About Me

ben-golliver-headshot

I am the National NBA Writer for the Washington Post, where my professional basketball coverage includes the “Post Up” weekly newsletter. I am also the co-host of Sports Illustrated’s “Open Floor” NBA podcast, the co-host of the independent “Greatest Of All Talk” NBA podcast, and a weekly guest on the “Locked On NBA” podcast.

Prior to joining The Post in 2018, I was a Senior Writer for Sports Illustrated, where I covered the NBA for six years. Before joining SI in 2012, I spent two years at CBSSports.com while also covering the Portland Trail Blazers for seven seasons at Blazersedge.com.

I began writing about basketball with the self-published “Draft Kevin Durant” blog in 2007. In the decade-plus since, I have covered the NBA Finals and playoffs, NBA Draft, NBA All-Star Weekend, NCAA Tournament, Las Vegas Summer League, and USA Basketball events, among others.

I am a graduate of the Writing Seminars at The Johns Hopkins University and a member of the Professional Basketball Writers Association and the Washington Post Guild. I was born in Portland, Oregon, attended Beaverton High School, and spent most of my life in the Pacific Northwest. I moved to Los Angeles, my current home, in 2015.

Thanks for stopping by. I’d love to hear from you.
