Sometimes, you just want a new look.
You may have noticed, we’ve got one here at ProBasketballTalk and NBCSports.com. This was more than just getting a new hairstyle, this is an entirely new look top to bottom — and trust me, this is all good stuff.
Maybe the best news — we now have a true mobile site for PBT and NBCSports.com. This was maybe the thing I heard most from readers commenting to me on the old site. Now, if you’re checking Twitter on your phone and see a story link I tweet out you want to read — and I’m sure that’s 95 percent of them *cough* — you’ll roll to a mobile friendly site that is easy to read on your phone. NBCSports.com is now an adaptable, responsive layout for four different screen sizes — desktop, tablet portrait and landscape, and mobile.
Also much requested and good news, there’s a drop-down menu (just below the scoreboard, to the right of where it says “Pro Basketball Talk”) that lets you sort news by team.
Also, PBT isn’t going away but now has been folded more into the NBCSports.com NBA page. The PBT team will still bring you all the news, notes and analysis you could want from all around the NBA, but now you’ll get more — such as key stories from the Comcast SportsNet writers covering NBA teams. There’s Monte Poole with the NBA champ Warriors, A. Sherrod Blakely on the Celtics, J. Michael on the Wizards, and the list goes on and on — their best work will now be integrated right into the story stream on the NBC NBA page.
A few other changes you may notice:
• Articles now will scroll one after the other down the page — read one PBT story and you can scroll straight into the next one (if you want to see the comments on a story, just click that link and they pop up).
• A scoreboard ticker for those on desktops and tablets.
• Everything you can stream live through the site, via NBC Sports Live Extra, is there on the left-hand side of the page, so you’ll see it instantly and be able to jump right in.
• The amazing and up-to-date player news such as injury reports, transactions, and stats from Rotoworld, will be more prominently displayed throughout the site.
Change is often good — and these changes are great for you and how most of you like to consume this site and your NBA news. We are now more reader friendly — especially if you are on a smartphone.
