NBA Writers Needed: HoopsHabit is Expanding Again (Plus NCAA!) is expanding again and we’re looking for some more NBA writers (and NCAA). We’re already the biggest, baddest basketball site on the FanSided network, but we want more! If you’re an experienced writer (or an extremely sharp beginner) who’s looking for a national platform to share your basketball analysis, we want you!

Our vision is to have an exclusive writer for each of the 30 NBA teams, plus some general writers who cover issues that span the entire league. While we’re at 34 writers as of June 3, 2014, we still have some holes to fill. The types of positions we have are listed below:

  • Team-specific Writer (current open teams are the Bobcats, Rockets, Grizzlies, Bucks, Wolves, Pelicans, Kings and Jazz)
  • General NBA Writer (focusing on league-wide issues, rankings, lists, etc.)
  • NCAA Writer (we’re delving deeper into the NCAA this season so pretty much anything goes)
  • Fill Needs Writer (you’ll rotate through assignments depending on site needs/trends)

We are heading into the offseason, but that doesn’t mean we aren’t pushing as hard as ever. We already generate approximately 90 pieces of content each week but we want to go well into triple digits. In May of 2014, we surpassed 650,000 page views and are looking to cross a million in June. Why does that matter? I must have forgotten.


Everyone on staff who writes more than eight pieces per month shares in our revenue. We pay everyone $1.00 per 1000 of their page views. It’s not going to pay your mortgage, but we have multiple authors who earn from $50-100 and even more each month. As we grow, so will your earnings. All you have to do is hit your deadlines and write eight pieces…not too tough!

Sound like something you’d be interested in? Head on over to the official application area at Make sure to mention HoopsHabit as the site you’re interested in.

If you have any other questions, you can contact Michael Dunlap, our Founder and Editor-in-Chief at mdunlap (at)

Looking forward to hearing from you!
