I had the privilege of working as a basketball scout and consultant for college and NBA teams from early 2012 until fairly recently.
Publicly, I wrote about basketball scouting for a website I founded called HoopsThink.com, and published a free basketball scouting guide called The Basketball Scout’s Cheat Sheet: The 4 Pillars of Effective Scouting.
If you’re reading this post, there’s a good chance you met me through that work.
I had a great time with it. I liked being able to make an impact for teams, and help aspiring scouts and players in the process.
But that work dwindled in the last couple years, and more importantly, so did my passion for it.
I recently made the decision to close down HoopsThink and step away from basketball to focus on my other interests, including my freelance website design business and my service on City Council in Yachats.
I’m trying to fill up my life more with hobbies and projects that interest me greatly, and it took a while for me to admit to myself that basketball stopped falling into that category some time ago.
Because I archived the HoopsThink content on this blog, you can still read it at your leisure. The links above (in this post) are a good place to start.
