Aspiring Sports Journalist! When I’m not watching ball games, I’m usually grabbing a mid-2000s Vince Vaughn comedy. If that does not summarize my personality, I don’t know what will. Spirited member of the Joe Harris fan club on Nets Twitter.

Lucas Kaplan
Antonio Losada

Lucas Kaplan @LucKaplan

Lucas is currently an undergraduate student at Northwestern University, where he is studying Journalism in hopes of pursuing his most fervent passion, basketball. Lucas has devoured the sport his whole life, rooting for the Nets since he could dribble a basketball. He played High School Basketball in his hometown of Manhattan, New York, for Dwight School, where the team captured a New York State championship in his junior year. If he isn’t watching basketball or some other sport, Lucas is either listening to music or eating Mexican food.

Antonio Losada @chapulana

Antonio is a Spanish born-and-raised writer and designer who someday, somehow, decided he wanted to lose sleeping time in exchange of sensing some NBA-adrenaline overnight. From Biggie to Sheck Wes or Vinsanity to Dinwiddie, New York has always been present one way or another in his mind, removing any distance between places. But don’t get fooled. His heart has only room for one and Carmelo Anthony occupies it from day one.
