• The Spot To Be For NBA Basketball News & Web Community •



An alternative-interactive hoop-centric location on the internet which brings the best of the NBA news & media everyday into one place for people to enjoy and discuss.

A spot where if you just want that much more content & variety from around the web to add to your love of the NBA news & social media experience, you will find posts updated here 24 hours a day with some of the same themes, topics and general news updates from other NBA sites — but also many posts with other very unique and different material and activities than what is usually found elsewhere — including especially YOUR suggestions as an online community.

Hoophangout is designed as not just a news site, but also to support an interactive group experience – so please – we strongly encourage you to make it partially yours and participate and contribute – not only to the discussion, but likewise we welcome you to make suggestions (not just about the website or policies or criticisms etc.) but also for articles, stories, topics, themes or ANY relevant, reasonable and interesting ideas you feel we have missed covering or that you would just like to see posted and discussed more often and think would add positively to the overall community.

(All that is needed to do this and get a response from the site administrator or moderators is to leave your suggestion or question as a comment in any comment section along with an @ :disqus tag. If you are unfamiliar with how to do this, it is very simple — just ask a moderator in any general comment field and they will show you how.)

Please be patient if we take a little while to respond to you sometimes!

By the way, if you don’t have a DISQUS account — they are free and only an email is required. You can create one as well as ‘Follow’ the site, its article feed and comments directly on the DISQUS platform if you prefer to at the following link:


(This page can be useful, as it is sometimes a bit faster to load & scroll when comments get high on certain threads — also, it has the more basic ‘white background’ comment screen appearance configuration some of you may prefer and be used to viewing while reading and writing on the DISQUS channel network — and again, it is from this page you can also press and select the green ‘Follow’ button as found on other DISQUS channels to receive automatic invites for new discussions in your inbox when they are posted here.)

Thank you very much for visiting us!

We hope you enjoy your stay and keep bouncing on back to HOOPHANGOUT.COM!
