NHL Bedside Hockey Light and LCD
The lag is no more than 60 seconds. This amount could be configured to be shorter, but I wanted to avoid hitting the JSON webservice too hard.
I do not have any plans for supporting NBA via software, but the hardware could certainly be used to display NBA games. The software is currently pulling the NHL feed for games, not NBA.
Please let me know if you have questions on any of the steps listed on the instructable.

Hi - I am using the NHL JSON API (see the code for specifics). When I know it is during a game, I hit it each minute. So yes, worst case the horn takes 59 seconds to fire from actual score. But the point of the device, to me, is to let me be a part of the games, when I have other stuff going on, and cannot even be bothered to put the game on in the background. I also like that it reminds me when a game is beginning, who they are playing, and just let's me keep up with the score.I'd be happy to help out more, and welcome you using my code for your own project. I tried to externalize all the main items, and could even implement a new function for the display.
