All you need to know about me, for the purposes of a blog like this, is that if you want to win your fantasy basketball league, you should listen to what I say. I’ve been in more than a dozen fantasy basketball leagues in the past five years and have NEVER failed to finish out of the money.
As for my fantasy exploits in other sports, well, that’s for another blog altogether.
However, for a little bit more “credible” background, I’ve worked in the sports media field since 2000 and have spent a majority of the last four NBA seasons covering New Jersey Nets home games (and some Knicks as well). So I’ve spent a large amount of time watching basketball and having tremendous access to players, reporters and NBA staff.
Not much of that is fantasy-relevant, but too much information is never enough.
Why Fantasy Basketball JEDI, of all things? Well, I gew up a Star Wars fan (I was born in 1977, who didn’t?) and although the prequels took care of that fandom, it’s flat out hard finding a name for a fantasy blog. They are all taken (Expert, Guru, Master, etc) so I went with something no one else had. Hopefully, it doesn’t stick.
