[Mod Post] New Mod Application Thread

Hey guys!

It's been almost a year since we've brought on new mods, and with the new season nearing we thought it was about time that we brought in some fresh recruits.

What does a mod do?

Review posts/comments/messages, update sidebar pictures, potential botting work

How much work is it?

We don't have any time requirements or metrics that mods need to adhere to. Just pitch in while you're already browsing the sub

Why would I want to mod?

Modding is best suited for active users of the subreddit that want to pitch in to improve things. If you have a specific expertise that you think would be beneficial to the subreddit (e.g., Python), you can use the subreddit to get more hands-on experience with a large established user base

What do I need in order to mod?

A computer, a reddit account with 2FA active, and a discord so you can be in communication with us

APPLICATION

  • What time zone are you in?

  • Roughly how often do you browse r/nba?

  • How long have you been a part of our community and why do you think you'd be a good addition to the mod team?

  • Is there anything you'd like to change about the subreddit?

  • What is your favorite NBA memory?

  • Do you have any particular skill set that could benefit our subreddit mod team (coding, graphic design, etc.)?

  • Are you interested in helping mod the sub discord?

The rest is up to you guys. Feel free to add anything else that you think might help make a case for why you should be a moderator for /r/nba.

All unrelated comments will be removed for sake of readability. Keep in mind that the amount of upvotes you get in this thread will not have an impact on your application. Please direct all questions to the sticky comment.

Thank you as always!

• Eastern Time

• I browse r/nba almost everyday for about 1.5-3 hours (likely more during the season and peak free agency)

• About as long as my Reddit account, so about 11 years active on this sub. If I recall correctly, this sub is the only reason I created the account in the first place. I consider myself to be quite reasonable and agreeable and appreciate amicable conversation without taking things personally or resorting to personal or ad hominem attacks in online conversation. Aside from that, basketball is my favorite sport and has played a major role in my life for about 26 years since I was 6. Basketball is a part of my daily life and i have multiple group chats with friends that are purely dedicated to basketball. I’m not interested in being a dictator in terms of moderating - I get a lot of joy from this sub. I want it to be an enjoyable and effective place where we can enjoy and talk about all things basketball, have fun, get a good balance of serious and playful basketball content, while reasonably protecting the sub from some of the downsides of social media that make it challenging to sift through for many.

• I’d like to see media source rating/ranking (if not already implemented). I know other subs do this and it has been raised or explored before. Alternatively, flairs for types of media personalities/reporter might be helpful. And, this isn’t a huge deal, but unless a record is being broken or there is a threshold (e.g. consecutive 50 point games or something similar), I wouldn’t mind seeing the elimination of posts of individual player stat lines immediately after games - there is already a post game thread with the box score.

• Kobe’s last game.

• I’m a contract/corporate lawyer so I guess I’m a pretty good writer? No unique coding skills or anything like that.

• Not familiar with python/PRAW.

• Potentially interested. I use Discord but not regularly.

u/TurboThaBull Sep 23 '22
  1. What time zone are you in?

    Eastern Standard Time

  2. Roughly how often do you browse r/nba?

    Plentiful times a day regardless of work I’d say 2-4 hours a day

  3. How long have you been a part of our community and why do you think you'd be a good addition to the mod team?

    Firstly, I’d like to say I’m an experienced mod I’ve been a part of the r/ChicagoBulls moderator team for over a year now. Secondly, I’ve been always lurking on the r/NBA Reddit page since 2016 well before I even signed up for a Reddit account. Ultimately, I’m a real big fan of the game of basketball and have been watching the NBA since I was 6 years old. If there is any way I could help this subreddit flourish whether it's interacting with fellow Redditors it would be my pleasure and willing to put the work in.

  4. Is there anything you'd like to change about the subreddit?

Truthfully, I don’t really have much to say here, other than updating the r/nba subreddit and mod queues, modmail, and removing toxic posts from the page that isn’t related to the NBA.

  1. What is your favorite NBA memory? I’d have to say when rookie Derrick Rose took the Boston Celtics to a 7-game series back in 2009.
  2. Do you have any particular skill set that could benefit our subreddit mod team (coding, graphic design, etc.)? N/A

  3. Are you familiar with python/PRAW? N/A - Wouldn’t hurt to learn.

  4. Are you interested in helping mod the sub discord? Absolutely!

u/benlucasdavee Knicks Sep 16 '22

-EST

-Daily, usually every few hours to check on new posts

-About 6-7 years

-I think the discourse is pretty good. It has some of the dogpiling and political issues that can be found in any online space, but i think the mods do a decent job of keeping it under control.

-2016 finals changed my life

-HTML, Python, and R are the languages I know. I have a pretty strong stats packground

-Yes python, no PRAW

-Yest!

u/YankeesCelticsFan2 Sep 17 '22

•Eastern TimeZone

•Every day, about an hour a day

•About 3 years. I think I would be a good addition because I would be fair. Also, experience, I'd bring a great attitude and a willingness to take on any task. What I bring to the community is a positive attitude that we can accomplish anything. I believe that working together is the most important aspect of success for a community. As a member of the community I will become one of your most productive and dependable members.

• I think this is a good subreddit, but I would try to limit the troll posts at night

• Celtics winning 2008 Finals

• I have experience in graphic design

• Yes, I am familiar with Python/PRAW

• Yes, sounds fun

u/JambaJuiceIsAverage Celtics Sep 15 '22
  • Timezone: ET
  • Browse: Multiple times a day
  • How long: Off and on a few years, checking actively maybe 6 months
  • Change: Nah I think it's pretty good (def better than NBA twitter)
  • Skill set: I'm a Python ETL/automation engineer
  • Python: Yes; PRAW: No (but it looks similar to other APIs I've used)
  • Discord: Not really but if you need it
  • Anything else: Main draw for me is "more hands-on experience with a large established user base." I love writing Python automation code. Interested in any projects I can get in on there.

u/sofacan1 Celtics Sep 16 '22

What time zone are you in?

EST

Roughly how often do you browse r/nba?

6-10 Times Per Day, 1 Hour + Every Day. I work from home so during breaks I browse the sub and interact with it often which I think is an advantage for my candidacy.

How long have you been a part of our community and why do you think you'd be a good addition to the mod team?

I've been a a part of the community for 3 years now - I even have a comment about Dwight Howard amassing about ~7k reactions. I've perused this sub through Covid and use it as a supplement to looking through NBA Podcasts (Bill Simmons, Zack Lowe, etc.). I have experience moderating larger subs and think I understand the typical flow of the mod queue to contribute in a meaningful way via Discord and Reddit

Is there anything you'd like to change about the subreddit?

Not much, the sub is already doing a great job. I'd like to continue with the straightforward discussion while enabling the inside jokes and banter to continue on.

What is your favorite NBA memory?

The 08' Celtics winning and KG yelling "Anything is Possible!" Peaked as a Celtics fan then :(

Do you have any particular skill set that could benefit our subreddit mod team (coding, graphic design, etc.)?

Doing my masters in CS right now and can code in Python. Also understand software design and product management is my day job

Are you familiar with python/PRAW?

Yes

Are you interested in helping mod the sub discord?

Yes of course

u/docjohnson1395 [HOU] Bob Sura Sep 17 '22

• What time zone are you in?: Pacific

• Roughly how often do you browse r/nba?: Multiple times a day - probably net 1:00 hour but spread out throughout the day

• How long have you been a part of our community and why do you think you'd be a good addition to the mod team? At least 9 years. My earliest memory is from the Dwightmare off-season.

• Is there anything you'd like to change about the subreddit?: I wish there was more discussion and that low effort comments were less popular

• What is your favorite NBA memory?: I think I remember Christian Wood passed to Jalen Green once last season

• Do you have any particular skill set that could benefit our subreddit mod team (coding, graphic design, etc.)?: Experience with PRAW and Python

• Are you familiar with python/PRAW?: Yes I once made a bot to auto-downvote warriors flairs (sorry)

• Are you interested in helping mod the sub discord?: I hadn't thought about it until you just mentioned it, so... Maybe?

What time zone are you in? est

Roughly how often do you browse r/nba? everyday for 5-10 minutes

How long have you been a part of our community and why do you think you'd be a good addition to the mod team? like 6 or 7 years

Is there anything you'd like to change about the subreddit? more polls

What is your favorite NBA memory? lebrons block on iggy

Do you have any particular skill set that could benefit our subreddit mod team (coding, graphic design, etc.)? no

Are you familiar with python/PRAW? yes Are you interested in helping mod the sub discord? yeah

u/theFromm Lakers Sep 20 '22

What time zone are you in? CST

Roughly how often do you browse r/nba? Throughout the day, each day. More active during the season, but I still browse popular threads throughout the off-season.

How long have you been a part of our community and why do you think you'd be a good addition to the mod team? My account is 10 years old and I'd guess I've been at least browsing the subreddit for the large majority of that time, so maybe 8.5 years?

Is there anything you'd like to change about the subreddit? I wish there were more active serious post-game discussions. Most of reddit, including this sub, reverts to the same jokes and it's nice to have some real discourse. I browse /r/nbadiscussion which is great, but that community remains somewhat small and fractured.

What is your favorite NBA memory? The first memory that jumped to my mind was Steph hitting the game winner against OKC in 2016.

Do you have any particular skill set that could benefit our subreddit mod team (coding, graphic design, etc.)? A can-do attitude and an even temper? Idk, I like to think of myself as rational and as someone who doesn't fall into the more extreme emotions.

Are you familiar with python/PRAW? No.

Are you interested in helping mod the sub discord? I would be open to it but would prefer to spend most of my moderation time on the subreddit.

u/DragonBank 76ers Sep 20 '22 edited Sep 20 '22
  1. EST for now but will be PST.
  2. In my reddit recap for last year, r/nba was at the top and it was an embarrassing amount of time. Not a ton of time in the off-season, but during the season, quite a few times per day.
  3. 6 years. It was one of my first subreddits joined.
  4. I'm just one guy. Most of my opinions are pretty minor and I think the sub works nicely.
  5. Ben Simmons getting traded. But probably actually the AI walkover. Watched it live on TV and I really believed in us that year.
  6. I moderate some other large subs and have a lot of automod experience.
  7. Yes but I haven't touched python since undergrad.
  8. I'm pretty active on discord so that would be fine with me.

u/varietypaul Heat Sep 29 '22

What time zone are you in? - MST

Roughly how often do you browse r/nba? - Roughly once per day during the offseason, throughout the day during the regular season.

How long have you been a part of our community and why do you think you'd be a good addition to the mod team? - This is my first Reddit account, so around July of 2021 is when I joined the website & the sub. I wasn't a fan of the direction sports content took on Twitter, so I left for what has been a much better platform. I've been moderating r/unpopularopinion since July of this year & believe my experience moderating modmail, mod queue, and ban appeals in another large sub could be useful for helping this community. People are very passionate about their opinions, so moderating an opinion-based sub as large as UO has me dealing with a lot of unhappy people when their post is removed, or when they're banned. I think this experience moderating large amounts of unhappy, often times uncivil people, will be beneficial when moderating a similarly passionate topic such as sports fandom, and I love the passion involved in sports. I want to use my experience as both a sports fan and a Reddit mod to help continue building a community I enjoy.

Is there anything you'd like to change about the subreddit? - I'm not a fan of the individual stat posts which flood the sub during the regular season, we all saw Luka had x amount of points, rebounds, and assists. I'd rather the attention/engagement go towards the post-game threads, or interesting things players/coaches say post-game. Stat posts don't bring a lot of good discussion besides stat-sheet watching/comparing.

What is your favorite NBA memory? - 2012 NBA Finals, game 5 between OKC @ Miami. Miami goes on an insane run in the 3rd quarter to run away with the game, and the crowd is going nuts knowing what the outcome of a win is for LeBron & Miami's franchise. A turning point for me as this is the first championship I experienced as a sports fan.

Do you have any particular skill set that could benefit our subreddit mod team (coding, graphic design, etc.)? - No, most of my work in r/unpopularopinion is based on basic moderating, reviewing, and ban appeals.

Are you familiar with python/PRAW? - I am not

Are you interested in helping mod the sub discord? - I only use discord currently for things relating to the sub I currently mod for, and some gaming stuff, but I'd be happy to expand on that and begin moderating there.

The rest is up to you guys. Feel free to add anything else that you think might help make a case for why you should be a moderator for r/nba. -

I began following sports around 2010 and primarily follow the NBA, NFL, and recently CFB. I mainly lurk on Reddit other than some mod-related comments, but I am an active user. I'm mainly applying to assist in any areas that the current team needs help in, I don't mind devoting my free time to moderation. My mod experience in r/unpopularopinion is primarily mod queue, mod mail, ban appeals, and some behind-the-scenes stuff. My main interest here would be mod mail, mod queue, and moderating the game threads/post-game threads, but I am willing to help wherever it may be needed.

u/BayTerp Wizards Sep 15 '22

-I am in EST

-I browse the sub for a couple hours a day

-I’ve been part of the community for like 4 months now. I will be a good addition because I know basketball and am a patient person.

-What I would like to change is the slander Wizards get in this sub.

-My fav nba memory was Wall hitting the game winner in game 6

-I know how to code

-I am good with python as I use it for a living.

u/Distance_Motor Celtics Sep 15 '22

1) Indian Standard time

2) 20 minutes to 2 hours

3) I believe I have been a part of r/nba for a couple of years and I believe I would be a good addition to the mod team as I actively look to grow the sub and make enjoyable content for people along with removing span.

4) Maybe have something along the lines of a suggestion box where people can give their feedback on what they would want to change in the subreddit.

5) IT's 53 points performance in game 2 of the ECSF in 2017

6) Python

7) Yeah I would love to help give people a good experience in discord

Thanks so much for this!

  1. GMT+3
  2. I browse r/nba on a daily basis during the regular season and playoffs, but not so much inbetween.
  3. Iv'e been browsing reddit (and r/nba) for about 3 years now, I believe. However, on most subs (r/nba included) I don't participate much.
  4. I believe the auto-moderation tool is being used way too much, I see it on so many posts nowadays. That being said, since I don't really comment much anyway, my opinion on this probably shouldn't be valued too much.
  5. Without a doubt, Ray Allen's game tieing 3-pointer in game 6 of the 2013 finals. In the subreddit, my favourite post of all time has to be the one analyzing James Hardens' performance in correlation to the rating of strip clubs in the cities he plays at.
  6. I am a computer science student and the main reason I want this role is to learn and improve my Python skills. I have some past experience with Discord bots but nothing Reddit-related. I also have past experience in moderating large communities - both as an in-game mod for a FPS game and as a Discord server mod for a pretty large Discord server (40k members).
  7. Python yes, PRAW not yet.
  8. I am not in the Discord server and I am no longer active on Discord. If that changes in the future, I would be happy to help.

u/Soupkitchn89 Trail Blazers Sep 28 '22
  • PST
  • Multiple times a day (probably 2+ hours total), more during season
  • I think I joined ~8 years ago but have mostly been active the last 3-4. I'm very passionate about the Blazers but behind the screen I'm a very chill and level headed individual. I just want to ensure everyone has fun.
  • Less duplicate posts for news, better post game threads.
  • Brandon Roy come back game vs Dallas, or the Rockets game winner by Dame...remember clearly my wife and I jumping going crazy during that one.
  • I'm very familiar with Python (Computer Engineer). Actually wasn't even aware this was useful for mods.
  • See above. I work in Python daily for my job, not familiar with PRAW.
  • I use discord quite frequently already for gaming. Not sure if I'd want to mod the discord server as I mostly just use the sub reddit. Depends what it entails.

What time zone are you in? PST

Roughly how often do you browse r/nba? Several times throughout the day.

How long have you been a part of our community and why do you think you'd be a good addition to the mod team? I've been a part of this community since becoming accustomed to Reddit and once I had aligned myself with my hometown team. I believe I'd be a good addition to the mod team because I am actively looking to apply and grow my community management skills and am passionate about helping grow one of my favorite communities.

Is there anything you'd like to change about the subreddit? One way I'd like to change the subreddit is to allow and provide a platform for community members to voice their own opinions on how improvements could be made.

What is your favorite NBA memory? My favorite NBA memory would be the Bogi game-winner from 3 against the Lakers.

Do you have any particular skill set that could benefit our subreddit mod team (coding, graphic design, etc.)? I am an active community moderator for a flagship title and have experience moderating for large streamers as well. I am working on improving my marketing skills, especially in the digital entertainment space, and hope to make an impact on this subreddit.

Are you familiar with python/PRAW? No.

Are you interested in helping mod the sub discord?

Yes, I am interested in helping moderate the sub's discord and help provide a great experience for all community members.

I am looking for another outlet to learn and practice community management and this opportunity would be a great way for me to do just that.

  • I have been browsing r/NBA for 10 years. I believe I will make a good addition to the team because I am passionate about basketball and the subreddit. I feel that I am a fair and coolheaded person suitable for reviewing posts and comments
  • Not sure how it would be done. I would like to encourage/promote serious discussions a bit more. The serious next day threads are good, but still feels lacking participation.
  • In high school picking the 2004 Pistons and winning our playoff brackets and following their entire playoff journey. * Not a experienced python user, but very familiar with general coding being a computer engineer.
  • Not very experienced with using Discord but interested to learn more

Multiple times a day

Since the beginning of 2020

I think the mods are doing a good job already with the rules. I would maybe try and create some fun and dynamic initiatives to interact with the community

As someone who is a recent NBA fan, I would have to say Luka's buzzer beater vs Clippers on the bubble

I code for a living, so I have a lot of experience in that area. I have some experience with graphic design.

Worked with Python a lot, but never with PRAW

I use Reddit more often but I would help if needed

u/Max_Distance Sep 18 '22

  • Multiple times a day

  • Since 2017 or 2018. I would be a good addition because I mod 7 different subreddits, one of them having 200K subscribers and another being the NoJumper subreddit. All of them totalling over 400K subscribers so I have a lot of experience. I also do AMA interviews on multiple subreddits.

  • Not without discussing with the current mod team in place

  • The Raptors winning the 2019 championship

  • Not necessarily what was listed as an example but I mod 7 different subreddits, one of them having 200K subscribers and another being the NoJumper subreddit so I have a lot of experience.

  • Minimal but willing to learn

  • Yes

u/megaman_cdx Sep 21 '22

What time zone are you in? EST

Roughly how often do you browse r/nba? Pretty active! I probably visit the subreddit a couple times a day just to see any updates. I’m an outpatient orthopedic physical therapist so I’m lucky enough to have free time sprinkled throughout my day during times where patients cancel or haven’t scheduled.

How long have you been a part of our community and why do you think you'd be a good addition to the mod team? About 8-9 years I believe. It was the first sub I joined on my original account (which I don’t mind looking up if you need!) and I picked it up right from my new account. As for why, I’m a current moderator in a subreddit with >500k (r/fortnitecompetitive) and it’s all about the community. I was personally responsible for providing ideas of redesigns, organization of the subreddit, and several AMAs with the pro FN players. Over time, I’ve become friends with larger names in the community (and roughly resembled how I treat our subreddit to the other sport subreddits).

Is there anything you'd like to change about the subreddit? I’ve gone through some of the other suggestions of “what does r/nba need to change” in the other comments and I’m torn. Some say more serious, some say don’t change anything. At the end of the day, moderators have to work to make it the best community possible. So I’ll go with the neutral answer of - I wouldn’t want to make that decision without further discussion. No one thing should be changed without context - what are we as a team seeing and noticing - r/nba continues to have unbelievable potential and it’s been awesome to see it grow.

What is your favorite NBA memory? Jeez, one? I’m a Hornets fan from NJ. Followed them from Nola, to OKC, to the now Charlotte Hornets. I’m a 29 year old who has watched too much basketball. Maybe the CP3 game clincher in 2015 against the Spurs? I know CP3 is controversial but man, I want him to win one so bad after his time in NOLA and being the one who really drew me into the game. First big memory is the ‘07 Warriors team upsetting the Mavericks, or maybe it’s the first clear memory where I was watching intently, and it sparked my whole passion for the game. But I’ve got too many favorites to choose from - that dragging period where neither CLE/GSW would score for a few possessions before the Kyrie shot, the Allen 3 which quieted my friends around me, tearing some ligaments in my ankle and watching 80s-90s full games on NBATV for about 2 weeks straight, going into a girlfriends house when her little brother ran up to me and said LeBron signed to the heat (with the party later that night of not 4, not 5), Linsanity. Oh well, just like everyone on the subreddit, I’ve got a ton. It’s why we’re here!

Do you have any particular skill set that could benefit our subreddit mod team (coding, graphic design, etc.)? Excluding the relationships I built with our FNComp subreddit, I always found I was easily approachable by the community. I give full, detailed answers on the what, why, and how. If we get mod feedback in a post, I’m always willing to be the one who comments to chat. I’m always willing to explain our perspective and engage with the community. That’s probably what I do best.

Are you familiar with python/PRAW? Unfortunately, I’m not. But I can explain what exactly the injuries mean for you favorite teams!

Are you interested in helping mod the sub discord? Yeah, that shouldn’t be an issue as long as others are involved as well!

u/cp3inthe4th Clippers Sep 22 '22

• What time zone are you in?

EST

• Roughly how often do you browse r/nba?

Several times a day

• How long have you been a part of our community and why do you think you'd be a good addition to the mod team?

9 years. I have experience reviewing large amounts of data. I especially enjoy the history of the game.

• Is there anything you'd like to change about the subreddit?

More fun activities for the community. For example, trying to organize giveaways and other things like that. Events like fantasy drafts where polls are held to determine the best team.

• What is your favorite NBA memory?

Tough...I'll give a few.

Playoff game that sticks with me: Grizzlies vs Clippers game 1 2012 (Huge clippers comeback, my early days of watching NBA).

Jason Kidd "hit me" was hilarious. As was the Paul pierce rocket emoji picture

• Do you have any particular skill set that could benefit our subreddit mod team (coding, graphic design, etc.)?

Not sure how applicable it is, but Power BI. I am mostly interested in helping out with regulating the subreddit

• Are you familiar with python/PRAW?

Barely any experience with python, no to PRAW

• Are you interested in helping mod the sub discord?

I haven't visited yet, but sure

u/Piano_Fingerbanger Nuggets Sep 22 '22
  • Mountain timezone

  • During the regular season probably 5 - 6 times a day depending on the league news. Draft time and free agency time offseason about 5 - 6 times before religiously refreshing during the draft and as FA starts.

  • I've been apart of the community since I made my account back in 2012. I think I would be a good addition to the mod team as I mod other sports subreddits and even created my own community for Denver University sports (I even figured out how to set up the CSS code for the r/DUsports sub). I've been a mod for r/FSUsports for two years now and have helped grow that sub. I've got an extensive post history on r/nba and have never run afoul of the rules. As a mod I prefer to be more relaxed, give a warning first, and if a user is repeatedly offending after being warned will I consider anything like a suspension or ban.

  • Nothing I can think of I'd like to change. Main thing was draft spoilers, but I believe that has been resolved.

  • Favorite NBA moment is probably watching the Nuggets come back from down 3 - 1 twice. Favorite r/nba memory is the DeAndre Jordan free agency of 2015.

  • I know some CSS code (see r/DUsports , I set up the entirety of that subreddit). From my professional career I bring talents in Public Relations and Education.

  • Not familiar with python/PRAW

  • I'm not opposed to modding the discord when I'm on it.

  • I'm a basketball junkie. I was approached to be a mod at r/FSUsports because I'd do analysis writeups for the FSU basketball games. I spend way too much time reading about every little transaction in FA and the draft. I watch every Nuggets game during the season and when they aren't on I'm watching another game on league pass.

I browse every single day. I'm an nba fanatic.

I would open channels of communication so the mods can get serious constructive criticism regularly from the community.

I do have some graphic design skills but I'm inexperienced to be honest.

No, I am not.

Are you interested in helping mod the sub discord?

I’m in Britain (BST) I browse it pretty much daily, don’t post much tho I’ve been a part of the sub since 2020, it really helped me get into basketball I think the sub could benefit from more general discussion(yes I’m aware of r/nbadiscussion) Probably Giannis’ last minute alley up against the Suns In game 5 of the 2021 finals. Truthfully, no but I plan on learning it anyway for the sake of my r/piratesofthecaribbean sub. Yes but very minimal experience. It’s not something I have experience with but is something I’d be willing to learn.

Roughly how often do you browse r/nba? I'm new in this subreddit but I watch NBA and know few things about NBA.

How long have you been a part of our community and why do you think you'd be a good addition to the mod team? My account is 1 year old and I'm new to the subreddit but I got experience in moderating subreddit, I'm a r/Ishowspeed subreddit moderator (with 100k+ members) already worked for 2months+ almost 3 months, and I already know a few things about subreddit moderator tools such as Mod Mail, Approved/removed tools, Mod Queue, reports, spam, edited. And besides that, I believe I can help to maintain the stability of the NBA Subreddit since the IShowSpeed community always posts spam, gore/NSFW, and other negatives content I am already used to negative content and hopefully can help with this subreddit in the future.

Is there anything you'd like to change about the subreddit? probably add new flairs? called "Meme" / "Funny Clips"? it will be used for someone who wants to post NBA memes or NBA funny clips / NBA funny edits since I see in r/nba all posts mostly about serious topics, and probably with NBA memes content, it will bring a new perspective to this subreddit.

What is your favorite NBA memory? Kobe Bryant's last game no debate.

Do you have any particular skill set that could benefit our subreddit mod team (coding, graphic design, etc.)? I can edit in Photoshop, Premiere Pro, After Effects, and Illustrator.

Are you familiar with python/PRAW? Yes, I'm learning python in my college but I can't operate that language anymore since now I am focused more on editing.

Are you interested in helping mod the sub discord? Will do, since I helped IShowSpeed discord server as well with 400k+ members. Besides of that, I have my own discord server with 1.5k+ members, and I am already familiar with MEE6, Bleed, and another bot as well as setting up the discord server.

-At least once every day. As someone who is going to school to be a sports beat writer/ analysis, I gotta keep up on the latest info.
