Grantland’s Sebastian Pruiti Heads to the NBA

Wow. This doesn’t happen every day. A sports journalist who actually knows what he’s talking about and isn’t just opining out his butt. Grantland’s NBA blogger Sebastian Pruiti has been hired by the NBA’s Oklahoma Thunder as the team’s newest video analyst, according to the Fort Wayne Journal Gazette. Apparently, Pruiti is the former head coach of the Ft. Wayne Mad Ants basketball team, hence the middle of nowhere scoop. Grantland editor Bill Simmons confirmed Pruiti’s exit via Twitter.

Pretty great time to jump to the NBA, as several huge trades this offseason have basketball fans clamoring for the season to begin.
