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.
Our Mike Miller is not the Mike Miller picked 5th overall by the Orlando Magic in the 2000 NBA Draft. He is in fact one of our podcast hosts and a Lead Writer. He loves beards, begrudgingly respects James Harden, writes a weekly NBA column for GiveMeSport and contributes to Sporting News (FIBA). He’s also represented us as an analyst on Sky Sports, BBC Radio 5 Live, ESPN’s Head in the Game podcast and Love Sport Radio.
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.
