Elevator (Doors) Pitch: I Should Be Your NBA Blogs Occult Editor


Of all the off-season moves that the basketball world endured this year, some of the biggest ones were done by the blogging community. Blogging networks expanded and became more niche. Established blogs decided to become more expansive in their coverage.

SBNation created social media managers for their team sites to live blog games and events. Hardwood Paroxysm expanded their network, creating individual blogs for advance stats, photoshopping and humor.

So here’s my pitch: Your NBA Blog needs some sinister coverage. And I’ll tell you why:


How many times can you live tweet Space Jam? It’s true the Venn Diagram of pop culture and basketball have limited options, but why stop there? Let me draw parallels between David Lynch and Phil Jackson. Or add the mysticism of Alejandro Jodoworsky into your posts. A dash of post-apocalyptic prose never hurt anybody.

Spooky shit is cool

Did you know there are haunted hotels that teams force their visitors to stay in when they travel to that city? Did you know there are curses in basketball? I mean you probably did, but you don’t have time to investigate because you’re watching PER rise and fall like the harvest moon.

Narrative Narrative Narrative

The basketblog world is getting smaller, but the stories are being eaten up left and right. Your blog will need new ways to digest, process and explain the stories of the NBA.


Did I just say the same thing three times? Basically yes, but so are all those other blogs out there, at least I will throw in some solid horror movie and black metal references to keep their eyes from glassing over.
