Amazon's Alexa is already helpful for broadcasting sports scores upon request. For the upcoming NBA season though, the virtual assistant will serve up more detailed information on every team in the league. All 30 teams will have their own Alexa Skills, which means you can ask for things like the date of the next home game, who your teams plays on a specific date, if they're winning, stats leaders, standings and the latest team news.

"Alexa, ask the Charlotte Hornets..." is the phrasing you'll need to speak to initiate the request. And of course, saying "Alexa, enable (insert team name here)" will activate the skill for that particular team on your compatible device.

The NBA says its the first pro sports league to make every team available through Alexa. What's more, the NBA regular season starts next week, so you've got plenty of time to enable the skill for your favorite team(s) before the action begins.
