The NBA is back and to celebrate we’re releasing our top 10 list of the most influential independent NBA team bloggers.
We compiled our list using a weighted average formula consisting of Twitter followers, Klout score, Alexa, PeerIndex, Google Page Rank and Followerwonk. We looked at those who covered only one specific team, versus those who covered the NBA as a whole.
Congratulations to all the writers on the blogs that made the list. Your voice has filled the gap left by all the big sports websites and newspapers and provided every diehard NBA fan the fix they need for 24/7 coverage of their team. You guys rock.
