HoopsThink rolling along; March Update

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 am taking on new web design clients too. I recently finished a new website for The HOOP SCOOP. If you’re in need for a new site, send me an email.
  • 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.

Through HoopsThink, I’ll bring on basketball experts as guests. We’ll explore core strategies and fundamentals of the game that are often ignored by mainstream analysts.

My goal is to help fans enjoy basketball more through a deeper understanding of the game.
