About Me

Hi, Hello, and Welcome to Simply Ballin

If you ever been called a casual, didn't know what to say during an basketball debate, or simply found yourself unable to talk ball? Well, if the answer is yes to any of those questions, then you're in the right place. Simply Ballin will deepen your basketball knowledge! You will become an expert in basketball! But, before diving into the how, let me just introduce myself real quick.

I'm John - just a fan who wants to talk basketball

I'm a college student who loves and wants to talk basketball. That's it.

I have been following the NBA since around the 2014-15 season, but I was just like the majority of fans watching sports; I was a casual fan. It wasn't until my final year at school where I've found a basketball app, Hardwood Amino. It was there that I found my passion for sports writing, and eventually, content creation.

I've spent just over a year of consuming and writing a ludicrous amount of basketball content. The type of blogs included:

  • Covering the Miami Heat
  • Weekly thoughts
  • Ranking draft classes
  • Making GOAT case

It was after that experience where I've managed to get an opportunity to write for All U Can Heat and Hoops Habit. I had an amazing time working with other great writers and it was a great experience that allowed me to improve as a writer and as a basketball fan.

After some time covering the Miami Heat and the Los Angeles Clippers on those two website, I wanted a platform to simply allow me to write about basketball on any topic that I would like. This has changed, however.

The goal isn't just to allow me to write my thoughts and have "a" platform. Now, I want to build "the" platform for basketball. I want to expand the team and grow Simply Ballin to being the ultimate go-to for basketball content. Everything you need in one place. This means that my posts won't just be my analysis, but it will be a curation of the top highest-quality basketball content from many amazing writers.

This isn't about me anymore; it's about you and helping you become the best basketball fan you can be. And to do that, there are three type of content you will see: Player Focus, Team Focus, and Thoughts & Discussion. In addition to the written content, there will be a YouTube channel and a podcast to go with it.

Well, this is everything you need to know about me and Simply Ballin. If you have any questions or simply want to connect and talk ball, you can find me on twitter @JohnJablonka_ and if you have any other questions, be sure to check out the contact page.
