App puts ProBasketballTalk — and other NBC blogs — on iPad


PBT and the iPad now go together like chicken and waffles. Hmmm, chicken and waffles… drool…..

There’s a new ProBasketballTalk app for your iPad. Well, we think of it that way but it is really the new NBC Sports Talk app where you can get not only PBT but also ProFootballTalk, CollegeFootballTalk, HardballTalk, ProHockeyTalk and all the other great NBC blogs all in one app on your iPad.

The best part is it’s free. Well within your budget.

There is an iPhone app coming soon as well.

Check out our new digs. Put your feet up, make yourself at home.

Welcome to our new flat. You like?

A lot of smart people at NBC worked long and hard to come up with a new look for this blog that matches the recently redesigned NBCSports.com site. The carpet matches the drapes now, if you will. What’s more, the PBT team is pumped because some back-of-the-house tinkering makes our jobs easier, gives us better control over the comments and generally just rocks.

Let me go MTV Cribs and show you around.

The biggest change for you, dear reader, is that when you want to comment, you have to register now. I know, I know, not everybody is down with that. Sorry. Just register once and it is over with, and we promise not to sell your information to the Sacramento Kings season ticket sales office.

The fact is that we love the robust discussion on many of the posts — and will be playing along more — but there were some things that needed to be cleaned up. Some things dragging the comments down. No longer.

And yes, you now have to click a link to read all of any story. Not everyone loves that. Frankly I think it makes the site look a lot cleaner and less gray. Sure, we would like a hit count bump too, but the new look is really about helping you find the stories you want to read faster.

Up at the top of the page now is the “Top Posts” where you can find the big stories instantly. Underneath will be the usual fast flow of everything NBA, from games to Russian Billionaires getting vodka sponsorships for their teams. You know, the important stuff.

If you see a post you like, you can now tweet it or get it on Facebook with a click. Whatever you think of Mark Zuckerberg. Same with one click to twitter. You can also send us an email in the tips/feedback area.

That’s it for now. Just make yourself at home. Take your shoes off and put your feet up. It’s not just our place, it’s yours too.

Just a reminder: Become a PBT fan on Facebook

We know you want to get your basketball news and opinion right in the middle of updates from your friends about the great restaurants they are going to while you have to work for a living. Life’s not fair.

At least we can help you with the basketball part — become a fan of ProBasketballTalk on Facebook. It’s just a click away. All the news from PBT streams right into FaceBook, plus we do some special posts just for FB. We’re like that.

If you’re lucky, we’ll even throw in a restaurant recommendation or two.

(Also, don’t forget we’re on twitter
with a lot of original content.)
