NBA Correspondent

Bio

My name is Joel Ruffin, and I am a Pennsylvania native who currently resides in Grand Rapids, Michigan. For me, sports are much more than a game; to me, they are a set of events and activities that can grow character, create relationships, and build communities. From being a participant to an observer, sports have had a significant impact on my life and my professional ambitions. Growing up, I was always surrounded by great students of the game and tremendously benefited from the insights and realities they brought to the forefront, which transformed how I understood the game and the business that comes along with it. I love all sports. My most-watched, however, are Basketball and Football; and once I discovered fantasy sports, my love for the game skyrocketed. I believe that unique thinking and a passion for asking and answering questions that others may not have thought of are a part of the true essence of success in fantasy sports. Information, knowledge, insight, "Gut" Power, and the courage to make and stand-by your conclusions are all elements I believe contribute to a great player in this game. I look forward to learning from those in the FantasyPros community and am excited for the experiences we will create together.
