I'm not sure if the is the right place for an app question (is there a more appropriate place?) but I am looking for an iPhone 4S app that allows you to follow select NBA players to see how they are doing as the season goes along. I am trying to keep an eye on former Florida Gators in the NBA (other sports would be nice to). Any help would be greatly appreciated.
That's a very good idea (do they actually give status or just fantasy points). One thing that will make it a little tougher though is that we are talking basketball and not football but I'll see if it is doable.
The pickings do appear a bit slimmer for Fantasy Basketball apps, but I know ESPN has one.
As an alternate suggestion, you may want to look into an RSS aggregator (Really Simple Syndication). You can pick and choose your feeds, although I don't know if the NBA publishes individual player's stats as RSS feeds.
I looked into the fantasy angle. There are a few problems. Must (if not all) of the fantasy leagues are closed for membership as the season is actually more than half over. In a fantasy league it would defeat the whole purpose if you could just take all the players you wanted without giving other teams a chance in a draft. I know a service like this is available it's just a matter of locating it. I sent ESPN an email asking if they could do it or a recommend someone else if not.
