About Hoopistani


From the far heights of the Himalayas to the deserts of Rajasthan, basketball is everywhere in India, and it is growing at an exponential rate. The blog 'Hoopistani' hopes to provide you regular features, news, and events information about all that concerns hoops in Hindustan.

But this site reaches out further from the Indian shores. As an NBA-aficionado, I also cover the world's finest hoops league to bring you top quality features for the international reader. With an eye on China in recent years, this blog also offers content regarding Chinese basketball and the CBA!

The blog is maintained by me, Karan Madhok. I'm an Indian Basketball writer, and have worked with the Basketball Federation of India. I currently write for several different websites and publications, including the NBA's official website in India, SLAM Online, SLAM Magazine, and SLAM China Magazine, for India's top sports website SportsKeeda.com, and I have a column for the up-and-coming website Ekalavyas. Recently, I also contributed to the world's largest basketball agency and news portal Court-Side. The result is a blog which is a mixture of creative writing, basketball, and India, usually all rolled into one!

Recently, I have also joined arms with Kaushik Lakshman to launch Indian basketball's first podcast, Hoopdarshan, which we co-host. You can follow Hoopdarshan on twitter at @Hoopdarshan.
