It’s March, and that means that it’s time for college basketball. This time of year, all of the best schools come together and hold a massive tournament to determine which team is the best.
That means that there will be a ton of basketball on television coming up, so you’ll want to be sure that your home theater system is on point. And Best Buy is here to help you make sure that it is.
Of course, the most important part of your home theater system is the television itself. The best part about basketball is the super-fast action, so one of the most important features you’ll want to look at for sports viewing is refresh rate. Slower television can get blocky and show ghosting when things are happening quickly on screen. You’ll also want great viewing angles, because you’re going to want some friends over to watch the games.
The best bet for a TV with near-instant response time and amazing viewing angles is an OLED TV. Check out the 55” LG B8 series for the most affordable OLED option. If you want to go all out, instead look into the Sony 77” A1E series. We have a wide range of OLED TVs, so check out our assortment here if neither of those options fits your needs.
If you room is especially bright for those early afternoon games, you may want to avoid an OLED and go with an LCD instead. OLED technology is amazing, but it can’t get quite as bright as a traditional LCD just yet. The Vizio P-Series is always a good bet for situations like that, as are the Sony A8F series and the Samsung QN series. If you aren’t sure what TV will best fit your situation, come on in to one of our stores. We’d love to talk to you and find the perfect TV to watch the games on.
Sometime watching basketball gets you in the mood to play some of the game. It’s March though, and still pretty cold, so going outside might not be what you want to do. Luckily, we have a great answer! You can play with the college basketball stars of the past in videogames. NBA 2k19 is available on Xbox One, Switch, and PlayStation 4.
And, if you want to get your kid started on the greatest sport in the world, or just want something to put in your home office for some fun during downtime, we offer a miniature basketball hoop.
If you want some fictional basketball, don’t forget to pick up a copy of the best hoops movie ever, Celtic Pride. Of course, "best" is a matter of oppinion, so you micht also want to check out He Got Game, White Men Can't Jump, or Space Jam.
Just be sure to take some time to watch some of the games this March. There's nothing mroe exciting than a tight basketball game.
