Just a click will get the latest NBA stories, scores, and standings with this helpful Firefox add-on. NBA Scoreboard 2008 installs quickly and cleanly through Firefox. You need only enable its icon on your toolbar to get quick access to a pull-down menu of functions and information from NBA.com.

NBA Scoreboard 2008's unique menu not only lists program functions, but it displays today's final scores at a glance. One click opens any game recap or box score from today or yesterday. It is just as easy to display the standings. The program's options are quickly set and useful. You can display standings and team names in many ways according to your preferences. We liked the ability to have recaps and scores open in new tabs or all in the same tab. However, the program's best feature adds a submenu to the pull-down that displays the NBA.com RSS feed headlines for any team you choose. It takes just a few seconds to select as many teams as you like. Clicking any headline opens the story in your browser.

NBA Scoreboard 2008 is a must-have add-on for any professional basketball fan. IE users will be disappointed to find it only works on Firefox, but it's the kind of easy-to-use and informative tool that makes it worth changing browsers.
