In fact, enter this contest and you may need to pack those devices with you if you win: we are giving away a trip for 2 to see an NBA final game, including accommodations; a prize package worth $11,200!

Get closer to the game with Samsung

I remember a couple decades ago, craning my neck to see above my brothers (I have 5 of them), to see the grainy NBA action on a box-television perched on the living room floor. Times have sure changed. In many ways the game has not changed too much. Oh sure, we have new players—exciting, incredibly talented players—but in essence the game has been and will continue to be fan-exhilarating. However, the latest innovation has transformed how we experience the game.

Face it, very few of us in Canada will get the opportunity to attend a live NBA game (even fewer an NBA Finals game!). The latest offerings from Samsung bring that game to us, anywhere. Just peruse the Samsung page online at Best Buy and you’ll get a sense of the many ways that you can follow the NBA, learn about the players, or find out the latest NBA news as soon as it happens. Here are some of the Samsung products you’ll find at Best Buy:

  • Samsung QLED TV: QLED from
  • Samsung brings consistently bright colours, and brilliant contrast for the most amazing, natural action.
  • Samsung Galaxy Book: Experience a captivating mobile entertainment experience with quad speaker sound and a SUPER Amoled display
  • Samsung S9/S9+: Capture the moment in the moment with Super Slow-mo and incredible low-light performance with dual aperture.
  • Samsung Gear: Don’t miss a minute of your NBA news, whether you are on a run or at your desk at work.

NBA playoffs and Samsung are a perfect match

You know the NBA playoffs will not disappoint. Is your favourite team in the East or the West? Okay so perhaps that is a silly question in Canada given that Toronto will likely be a popular choice. Toronto is considered by many to be a top contender from the East, along with Cleveland and Boston. In the West, most people see either the Golden State, OKC, or Houston reaching the finals. Who do you want to see in the NBA Finals?

  5. Actually any Samsung TV would do right now. I’m not picky. Would just be happy to watch the finals. Pulling for GSW vs anyone from the east but that’s looking iffy at this point.

  6. The Samsung S9 would help me enjoy the NBA playoffs because of the professional quality Dual Pixel Sensor technology with depth-of-field, antiblur and enhanced optical image stabilization. And, the Super Slow-mo would catch some awesome shots.

  7. I would love to be able to watch the game with my family on the Samsung 75″ 4K smart tv. Or to have the samsung s9/9+ to capture memories with friends and family.

  8. With A Samsung Galaxy Book, I would watch the NBA finals in the comfort confines of my home while my family can watch their favourite shows on the television.

  15. The Samsung tech that I think would help me to enjoy the NBA playoffs all depends on where I am 😉 If I ever won, I would definitely need the Samsung S9/S9+ so I can video some of the shots in super slow motion. Now if I didn’t win 🙁 I would have to go with the Samsung the 75″ 4K UHD HDR QLED Tizen Smart TV so I can feel like I’m there with the bright colours, brilliant contrast and the most amazing, natural action.

  16. If not in person, I would love to watch the NBA the Samsung QLED TV and feel like I was there in person
