Hey basketball fans, this is Josh Bhagratie reporting in! I'll be the lead writer for 9450's basketball culture and blog content. My goal is to bring you consistent pieces about the brand such as what we're up to with our clothing collections; as well as opinion and highlight pieces from the league and basketball world at large! Just so you can get some context on my point of view: Originally from Queens, I grew up as a fan of basketball. My brother was the first person one that introduced me to the NBA with his love of the Lakers, this was when both Kobe and Shaq were on the squad. From there I fell in love with league and I've been hooked ever since. I created 9450 Apparel as an extension of that passion, a clothing brand that represents the style of being on the court as well as off it and all the culture that comes from the sport. By no means am I a sports journalist, I'll leave that to the people who truly dedicate their time to that career. With all that said.. let's get this show on the road!
