Slam Dunk Central
What else could a blog with a title Slam Dunk Central be all about except basketball. USA loves basketball and this is about the kind of basketball they love – NBA.
Visual Aesthetics – 7
Simple template with plenty of pics. For a blog about NBA though it doesn’t deliver in terms of look. You would expect something with NBA written all over it to look more professional and have a lot more flair.
User Friendliness – 9
Positives: Fast loading time. Highly readable text. Very informative posts. Very simple and organized sidebar. Uncluttered look. Plenty and well-organized social media buttons. Negatives: No categories.
Reading Enjoyment – 8
Plenty of long, exhaustive entries that are sure to be a hit among NBA addicts. Plenty of informative news snippets as well. The variety (but still themed) of entries make for a non-boring blog. Well-written even if the pieces are not the best or most engaging ones I’ve read on NBA.
Useful Info – 8
Those looking for the latest info on anything and everything NBA will probably find it here. If you want trivia or old info though you might have a hard time looking for it in this blog even if does exist because there is no way to really navigate that well around old posts. Unorganized information lessens its usefulness.
Overall Experience – 8
The blog claims to bring the best NBA coverage. While I highly doubt that it is true (afterall there’s always NBA.com) its does a pretty good job in keeping fans up-to-date. It does not more organization to look more professional and be user friendly.
