New NBCSportsTalk app to put on that iPhone you are getting for Christmas

3 Comments

Those of you getting an iPhone this Christmas… what took you so long? The cool kids have all had them for a couple years. And upgraded them three times.

Whatever. Let’s move on to the important stuff — now we have a new way for you to have ProBasketballTalk and all the NBCSports blogs at your fingertips:

The NBCSportsTalk iPhone app. It’s available right now, right here.

Not only is PBT updated there so you don’t miss a word of what passes for our wit and wisdom,  but also you get the content from ProFootballTalk, CollegeFootballTalk, HardballTalk, ProHockeyTalk and all the other great NBC blogs. Download this app and all the latest sports news will be at your fingertips.

For free. Don’t think we can mention that enough. Free.

This is similar to the iPad app that you already downloaded right after you bought an iPad — and that is getting an update as well. We know you have an iPad, because if Steve Jobs puts out a new product you jump on it. Fast.

After the first of the year sometime the Android version of the app will be available.

The Grizzlies lost for the 15th time in their last 16 games, a 25-point drubbing at home against the Heat, last night.

But it wasn’t all doom and gloom in Memphis.

This young fan – while playing in the halftime scrimmage – stopped his dribble, stepped on the ball, whipped off his youth jersey to reveal a Marc Gasol jersey, flexed, re-started his dribbled then drove for a basket.

Matt Ellentuck of SB Nation:

The Grizzlies don’t deserve this hero.

DeMarcus Cousins pushes Trevor Ariza after whistle, gets technical foul (video)

For better or worse, DeMarcus Cousins is moody.

Just after getting dunked on by Clint Capela, Cousins showed his frustration by pushing Trevor Ariza after a whistle. The Pelicans center got his NBA-leading ninth technical foul – automatic suspension triggered at No. 16 – but I’m surprised this didn’t escalate beyond just that.

The Thunder suffered a rough home loss to the Hornets, but at least Oklahoma City produced a couple fun highlights.

Not only did Russell Westbrook have this powerful dunk, Paul George put the moves on Jeremy Lamb.
