My name is Matthew Carnahan. I’m a fan off mostly every sport that exists but the NBA has and will always be my favorite. Growing up I never really had a favorite team, I had favorite players. Those players ranged from Lebron James to Kobe Bryant to Steve Nash . I believe the NBA is the easiest sport to have favorite players in as it’s easier to build familiarity with them when they’re not wearing a helmet or mask. I’ve had a lifelong love for the NBA and it’s why i’m so passionate when it comes to covering it.
