In early 2006 at the urging of some friends, I launched ClipperBlog. The Clippers were an interesting team at the time, but there was relatively little in the way of in-depth analysis and thoughtful discussion. Mike Fiske built the site from scratch, and we were off.
Over time as life became busier and the demand for content grew, we added a number of outstanding contributors. D.J. Foster and Breene Murphy kept ClipperBlog afloat for a number of years, and the staff gradually expanded to include Charlie Widdoes, Andrew Han, Jordan Heimer, Jovan Buha, Michael Shagrin, Nick Flynt, Fred Katz and Krai Charuwatsuntorn.
Bringing new contributors aboard is important to the lifeblood of any publication, not only because writers move on, but because it needs fresh voices and new ideas. That’s true whether that publication resides in the digital realm or belongs to some other medium.
In that spirit, ClipperBlog is looking for new contributors.
There are no mandatory requirements. We appreciate people who like to advance knowledge with data and, more important, can impart that wisdom in a breezy, accessible way. We also like storytellers, those who can study the team and identify a narrative thread the rest of us may not have immediately recognized. ClipperBlog likes video elements, humorists, x’s and o’s and the art of the list.
We just have a couple of questions:
- From your perspective, what are the more compelling themes surrounding the Clippers this season? What are they and why should a general NBA fan care?
- What will a digital publication of this scope that serves sports fans look like in five years?
- What specifically is prompting you to answer this post?
Of course, please feel free to send writing submissions if you wish.
