The NBA season may be almost over, but it never hurts to prepare for the following year. There are lots of great NBA themed apps on Android but these are some essential apps you’ll need to help enhance the game season to make the most out of every game from scores to entertainment.
Filling in those between times and bringing you back a healthy dose of nostalgia all in one fell swoop, NBA Jam gives you the NBA entertainment you need when you don’t have games to watch or scores to catch up on. Enjoy the game by yourself or challenge friends to local multiplayer, or take it online and best random opponents.
Fox Sports Mobile
Think of Fox Sports Mobile as a sort of all-inclusive app. You can view video highlights from your favorite games, check up on scores, and check out news and analysis relating to the sports, teams, and players you follow.
If you’re an NBA fan chances are you play the NBA2k series from 2K games, and if you picked up NBA 2k15 this is the companion app to help enhance the experience. You can use the app to get matched up with players who are around the same skill level and you can even earn in-game rewards for the console game.
If you want up to date, minute to minute scores on every single game during the NBA season, the ESPN app should be in your app drawer. In addition to quick scores updates, it gives you real-time updates and commentary on games and plays, and it easily lets you share game and play highlights with friends through social feeds like Facebook and Twitter.
While the ESPN app is all about getting you updates and highlights on scores and games, WatchESPN is all about letting you actually watch all the action, even live games. It gives you access to the video from any of the ESPN channels as long as you have a supported cable provider to link the app to.

NBA Game Time
This is the official app from the NBA, giving fans access to stats, game recaps, and a host of other features like game schedules and scores.
