CapStrategist.com is solely operated by me, Cole Zwicker. To provide brief biographical context, I am a licensed attorney in the state of Wisconsin currently residing in Seattle, Washington, my home city. I recently graduated from Marquette University Law School, earning my J.D. and in conjunction Marquette’s Sports Law Certificate from the National Sports Law Institute in May 2014. For my undergraduate education, I attended California Polytechnic State University in San Luis Obispo, California. I received my B.S. in Business Administration with an international business concentration in 2010. “SLO” remains my favorite non-Seattle location I’ve traveled to. If you ever venture there, visit Firestone Grill, indulge in the tri-tip and thank me later.
As a Seattle native I am an ardent Seattle Seahawks and Seattle SuperSonics fan (*deep sigh*), while trying to balance the former somehow with being a Pittsburgh Steelers fan as well in spite of Super Bowl 40, a feat that is growing increasingly difficult given the current locale. I grew up learning basketball by listening to Kevin Calabro call Sonics games on the radio, and trying to replicate what I saw on NBA on NBC television broadcasts on my driveway, mostly recycling “Roundball Rock” in my head. After the Sonics “relocated”, I took up interest in the Phil Jackson (my favorite basketball figure of all time) triangle-led Lakers, with the spectacular frontcourt passing dynamics of Pau Gasol and Lamar Odom. Currently, I label myself as more of an NBA fan than a fan of a specific team, though I’d be remiss if I didn’t say I was pulling for a Sonics return in the foreseeable future.
Most aptly tailored to this site, I am an NBA enthusiast, consuming and engaging in all types of NBA-related content from team building to statistics, the business of basketball, scouting and CBA content. I pursued a legal education to acquire skills to pair with a lifetime supply of NBA acumen, and it is my hope that passion and knowledge are conveyed effectively on this site to produce a product that is both original and true to the goals outlined in the “About This Site” tab.
