Every now and again, we Moneyball staffers are privy to numbers which illuminate just how massive the Maverick audience is. It's enormous and these reminders are excellent for those of us who spend entirely too much time on twitter in our own little basketball universe.
But here's the thing, that basketball Twitterverse is amazing. It's quite literally the biggest sports bar on the planet. And we want more people to show up to that sports bar. On any given day during the basketball season, you can log on to Twitter and see people talking hoops. We want you to consider joining us.
With that in mind, we've prepared a handy guide to get you started!
It's us! We tweet stories, live tweet during games, and are a hub for our writers.
Follow the staff too: @tim_cato, @beccaaftersix, @Boweman55, @HalBrownNBA and @SmitheeMMB. There's also @TheKobeBeef,
Goodness, there are a lot of us.
The Rest of the Mavs Blogosphere
There are also a ton of other great Mavericks sites and writers out there. There's @BallinWithBryan of MavsOutsider (here's the whole staff list... you MUST follow @BobbyKaralla or @Jga41agher). Then there's @FishSports, leader of DallasBasketball.com. He has a massive staff, including cap expert @Lord_DBdotcom and injury info guru @RotowireATC.
The Traditional Media Folks
There's also the traditional media guys, each of whom is pretty fantastic: @MFollowill and @SkinWade, as well as @ESPN_MacMahon, @ESPNSteinLine, @JTT_ESPNDallas, and @DwainPrice. There's the voice of the Mavs @CoopMavs and @ESefko too
The Hardcore Fans
Lastly there are a number of great fans. You are probably familiar with former Moneyballer and soon-to-be doctor @AndyTobo. There's @CaitlinInTexas, @J85Royals, and @BeevoMav. We try to get these guys to write now and then, but they're pretty busy tweeting and being awesome. You should also follow our former boss, LJRotter. She held the fort here at Mavs Moneyball for YEARS and this site wouldn't be here without her.
I probably forgot some Mavericks people, so let me know in the comments OR just join Twitter and yell at us like everyone else does.
Mavericks Players on Twitter/Instagram/Etc.
Here you go, in one handy dandy place. Some players are more active than others. Dirk is great on Twitter, Chandler Parsons you may have heard does well with Instagram, as does Tyson Chandler. Jae Crowder tweets in all-caps, which I still don't quite get, but it's fun. And if you haven't perused Charlie Villanueva's blog, it's worth a peek.
