Ronce Rajan,Contributor

Ronce has faced the ultimate test of Dallas fandom: living in New Jersey. If someone can withstand the vitriol thrown at Dallas fans in the Tri-State area, their loyalty must never be questioned.

Jeffrey Chang,Contributor

I want to write about the stories, narratives, and ideas that shape this industry and bring to the forefront what makes the NBA such a special place. Dallas Mavericks, Houston Rockets, and San Antonio Spurs fanboy.

Chad Sanchez,Contributor

Howdy all! My name is Chad Sanchez and I currently live in the Houston, TX area. I was born and raised in Dallas, TX and obtained my bachelors degree from The University of Texas at Austin with a focus on broadcast/print media Journalism. During my time at UT, I met my lovely wife and her being a native of Houston, that's how I ended up there. I did convert her over to the Mavericks and Cowboys though. We have two children, and are expecting our third this summer. I look forward to sharing my thoughts and opinions on the Mavericks and get to write about what I love.

About FanSided

The idea of FanSided was born in 2007, when two brothers felt that their favorite team, the Kansas City Chiefs, was being under-covered by the mainstream media. Taking matters into their own hands, they launched Arrowhead Addict, a move that would spawn the creation of FanSided in 2009, a network of over 300+ fan-powered unique sports, entertainment and lifestyle sites dedicated to team-specific, sport-specific, genre-specific, and fanbase-specific coverage.

From sports, movies and TV to lifestyle and tech, FanSided has you covered.
