Say hello to Magic Basketball’s version of the Big Three™.
MBN has been in existence for nearly a year and since the NBA is quickly entering a “superteam” era, I figured I’d throw my hat in the ring and create a team of writers that will be bringing their talents to this site on a regular basis.
Nate Drexler is a senior at Covenant College, a small liberal arts school located in Chattanooga, Tennessee. Nate is a history major, finishing up a long educational journey highlighted by intramural basketball and sports writing. Nate’s joy of watching basketball stemmed from watching Larry Hughes at St. Louis University, where his father was a season ticket holder during that era. And yes, Nate is familiar with this notoriously funny website.
Danny Nowell is a senior at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, where he plies his trade as a creative writing student. Danny is working on his Honors thesis in fiction, a collection of short stories, with the hopes of publishing and pursuing a Master in Fine Arts. When he isn’t too busy combining his interests as a writer and zeal for basketball to produce good writing revolving around the sport, Danny directs an improv comedy team on campus.
Danny and Nate bring a unique set of gifts to the table, and I hope that their rich prose combined with my analytical approach will create a steady stream of quality written content that you, the readers, will enjoy.
Their roles will be as contributing writers, in which they’ll take an expansive look at not only the Orlando Magic but the NBA as a whole.
So without further ado, I’d like to welcome Danny and Nate to Magic Basketball.
