Bethlehem Shoals Bio

Bethlehem Shoals, known as “Nathaniel Friedman” to stuffier editors, is the founder, chief contributor and editor-in-chief of, whose Macrophenomenal Pro Basketball Almanac was published last fall by Bloomsbury, USA. The still-untitled follow-up, a book about the league’s long history, will be out in time for 2010-11. He is the chief contributor to The Baseline, Sporting’s NBA blog, and has also written about sports and/or music for Slate,, Slam, Spin, The Nation, Vibe,, McSweeney’s Internet Tendency, and The Philadelphia Inquirer. He is also quite possibly the worst basketball player in the world, described charitably as “a poor man’s Anderson Varejao.”
