Meet the Team

Editor-in-Chief: Derek Kramer

My primary goal when I started in July 2015 was to provide informed, concise, creative content in all things pertaining to the Indiana Pacers, striving to be more than simple clickbait and to give readers a reason to want to come back.

I graduated from Anderson University in 2011 with a degree in Journalism, and I’ve loved the Pacers since I was six years old watching Reggie Miller battle the New York Knicks in the playoffs. During the day, I teach 5th-graders how to do 5th-grade things. In the night, I watch, tweet, and write about the Indiana Pacers. I also have a strange resemblance to Italian shooting guard Marco Belinelli.

Born and raised in Greenwood, I graduated from IUPUI in 2017 with a degree in Computer Information Techonology. My days consist of balancing a wife, three kids, a full-time job with multiple side gigs, and trying to get as much basketball as I can to fill in the gaps. The Pacers are definitely my priority, but I watch as much of the other 29 teams as possible to stay well rounded. Oshae Brissett is my basketball spirit animal, and I’ll happily tell you why your fake trade makes no sense for either side.

I love merging the art and the science of basketball, and I try to address multiple sides of an argument with stats and analysis. That usually turns into pretty lengthy pieces, but I prefer reading that over a couple hundred words with the end goal being little more than a click…so I try to return the favor. I also do a lot with fantasy basketball, and I try to use that statistical lean as a springboard for projections and digging into why something might be the way it is.
