What is UT Jazz Beats?
This site is your stop for all things Utah Jazz. I post post-game stories with analysis of play, predictions for the future, and general thoughts about the state of the team. From time to time there are stories beyond the post-game, especially during the summer. There are also stories about the NBA as a whole available to my patrons.
Why should you listen to me?
You shouldn’t, probably. I’m not pretending to be a reporter here. I don’t have the access to the team that our present beat writers do. You should definitely go and support them and read their work as well. But what I do offer is an unfettered look at Utah Jazz basketball from the lens of a life-long fan.
Basketball is my passion. From a very young age I knew that I could retreat to the front yard to shoot hoops whenever things were getting tough or whenever I needed some excitement. Basketball kept me sane. It gave me friends and mentors. It taught me more about life than most experiences I’ve had and I vowed that I would always do what I could to give back to it. I’m no scout. I got cut from my high school team. But I’ve never left the game. I joined my own team and went on to an undefeated season after years of winless ball. I play often and watch the game even more. I’m the person friends come to when they want to know about a specific player in the league, or when they want to talk shop about the Jazz’s title chances. I want to share my passion with you. If you want to read from an impassioned fan who knows her stuff, then you’ve found the right place.
How can I support you?
I’m so glad you asked. This is currently solely a hobby for me. Though I plan to write after each game, I can’t always guarantee that I will be able to. I would love to write more, get closer to the team, and provide you with more content than you could ask for. If you want to help out you can pledge to be my patron over on my Patreon page. This will get you full access to everything on the site, including the non-Jazz related stories.
