Online Games Can Be Interesting...

Basketball is one of the most popular team sports in the world. No surprise that there are a lot of video games and most of them are successful, such as NBA 2k series, NBA Live series. There is no doubt that best basketball game on PC is NBA 2k15. It is an awesome game, with high graphics and it is so realistic... Unfortunately, it requires high computer resources, so not everyone can play this. Moreover, you have to buy it or download it illegally (which is not recommended!).

However, this article is about basketball games online - you do not need to download or buy anything, you do not have to give a lot of gigabytes and these games do not use a lot of computer resources. But that does not mean that they are not interesting and not worth your attention. Actually, some of them require some thinking and only smart people can succeed.

In my personal opinion, this is the best basketball game online. Actually, it is a manager. When you register, you get a team with random players. At the start, your team is very weak. Your goal is to get it to the top of your league. How can you do that? Well, train players, win games, increase the size of arena, be good at merchandising. These are probably the most important steps. The manager is very interesting and I would strongly recommend you to try it if you are a basketball fan. Definitely, you will need some time to understand some things. But after that, you will be able to enjoy the game. Join Buzzerbeater right now!

What Does Buzzer Beater Mean in Basketball?


This is the biggest Buzzerbeater's competitor. Charazay is another basketball manager which is very popular around the world. Basically, it is very similar to Buzzerbeater - you buy players, train them, learn how the tactics work and surprise your opponents, win titles, etc. It might sound boring, but it is not, definitely. To be honest, it is very challenging game as there are many active players, some of them are very experienced and it is hard to beat them. So, your mission is to find out how to do that. It might take some time, but nothing is easy in this life, right?

Take a look what some guy think about Charazay: Why I play Charazay Basketball Manager?

Buzzerbeater or Charazay?

This is a tough question and there is no clear answer. Some people like one, others do another. Personally, I love Buzzerbeater. I started playing it about 5 years ago and I still did not get bored. However, a guy that I mentioned above said the same in his article Why I play Charazay Basketball Manager? So, I would recommend you to register to both games and see which one suits better for you. However, bear in mind one thing - you will not be a champion in first weeks in these games. You have to find out how everything works - this is the only way to success.

Other Basketball Managers

There are a lot of basketball managers on the Web. However, none of them are so successful as Buzzerbeater or Charazay are. Nevertheless, you still might like some of them. So, here is a short list of nice basketball managers which you may want to try:

Basketball Manager - the idea is similar to most of basketball managers - you are managing your team, training players and trying to win games.

Basketball GM - again, idea is the same. However, I love how this game is presented in their official website. It encourages me to press Start Playing Now. Honestly, I have not tried this. But it looks really good!

World Basketball Manager - another online basketball game created by a Greek guy in 2003. It is just like other managers - lets you manage your team. Read more about this in Wikipedia.

PowerPlay Manager - this is slightly different from others - you have the possibility to play hockey, soccer, basketball and handball. So, if you are a not only a basketball fan, you can manage a few sports teams managers in one website! Sounds great!

How to be Successful in Basketball Managers?

It is really hard to answer to this question. Nevertheless, I still have a few advice for you.

One of them would be that you should read rules of the game. Maybe a few times. Believe me, I experienced that and I know what it means playing a game without knowing rules. Undoubtedly, it will be much easier for you after you complete this action.

Furthermore, read forums. Usually, guys, who are active in forums, are experienced and have been playing the manager for a while. It means that they know a lot about the game and they discuss about it. So, you can gain some useful information from others' posts.

Finally, try all the functions at the beginning of playing the manager. Learn by doing. Do not fear to make mistakes! You are learning from them! You can become a good manager only if you do mistakes!
