Rip City Project Staff:
Kevin Yeung is a Staff Writer at Rip City Project. Born and raised in Richmond, British Columbia, Kevin was heartbroken when the Vancouver Grizzlies moved to Memphis over a decade ago. He now proudly represents the Blazers as the last remaining team in the Northwest. Although it might have been a trick of the light, he swears that he has seen Sasha Pavlovic perform a 360 dunk in pre-game warmups. Kevin hopes to be a professional NBA writer one day, and also hopes for a NBA team to eventually return to Vancouver.
Jason Hortsch is a Staff Writer at Rip City Project. He hails from the Portland, Oregon area, and really spread his wings to attend University of Portland for college. It was there that he worked for The Beacon, the school’s newspaper, for his first experience as a sportswriter. The 2000 Western Conference Finals Game 7 ranks among the most traumatic experiences of his childhood, and ever since that infamous day he has been longing for the Blazers to return to the promised land. He does his best to use his math degree to explore the numeric side of this beautiful game that we all love.
David MacKay is the Editor and Lead Writer of Rip City Project. Yep, that’s me. Third person generally isn’t my cup of tea, so here’s the skinny. I am a proud UO graduate and a lifelong basketball fan. I grew up in Portland’s vast Suburbia with a group of close friends, a forgiving backboard, and an extension cord for my buddy’s radio. I play a mean game of H-O-R-S-E, but my knack for more complex wordplay brings me to your computer screen today. I love what I do and I hope you love it too. The Blazers are my team and basketball is my world.
