Seeking Part-Time Writers For New NBA Rumors Website

I'm making my first foray into another sport, as we're launching a new NBA rumors website early in 2012, in the mold of MLBTR.  Luke Adams will be the site's full-time writer and editor, and we're looking to build a team of part-time contributors who will be paid hourly.  The criteria:

  • Knowledge of all 30 NBA teams, no discernible bias. Knowledge of transaction-related concepts.
  • Writing experience is necessary and online writing experience is preferred.
  • Attention to detail – absolutely no spelling errors, especially for player and journalist names.  Ability to follow the site's style and tone.
  • Ability to analyze articles and craft intelligent, well-written posts summing up the news in a few paragraphs.  We need the best of both worlds: quick writing with thoughtful analysis.  You must be able to add value to breaking news with your own insight, numbers, or links to other relevant articles.
  • Ability to use an RSS feed reader such as Google Reader.  Ability to use Twitter.  Both of these are crucial.
  • Strong evening availability – typically 5-11pm central time shifts.  Writers covering Monday through Friday evenings will change week to week, but we'd also like people to regularly take specific weekend daytime shifts.
  • At least some college education is required.
  • If you're interested, email basketballapplications@gmail.com and take a couple paragraphs to explain how you qualify and stand out. Many will likely apply, so unfortunately we cannot respond to most applications.
