Welcome to the launch of Crossover Chronicles.
Ben Koo, Bloguin’s CEO, had thrown out an idea not too long ago about starting a new central NBA blog on Bloguin. The NBA and blogging are two of the things I am most passionate about, so I ended up firing him back a novel of an email with my ideas and what I would do with it.
To my surprise, Ben offered me the managing editor position at this new blog, which you are now reading. We’ve got some great content lined up for you all week, from today through Sunday, and it’s coming from some of the best NBA writers I know.
Before we get into our regular content, I want to introduce you to the writers you will be reading regularly here at Crossover Chronicles.
One of my first duties was to get a staff together. Being the dreamer I am, I scribbled down a list of great writers I know who I have worked with or who I’ve wanted to work with. As I told the guys a few days ago, this is my Dream Team. Dont even ask. Barcelona, of course. I’m happy to say that the staff I’m about to announce were the same names I scribbled down that day.
Rounding out the editorial team with me are Jeff Garcia and Surya Fernandez.
Jeff, who is the Content Editor at Project Spurs, has been right there next to me at Project Spurs for the last six years and is one of the most talented and dedicated individuals I’ve ever had the honor of working with. Surya is the Managing Editor of Hot Hot Hoops. Surya covers every angle when it comes to the Miami Heat and he’s looking forward to doing the same for Crossover Chronicles.
The rest of the staff is made up of John Karalis, Editor-in-Chief of Red’s Army, Brendan Bowers, Managing Editor of Stepien Rules and Philip Rossman-Reich, Editor of Orlando Magic Daily.
The entire staff here is made up of editors from some of the best NBA team blogs, and I’m very excited about the potential when bringing that talent together combined with the support of Bloguin.
We’ve got some great content lined up for this week, but you are as important to Crossover Chronicles as we are, so we’d love to hear what you have to say. Whether you agree with our thoughts or go Robert Horry on us and feel like throwing a towel at our face because you couldn’t disagree more, feel free to voice your opinions in the comments.
Again, welcome and we hope you look forward to reading Crossover Chronicles as much as we look forward to writing for you.
