I've got the Basketball Jones. All the time. Every day I'm cruising the NBA news looking for the latest rumors, stats and stories. I've both watched and played basketball for most of my life, and I doubt that's ever going to change.

I'm the newly-appointed Featured Columnist for the Toronto Raptors, and that's perfect, because I'm Canadian, and they're definitely Canada's team. I love watching them play, but I'm not afraid to give my opinion on them and back it up with sound reasoning and basketball logic. I'll also be writing for other NBA teams and the league as a whole, and I promise to always deliver a quality product to the fans here on B/R.

The most important thing you need to know about me is this: I believe stats and analytics have their place in the game, but to truly write about basketball you need to first understand how the game is played and how those numbers and philosophies actually translate onto the court.

Fans know this, and I guarantee you I'll always bring that basketball knowledge as well as the fan's perspective to every article I write.

Hope you enjoy, and thanks for reading.

    Congrats on being named a FC for the Toronto Raptors, Justin! Welcome to the club. It's a very small club, but it's a club nonetheless.

    Thanks for becoming a fan, Justin! I really enjoy your work on B/R, how are you liking writing here? Couldn't agree with you more about stats and analytics being important, but not the end all, be all to writing about basketball, and sports in general really. You excited for the Raptors this season? I grew up in LA so I've always rooted for the Lakers, but ultimately I love how competitive the NBA has become. Stay in touch and feel free to reach out with any questions about the site!
