  • Disappointed

    By Another Predictable Super Hero
    Wanted to get basic updates and scores. The app withholds scores and what is going on.
  • Lacking

    By Hgbnnv
    The stats haven't been updated to this season, play by play lags, app is going downhill.
  • Poorly-made app

    By Alex5555555
    This app has the potential to be good, but there are so many nagging issues which completely ruin the user experience. First and most importantly, when watching NBA League Pass games, the iPhone XS Max gets extremely hot and the battery drains approximately 60% with 1.5 hours of screen time. This is clearly wrong and is an optimization issue on NBA’s end. Next, the player pages are not working correctly in box scores. When tapping on some players, like Rookies and some stars like Joel Embiid, no player page comes up. This was the case during the preseason and also is now. This must be fixed. Next, the auto update of scores is not working properly and I sometimes have to force quit the NBA App from the app switcher to update scores. Also during streaming on League Pass, I am not able to view scores of other games or stats of the game that I am watching without leaving the broadcast. I believe there must be an implementation of a live pull-down scoreboard and an instant box score that will allow users to access this important game information whilst watching the games. This would greatly enhance the user experience and save time.
  • I really want to give this 5 stars but

    By SLYBOY_22
    I like this app but there’s two features that I feel it’s still is allowing the Apple TV version off app to stream 4 games like the web version of league pass. Also if there was a playback speed for rewatching games on league pass of 1.5x or 2x speed instead of just the 30minute condensed feature that just shows made shots but doesn’t give you a feel of the game.
  • App crashes going into game break

    By zqaxwsced
    As many users have mentioned in recent reviews, the app will always crash going into a game break when it’s suppose to switch to the in-arena stream / commercials.
  • Ads

    By macjaymac
    Why on earth am I seeing ads when I pay for NBA league pass? Is 200 dollars not enough for me to watch a recap of a game without seeing an Allstate app? I can pay 1.99 for an app in the App Store and get no ads, but of course the NBA is still going to have us watch ads when we pay 200 !? Please fix this NBA and you will have many more happy customers.
  • Can’t access my league pass subscription

    By AannoyedA
    I’ve signed in several times and get to a page where it says I have successfully signed in; however, I can’t move forward from there. So...this app is worthless
