rather than he NBA app itself.
Pathetic app 1/5
Everytime they "upgrade" this app, it gets worse. The NBA is raking in literally billions. You'd think they could give the fans at least a competent app design. Truly pathetic.
The scoreboard is not updating and I spent a lot of money on this it's not fair to me
