Nick DePaula

An avid hoops and sneakers fan who grew up in Sacramento, Nick has been wearing a rubberband on his left wrist ever since he saw KG rock one on the cover of the first-ever SLAM KICKS issue in 1998. He now lives in Portland, working with some of your favorite brands on player marketing projects, writing for SLAM and as a constant behind-the-back pass proponent at local 24 Hour Fitness pickup runs.
