Josh is a hoops, music and TV sitcom fanatic who survives primarily on copious amounts of pasta. He fell in love with basketball when his mum and dad showed him Larry Bird footage at a young age.
Nick provides us with a rather unique look at basketball, often merging cultural moments from videogames and cinema with on court and sometimes off court actions in the NBA. He’s our Google Analytics guru; the perfect accompaniment to a digital league and sport. Oh, and he used to work for FIBA Media.
