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.

"I thought Faulkner changed the rhythm of the game on the defensive end," said Sky Head Coach Pokey Chatman. "She got the steal in front of me and saved it and ignited something within the team that carried throughout the rest of the game." Faulkner finished her Sky debut with 7 points (3-of-4). Delle Donne led the Sky with 23 points and 5 rebounds, while Breland grabbed 9 boards along with her 13 points and 6 blocks in the game.

From SKY: Sky Fight Off Fever May 16 2014 Awesome to see Faulkner come up big for the Sky in her first game of the season - she was definitely one of the top mid-major prospects coming out this year and it looks like she has a chance to be a significant contributor for the Sky.
