Musaab Nadeem

NBA Writer

Growing up in the Bay Area, I was surrounded by Warriors fans, but my basketball allegiance has always lied with the Lakers. As a kid, I loved watching Shaq and Kobe dominate the league, and I was absolutely devastated when Shaq was traded away to Miami. It was then that my all-time favorite NBA player became Kobe Bryant. Now, as Dub Nation reigns supreme, I write about what I believe the Lakers can do to in order to get No. 17!

I have been involved in sport media writing with previous stops at and creating and developing my own sport blog Basketball has always been an integral part of my life, having a claim to fame of being a back to back intramural champion at York College.  Growing up as a life ling Knicks fans, watching them play on a nightly basis has always been a joy of mine despite their performances in recent years. I aspire to further develop my development as a sport writer to give readers an informed perspective of the recent NBA news.

Olivier Auguste

NBA Writer

Olivier is an Adelphi University Alumnus with two years' experience within IBM's Global Business Services. He's merged business and creative capacities, looking to pivot into the sports industry. In addition to freelance writing, he is focused on breaking grounds within the NBA landscape. Olivier dreamed of performing in the NBA as an athlete, but fell short. He knew basketball served a greater purpose in his life, and it is coming to fruition through the art of writing. Olivier began playing the game of basketball at age 7. Soon after, he moved from Ottawa, Ontario to Brooklyn, NY. A four year varsity athlete, Olivier merited some D3 offers, but ultimately chose to attend Adelphi University. His fire for the game never diminished. As one grows older, you realize you do not have to settle, instead pursue your passions as far and wide as possible.
