Khaleel Abdullah

NBA Writer

Hello. My name is Khaleel. I was born and raised in Phoenix, Arizona and am a big-time AZ sports guy. My favorite team is the Phoenix Suns, even though the last decade has been pretty difficult. I do believe we are on the right path now and I hope to see them playing competitive basketball and getting back to the playoffs soon. That seems like a far fetched dream right now, especially with how loaded the Western Conference is but anything is possible. My favorite Sun is Devin Booker and my favorite non-Sun is Giannis Antetokounmpo aka the Greek Freak. I am happily married, just celebrating my 10th anniversary, and a father of three adorable children.

I'm a former college basketball player and I've loved the NBA since I was a kid.  I graduated from LaGrange College in 2018 and I am currently working in accounting and doing some basketball training on the side.  I am so excited to translate my knowledge and love for the NBA into some content.
