James is very easy to talk to. He listens to what you have to say, then responds in a very succinct and meaningful way. His advice on networking wasn’t the typical response; it was like no other advice I’ve ever received and it got me thinking about how I can change the way I network.
James Kerti is truly a ‘renaissance man’ in that he’s equally at ease and insightful in all things related to ‘the new media’, technology, writing and basketball. He’s someone who will make an impact in a lot of different venues.
James Kerti is one of the most intelligent, passionate, and hard working people I have the pleasure of knowing. He has a great basketball IQ and continues to seek out multiple avenues to further strengthen it as well as his many other skills.

James has a deep understanding of marketing and business and has the rare ability of seeing how beautiful design, marketing, and serving the customer fit together. This makes him a “triple threat” … something truly special in the world of web design/development.
James Kerti is a rising star. His knowledge and professionalism are top-notch.

James is undoubtedly one of the leading boys’ hoops scouting experts in the west — and undoubtedly the guru of Las Vegas.
The scouting service provided by James Kerti has been extremely beneficial to our basketball program. His evaluations have been on point and his information has been accurate. I recommend this service to all college basketball programs.

It’s been some time since I’ve written an update on here, so let’s get into it!
HoopsThink has been up and running since mid-October. We’ve been able to welcome some great basketball minds in sharing their expertise. HoopsThink has hundreds of loyal followers already, so check it out if you haven’t already.
Prior to HoopsThink’s launch, I taught an online career strategy class to several students who want to work in basketball. I’m grateful to have a great group of students who went through the program and got great results, getting work as team managers and scouts in there area. I’m working on putting together an expanded version of this class–get in touch with me if you’re interested in hearing more.
My wife and I relocated from Las Vegas to Portland, OR, a move we’re really enjoying. I lived here back in 2010 and I’ve always loved the area. Reach out to me if you’re in town and would like to get together.
I did another AMA on reddit last month, with this one centered around the NBA Trade Deadline. Hundreds of great questions and comments from the smart basketball fans over there, so make sure you check out the AMA.
