I wanted to do a quick post just to introduce myself and explain a little bit about why I’m doing this.
So to start with the most relevant thing about me, I love the NBA. Not only do I love the NBA, but I particularly love thinking about the NBA and all the different elements of it, from contracts and trades to x’s and o’s to stats and analytics. With that said, I’m particularly drawn to being able to clearly articulate and objectively answer questions that aren’t obvious to the average fan of the game.
Beyond that, my love of sports is not limited to the NBA. I’m also an avid football fan (and by “football” I’m referring to soccer, because why is American football not called “throwball” or something more sensible to how it’s played) and can honestly watch and enjoy any sport. Music is another passion of mine as I’ve played the drums regularly for over 20 years now.
I’m originally a Texas native and a Baylor grad (Sic ’em!), but I moved to the Bay Area a while back and have been here since. The Bay has become my home and my wife and I love it here. So much great food and drink, so much diversity, amazing weather, and beautiful surroundings have made it easy to call home. And that’s not to mention the amazing community of friends we’ve made since moving out here.
And now I’m at a crossroads, where I’m venturing out of my career I’ve known to pursue something that I’m passionate about. So if you happen to find yourself here somehow, I hope this gives you a little insight into who I am and why I’m writing. I hope you enjoy anything you find yourself reading here, and whether you do or not, I would love to hear from you! I love getting to know people, so please don’t ever hesitate to reach out.
Thanks for reading, and welcome to my small corner of the Internet I’m calling “Basketball, Stat.”
