    "If you're wanting the official anything for NBA, the official site is probably a good place to go. There are other sites that are better for niche information or things the NBA maybe wouldn't talk about, but if you're wanting straight stats there's no better option."

    "This website is very straight-forward and easy to use. Its my favorite go-to for stats on both basketball teams overall and individual players. Everything I need is on one page so if I click into a link, it is very easy not to "lose my way" into a site."

    "If you are like me and need to keep up with all the stats then the first thing you have is probably an app. What you really should be using is ESPN. Check the site, or the app works too I guess but they always have the most up to date stats and scores. "

    "Bleacher Report is where I go to get all of my sports scores, especially NBA stats and scores. It keeps me totally informed with everything I could ever need or want to know. I especially like how if I can't watch the game, they keep a live play-by-play."

    "Yahoo Sports is alright for sports news, but I think its NBA page could use some sprucing up. It feels cluttered and I have to pick through the mess of ads to get what I really want, which is news! I need to find something else."

    "FOX Sports is a great place to get just about anything you want related to sports, and the NBA is no exception to that. Sometimes I think they are even more reliable than ESPN who have the occasional controversial anchor. I usually look up Fox Sports for all my sports stats."

    "While Sports Illustrated may have good info in it, by the time an issue is published, you could have looked elsewhere for the information. It is also more cost effective to look elsewhere. However, offering a digital version, as well as print, is a good way to swift get the information that is offered. It is also a more convenient way."

    "Slam is a decent read for those who mostly want to read written basketball coverage without hearing too much about other sports. The problem is that it just can't compete with the internet in terms of getting you information as fast as possible. It might be worth subscribing if you want to read more about players' backstories and lives, but if you just want to see the results of a month's worth of games, it's a lot easier to just go online and check it there, or to check scores/standings on TV."

    "MSN sports is your standard run of the mill site to find sports scores. Not as comprehensive as some of the other big time sites, but you can basically find any score you need though they tend to focus on the major sports more. Some smaller sports you may have to dig for scores on but for the most part it's there. Probably the 4th of 5th best option for scores behind ESPN, CBS and others "
