CrownHoops was founded by Jordan Daly in July of 2019. For a brief stint of four months, CrownHoops was known as HoopLifeTV. After getting his feet wet with various different sport media outlets, Jordan wanted to combine the best aspects of each to form a new site – something that the writers and the readers could enjoy.

CrownHoops Mission Statement

CrownHoops combines a normal written article with some form of audio or visual to compliment the written word. Sometimes, words just aren’t enough and don’t always show any emotion. When it comes to basketball, emotion often drives the game, and it is something that shouldn’t be forgotten about in the media. CrownHoops aims to bring back the emotion for both the writer and the reader.

Business Inquiries

CrownHoops is always looking for business partners, sponsors, and promotional opportunities. For any business inquiries, please email Jordan at jordan@hooplifetv.com

Senior Editor: Ben Okazawa

After quickly getting noticed, Ben made his way up the ladder to become an editor after only a month of writing. It was clear early on that Ben would be a force to be reckoned with in the sports media industry. Ben was also a member of the original podcast crew as a producer, as well as having a reoccurring role running the “Hot Takes” segment. Hailing from just outside of Toronto, Ben is a big fan of the Toronto Raptors. Ben is actively pursuing a sports media degree at Ryerson University.

Director of Recruiting and Development: Matt Huff

Matt Huff has been with CrownHoops since the beginning. The man with a double major in entrepreneurship and business administration wanted to combine his skills with his passion for sports when he was in college. For a time, Huff wrote for a couple of different sites which helped him rise in the writing world as he was featured in Bleacher Report and Sports Illustrated. His work ethic, consistency, and love for sports eventually caught the eye of Jordan as he worked his way through the ranks of CrownHoops. Huff occasionally fills in on the CrownHoops podcast. Matt is a long time fan of the Denver Nuggets.
