Editorial Staff

Brett David Roberts, editor

Brett David Roberts, 33, has been credentialed NBA media for Yahoo!, a featured columnist at B/R; and has served as FanSided editor of Hardwood Houdini, Presto in the Paint and is now editor of Space City Scoop. A former D-3 forward at Centre College in Danville, he's just a Kentucky boy making it rain at the park now. While Central Florida was a long-time home to BDR, he's embraced life in Western Kentucky but has yet to affiliate himself with Wildcat or Cardinals fandom. It's a big decision for Kentuckians. Second person bios are as fun as they are strange...Never hesitate to take big shots; it's the ones you passed on that will keep you up at night.

Caleb Sawyer, Staff Writer

I've been a Houston Rockets enthusiast ever since I first played basketball. I'm kind of like a Van Gundy though, not so much talent on the court, but plenty of insight on the finer points of the game. It's like they say, those who can't do teach. My ultimate goal is to provide readers with a different and insightful viewpoint about the game and team we all love.

About FanSided

FanSided was born in 2007, when two brothers felt that their favorite team, the Kansas City Chiefs, was being under-covered by the mainstream media. Taking matters into their own hands, they launched Arrowhead Addict, a move that would spawn a network of over 290 fan-powered unique sports and entertainment sites dedicated to team-specific, sport-specific, genre-specific, and fanbase-specific coverage.

From sports, movies and TV to lifestyle and tech, FanSided has you covered.
