FAQ #7:  Who is Basketball Intelligence’s main audience?

Answer:  Our only “target” is folks who are interested in reading the best daily NBA reporting and analysis, w/o having to slog through the “chaff” to find it.  Other than that, we didn’t have any particular group in mind when we started publishing. It turns out that that there is a broad cross-section of Assn followers who subscribe, ranging from casual fans through team owners (and everywhere in between: hardcore fans, fantasy hoops players, media members, current players, retired players, head and assistant coaches, team GMs and other execs).  It is gratifying that such a wide spectrum cares about intelligent reporting and analysis.
