Love the NBA, NCAA and the entire world of basketball? Enjoy writing? Want to join the FanSided network’s most prolific basketball site, have a worldwide platform to share your views and get paid to do it? HoopsHabit.com is for you!


We offer daily news, opinions, stats and analysis on all that makes up the National Basketball Association and the NCAA. You can cover your favorite NBA team for a national website under the Time Inc. brand and get paid to do it. Check out our available positions, as they often change. Have a different idea in mind? Want to focus on Fantasy Basketball, the D-League, International Basketball or something else altogether? Pitch it to us. We’re always looking to improve our team and if you have a way to do that, we’d be happy to listen.

  • Working-level knowledge of the NBA (expert-level preferred)
  • Strong grasp of the basic tenets of writing for an online sports audience (SEO, social media, audience targeting, etc)
  • A true passion for writing and the game of basketball
  • Willingness to think outside the box, putting an original spin on every piece created
  • Ability to write a minimum of eight original pieces per month
  • Must be at least 18 years old


All of our writing positions offer the following:

  • A national platform, reaching over 5.8 million users during 2016
  • Competitive pay-per-pageview revenue sharing (eight published pieces per month minimum) as well as flat-rate payment options
  • Experienced, available FanSided employees to provide 1-on-1 feedback and guidance every day of the year
  • Opportunities to have your work featured by our Time Inc. partners at Sports Illustrated, as well as NBA.com, Bleacher Report, ESPN True Hoop and more
