I am proud to announce that in the last week I have been added to the team over at http://fanfeedr.com, where I will be making daily posts about things going on around the NBA as part of the fanfeedr Hot Takes team. Thanks to Shlomo Sprung, founder of SprungOnSports for bringing me on at fanfeedr. Should be exciting to have Mindless Dribble and SprungOnSports dishing out the latest NBA updates.
Things have been pretty exciting in Israel so far this year, as my team Maccabi Rishon Lezion made it to the finals of the Israeli State Cup (read about it here) and have been putting up a nice season so far at 10-7 in Israeli league play. I’ve been fortunate enough to be a part of a great coaching staff, with a roster loaded with team-first players that have made my first year being fully involved with a team an excellent learning experience. Between the practices, film sessions and meetings with the coaches I have been lucky to learn a great deal about basketball and life every day over the last year.
My weekly column with http://SheridanHoops.com has been a big success as well, as several of my columns have been posted on hoopshype and other sports news services around the web. I’d like to give a big thanks to Chris Sheridan for giving me honest and constructive feedback throughout the last few months, and for giving me a level of exposure that would be quite difficult to achieve on my own.
I would like to thank all of you who have been following my work for the last year, that have been so supportive since I started Mindless Dribble last February. It has been exciting going from being a college student starting a small basketball blog to diving head first into the world of professional basketball, and I know it would be impossible to achieve anything without the support of my family, friends and all of the kind folks around the net that have taken the time to read my work. I hope that you continue to share my work via social media and keep the conversations flowing!
Since I currently am writing for multiple websites, I will be posting links to my works throughout the web on Mindless Dribble, in addition to content from Kirk Berger, Aviel Weinstein, Phil Tafet, Oren Salomon (who deserves a special Thanks for providing ongoing inspiration since I got into the writing game) as well as several guest writers. If you would be interested in writing for Mindless Dribble or just want to talk some hoops, feel free to shoot me over an email at AJMitnick@mindlessdribble.net.
