Come internet with us!
SB Nation's NBA team site covering the New York Knicks is looking for more talent to add to their tremendous staff. We value writers that help enrich discussion on our sites, promote our material on social media and cover everything entailed with basketball. Bring your strong voice and opinions and share your thoughts with the world. Your chance for greatness is at hand.
Joining the exclusive staff of one of our team sites gives you one of the more prominent voices in the basketball community. Team fan bases are always ravenously consuming our material, and you'll have a chance to speak to the masses through our wide-reaching SB Nation platform.
Some of our staff have used their time with us as a springboard into other professional writing gigs with us and other media companies. While that's definitely not the goal of everyone here, it's a beautiful and very real perk for your efforts on the site. Write. Read. Grow.
-The Staff We Need-
Contributor: Game Day Coverage
The staple of SB Nation — one of the reasons people come to us and trust our coverage. There's, at minimum, 90 games to cover every season (don't forget those 8 preseason games!) and maybe even a postseason swath that's even more intensely covered. For every game we have a preview, a live GameThread and post-game coverage that includes a quick recap (posted within a half hour of game's end) and a full recap (in-depth analysis to be posted the next morning).
Someone interested in this type of writing could be involved in all of those aspects or be solely committed to helping with one of them.The people we need helping with this endeavor should be able to write concisely and would operate effectively on a schedule. Creative individuals who enjoy including videos and creating GIFs to enhance their analysis are especially encouraged to apply. Much like the News Reporting, Game Day Coverage usually provides the jumpstart for conversations and sets the tone after a win or loss.
Game Day coverage is generally shared among the site staff and involves both preview and recap duties.
Contributor: Features and Analysis
There's obviously a ton of material that can be self generated on each team and isn't reliant on news or game play for inspiration. We have all types of content flavors on our sites: film breakdowns, trade speculation, reaction to pop culture, silly lists, game diaries, and statistical analysis.
Perhaps your forte isn't NBA X's & O's, we still have a bevy of outlets into which you can pour your writer's soul. Or maybe you've got a brand new idea for the site that you want to develop — we're always on the lookout for passion and opinions. Ideally, people who are interested in this role would have some prior writing/blogging experience and be able to write lengthier pieces. These types of articles aren't as time-sensitive as the news and game coverage.
