Tom Ballhausen – Writer

A basketball traditionalist and a Jared Sullinger apologist, Tom is a Celtics fan and loves all pro-Luka content. Brand new to the writing scene, he is keen to show his appreciation of the low post big man and classic 90’s jerseys.

Louis Hood – Writer

By far the worst handles of the Jumper Network team but makes up for it by throwing elbows in the paint, espousing the virtues of the shorter basketball shorts and reminiscing about the ‘good old days’ of Lob City. A sucker for a spicy trade rumour and Australians dominating the NBA.

James Aloi – Writer

A lover of stats and bold predictions, James travelled to the US just for the NBA, saw 10 games in 30 days and watched the Knicks go 0-4 by an average of 20 points. He is a long-suffering Timberwolves fan, and his opinions will rival that of Colin Cowherd.
