Nate Parham is a long time NBA fan whose newfound interest in women's basketball led him to managing SBN's Swish Appeal, which covers the WNBA and women's college basketball around the nation. In addition to contributing to Swish Appeal and Golden State of Mind, he has been a women's basketball contributor for the Capital One Cup and espnW.

Nate has covered the WNBA's Seattle Storm as well as the Seattle University Redhawks and Washington Huskies men's and women's basketball teams. Since returning to the Bay Area, he has wandered around covering things from NBA summer league to Pac-12 and WCC women's basketball.

As a Bay Area native, he is unfortunately cursed with a love for the Golden State Warriors, which is only partially offset by the resurgence of the San Francisco 49ers.

2014 NBA free agency rumors: Kent Bazemore searching for 'a chance to prove' himself


"It was an unfortunate situation for myself with Golden State, I did make the team, but they were so guard heavy... I was fortunate enough to go down to LA, where there were a lot of minutes out there on the floor and I was able to kind of show [what I can do]... My [sample] size is very small. I just need a chance to prove myself again, so minutes are definitely the first thing I’m after. Everything else is just basketball. You hear a lot of guys talking about the bad cities of the NBA and all of that, but a guy like me, I just want another opportunity to go out there and show that I can really be a great player in this league."

From Bazemore Weighs Free Agency Options via Alex Kennedy of Basketball Insiders.

The Golden State Warriors are among the teams pursuing free agent Kent Bazemore, but their already-crowded guard rotation makes it extremely unlikely that he'll return to the Bay.

In any event, the whole interview is great - it's really hard not to root for this guy.

Rumor: LeBron is part of Warriors' motivation to pursue Kevin Love?


...I think the Warriors are very motivated to get Kevin Love in part I think not just because he’s an upgrade over David Lee, but in part because I think that now that you can have a Steph Curry and you have a Kevin Love, I think they feel at that point that they could be credible suitors for LeBron James.

From ESPN’s Chad Ford: Warriors want Kevin Love so they can make ‘compelling case’ for LeBron James by Diamond Leung of the Bay Area News Group.

Now they're just toying with us...

Ford also suggests that it's Harrison Barnes - not Klay Thompson - holding up the deal at this point, as tweeted previously by Jerry Zgoda,
