Founder and Editor-in-Chief
Dunlap, Michael (Twitter: @iambabyd13)
I wear many hats. I will become a father for the first time in July 2013. My work career started as an umpire, evolved to a blackjack dealer and has settled as a sportswriter. You could say I’m used to getting yelled at. I love me some Minnesota Timberwolves but currently call Phoenix home. I’m an eight handicap and a terrible leaper.
Watson, Phil (Twitter: @furtherreview) http://afrmediaonline.com
I am a veteran of 20-plus years in the newspaper industry as a writer and editor, with my roots as a sports writer and later in my career transitioning to news. I also assisted with the development and maintenance of a newspaper website and also have experience in the advertising arena. I am currently a self-employed sports commentator with a syndicated radio show and blog.
Anderson, Andrew (Twitter: @3MW_Andy)
26 year old, Australian sports writer. Currently completing a Diploma of Sports Journalism, covering the NBA and starting a freelance writing career. Will cover everything Boston Celtics but dip into the rest of the league too. October-June the NBA runs my life, watching it, writing about it, playing fantasy, 2K etc.. drive the wifey nuts.

Bourguet, Gerald (Twitter: @geraldbourguet)
Gerald has been an NBA fan since the day he could say “Michael Jordan” and loves writing about the league from any and every angle. He is a recent graduate from the Walter Cronkite School at Arizona State University and has a Bachelor’s and Master’s degree in journalism. Gerald deals with his Suns-related depression through his writing and eagerly awaits the day when Phoenix hoists a championship banner, sometime in 2055.

Hobbs, Frankie (Twitter: @goonerfrank)
An avid NBA fan from the United Kingdom. Currently in my last year at school, before hopefully studying journalism at university. Keen follower of the Philadelphia 76ers since the days of “The Answer”. Basketball offers me a nice break from watching my beloved Arsenal continue to break my heart.
