What are the best resources for watching NBA games online?

Lebron James, Stephen Curry, Kevin Durant, Kahwi Leonard—these are only a few of the current NBA superstars. One way or another, I’m sure you would know at least one of them. Who doesn’t? The NBA has already taken the world by storm with a huge, steady, cult-like following. But if you genuinely do not know what the NBA is, it stands for National Basketball Association, a men’s professional basketball league in North America. With 30 teams from the east and west coast of America and one in Canada vying for the golden cup, the games are heated and the fans are rabid.

In all honesty, NBA games are almost always the talk of the town. The matches played on the hardwood are absolutely exciting but more so during the Playoffs where the top eight teams from each conference battle out or the All-Star Game, an exhibition game between the season’s most popular players. If you’re a fan, you really shouldn’t miss all the action or else suffer from being excluded in NBA conversations. Harsh, right? But with all the games being played on cities all across the different states, watching the games live on the court would be impractical. Additionally, we’re not always at home to be able to sit in front of the TV and cheer for our teams. It may seem like a stalemate but cheer up, we’re here to help you stay in the loop and be updated. Just for you, we’ve listed the best resources for watching NBA games online. Hopefully, this will suffice your need for the ball action. So what are you waiting for? Go ahead and check out the best NBA streaming sites!

    "Direct TV's online streaming functions, including those that you'd use to stream the NBA and other sports leagues, still need some work. You'll run into less ads and pop-ups than you would with free streams, but these paid streams are still not sufficiently reliable or flexible - some devices and players that you'd expect to work are not fully supported. The company needs to work on this if they want to compete against free resources - why pay for something that's barely better than what you can get for free?"
