Bulls Conf Faithful,
When I took over as the editor of Bulls Confidential in January, I was thrilled to be able to join this community and oversee the operations of this blog. My goal was to continue to make Bulls Confidential a fantastic resource for smart readers, and provide unique takes and insightful analysis of the team we all love. In addition, I wanted to challenge myself as a writer and basketball thinker and take pride in the work I shared with you all.
Even though it’s only been a short time, I’ve gained a great appreciation for what it takes to be in charge of something and the investment it takes to work with and edit the projects of some really bright writers. These opportunities have been paramount in my growth as a writer and have given me a chance to pursue this passion of mine. I’m so grateful for that.
In that vain, I have some bittersweet news: I will be stepping down as the owner and editor of this site and joining The Athletic Chicago as a contributing writer and podcast host. Not only is this a great opportunity for me to continue to develop as a writer with an exciting new website, but for Mark Karantzoulis as well, who will be officially taking over Bulls Conf responsibilities.
The past few weeks especially, Mark has kept the blog alive as I’ve transitioned jobs and living situations. As you well know, Mark is an incredibly gifted basketball mind and has the skill and craft to turn those thoughts into blog posts. He’s dedicated to this; he cares deeply about his writing, and this community. He will continue to build on the success we’ve had over the past months -- during which time we’ve seen growth in our readership and social media following. Mark is great and will do great things for Bulls Conf. You’re in good hands.
Most importantly, I want to thank you all for taking time from your day to read my work. I really hope to do this professionally one day, and sharing my words with you and receiving your feedback has been invaluable. I am truly grateful for your support.
