Hey everyone -- thanks for stopping by and for your continued support. Since 2010, basketball content has been an obsessive hobby of mine. I've battled graduate school and work to find time for it, and as long-time followers know, my ability to produce content has waned for extended periods because of that. Even now, my contributions for Nylon Calculus and my own website are intermittent, at the mercy of my professional work that pays the bills.

At this point, I want to generate multimedia content like podcasts and video-based analysis, but simply lack the free unpaid time to trade for such endeavors. Much to the chagrin of my close family members, I've staved off subscription-based content or anything of the sort until now. 

So if you've made it this far, maybe you're willing to go a little farther. (Because it's never too early in the day for a Shawshank reference.) I've created two membership tiers: one for general producers and another for insiders that provides access to a small number of additional (but hopefully super valuable!) materials that I don't publish publicly. I'm thinking of any patronage as funding for the Thinking Basketball podcast as well as future statistical work.

Finally, I'm also sensitive to the growing amount of subscription based basketball content on the web. My preference is to keep your contribution small and produce more through volume, so please continue to share my work and Patreon page on twitter, reddit, etc. Thanks again.

PS If I reach 400 patrons, I'll create a new GOAT profile on a player who didn't get a full one for the original series (selected on patron voting, with "Insiders" receiving additional weight in voting.) So if you know 399 other Steph Curry fans, you can make it happen right now.
