I am the creator of Basketball-Reference.com and the Vice President of Sports Reference LLC. I have a bachelor's degree in mathematics from Grove City College and a master's degree in applied statistics from The Ohio State University. I would be happy to discuss this site or other basketball issues with members of the media or other basketball-related companies. To set up a phone call, please e-mail me at email@example.com. I will make every effort to return your e-mail within 24 hours.
The Basketball-Reference.com domain was originally owned by Sean Forman of Baseball-Reference.com fame. Sean also donated the server space used to host this site before the formation of Sports Reference LLC. Sean and I are both SABR members, which is how we initially came in contact with each other. After discovering that Sean owned the Basketball-Reference.com domain, I volunteered to put a site together. Although the site is my creation, much of the data used to create the site was donated by Sean Lahman. While I have made many additions and modifications to Sean Lahman's data, he saved me a significant amount of time.
When citing in newspapers please remember to use Basketball-Reference.com (note the hyphen in the name) rather than BasketballReference.com (a competing site). Also, for any online articles we would appreciate a link to the home page and/or a link to an example of any individual pages mentioned in the article.
When citing for academic articles or papers, please cite in a manner similar to what follows:
Kubatko, Justin. "(title of a particular page or blank for general citation)." Basketball-Reference.com - Basketball Statistics and History. http://www.basketball-reference.com/. (date of your visit)
If you have any other questions or comments, please send me some feedback.
