Love the NBA and really the entire world of basketball? Enjoy writing and blogging? Want to join the brand new Small Teaser Sports circle, have a worldwide platform to share your views and get paid to do it? Then this is the opportunity for you!


The “Sports Circle” is a recently established community that uses the innovative Small Teaser blogging platform. Within the Sports Circle we're launching sub-communities, which is where you would come in: the basketball community.

We would like to offer daily news, opinions, stats and analysis on all that makes up the National Basketball Association. You can cover the NBA from any specific angle you would like. Whether it's a statistical deep-dive into advanced player analytics or simply a top-10 highlight video reel of last night's games, we're giving you total creative freedom. 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.

Our writers craft their own headlines and work at their own leisure. That freedom is priceless and makes the sportswriting journey that much more enjoyable.


  • 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

  • Experienced, available FanSided employees to provide 1-on-1 feedback and guidance every day of the year
  • The opportunity to have your work read by other like-minded basketball fans. We actively promote and boost every one of your pieces on social media


Interested? All you need to do is email me your cover letter and tell me why you'd be a great addition to our community. Make sure to add your (relevant) experience level in regards to basketbal writing and blogging. Please include links to your existing blogposts or other online platforms where your “passion” for basketbal is on display!
