About Q McCall:

(From www.swishappeal.com) Quentin McCall currently writes for SwishAppeal.com and started the Rethinking Basketball blog in 2008 as a public journal of his thoughts about the WNBA from a NBA fan’s perspective. Based in Seattle, he has followed the Storm most closely during the 2009 season, but follows as many games as time and WNBA LiveAccess permit. As part of his own efforts to learn the game, "Q." has used a combination of advanced statistics and observation to better understand the game and provide rich analyses of the sport he loves. His enjoyment of the WNBA has led to an interest in NCAA women’s basketball and at the conclusion of the WNBA season, he will begin covering Seattle-area NCAA basketball as well.

Q McCall's Favorite Sports:

Basketball, NBA, W College Hoops, WNBA, Men's Football, Soccer
