When I am looking at sports website, I am looking for the latest news, scores and stats and this website does not provide that. For other sports news, this site is great because the news that they provide are genuine."

    "There are a bunch of sports magazines available on the market, Slam Magazine is one I wasn't familiar with until recently. If you are particularly a fan of basketball, Slam may very well be just right up your alley. I really like the magazine after getting a few issues; I'm even considering getting a subscription. If you're interested in anything basketball (from high school to NBA), then give Slam Magazine a try. "

    "Pro Sports Daily does offer a good list of syndicated sports news but the website itself is cluttered and clunky with ads that distract the viewer and are very annoying. Also the website is not visually appealing with few graphics that accompany the headlines. There is also not a very good balance between the various sports."

It is limited though, in that it only has news about basketball rather than all sports. I would definitely recommend it if you are looking for basketball news."
