Zero stars AWFUL!

Bad, bad, incredibly bad!

The old app was bad but this update is even worse. You will actually wish for the old app!

No I don't want to have video running unless I ask for it so please keep it off!

This app is totally not user friendly. The boxscore page is a mess. No separation of numbers, no colors, no way to tell who is in the game and hard to tell which team you are looking at. How about using the team color, using bold for players in the game, writing numbers that are not zero in a color?

The play-by-play is another confusion. I think one team is supposed to be on the left side and the other team on the right but mine had plays moving around randomly. Also, who needs to see a player headshot for every play and stat?? What a waste of bandwidth. Of course with video constantly running I guess some extra photos are inconsequential.

The only minor improvement is the matchup screen which shows team stats comparisons like rebounds, steals, turnovers. I don't like the way it scrolls and at least some of the content is useful, but it does't show FG or FT percentages. Those are pretty basic stats! I miss the shot chart with the floor graphic that we had before. That's gone.

Really this app should be considered early beta, not finished and ready for a new season. If they are listening to feedback like they claim it wasn't anybody on these reviews!

Fix Box Score

Please fix your box score functionality. It's horrible. I use the NBA app daily to check scores, but this year's version is very difficult to digest the information.

The shooting categories should be in one column and written like "4-6" to show 4 shots made on 6 attempts. Having them separate columns is confusing when glancing quickly. 4 made shots doesn't tell you anything by itself and neither does 6 attempts. The stat is "4-6" and it should be one column.

The universal abbreviation for Turnover is TO, not TOV.

When you click on a game, the box score should appear immediately as the default, not videos. When checking multiple box scores, it's frustrating to click on a new tab for every game.

Similarly, can you put the two teams on the same page in the box score? It's easier to scroll down than to click on yet another tab.

It's Day 1 of the NBA season and I already started using ESPN's app for getting my stats, and they don't even have a good app themselves. The NBA app is just so bad now that I have no choice but to use that one.

Can you please make this change? I was very content with last year's app, but I'm afraid I'll have to use another one for my daily fix of scores and stats.

New Version is a mess

This new version of the app is a complete mess. Really disappointing. I have one reason I've downloaded this app: I'm a league pass subscriber and want to watch the games with my phone. What started as a simple app continues to get bogged with unhelpful "features." The more complicated it gets the slower it is running and the harder it has become to navigate around. Even the video player is a mess with this new version and we haven't even hit the part yet. Advertising. New app-load ads and pre-roll ads before I watch the game I paid for??? Talk about greedy. Making me seriously consider canceling my league pass subscription.
