Though I live on the East Coast, I am still a major Warriors fan. I claim that I am the person who advised the Warriors to trade for a center; Andrew Bogut and not sign DeAndre Jordan or Tyson Chandler because of a phone call I had with owner Joe Lacob two offseasons ago. If you like my work great. You can read more of it at oldfashioned3.sportsblog.com and bustasports.com . If you don't like my work than you can follow me on twitter @benpickman and tweet hate at me.

We aren't called FanSided for nothing. Our network of sports, entertainment and lifestyle sites are powered by fans that want to cover their passions! Whether you are just looking to get your start in online media or you want to contribute to your favorite site as a hobby, FanSided wants to hear from you.
Our work is regularly featured on SI.com and Bleacher Report and many FanSided writers have gone on to work full-time in online media. FanSided hired over ten of its own writers in 2013 and there are currently FanSided alums working at other major media outlets and with professional sports teams.
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.
