I did another interview about the NBA and social media. This one was with Rey-Rey from TheNoLookPass.com. We started this interview way back in April and didn’t officially finish it until last week. Check it out!
I recently talked to Alexis Gentry, the daughter of Phoenix Suns’ head coach, Alvin Gentry. I thought she’d be a good person to talk to when it comes to NBA-related stuff. I mean, being an NBA coach’s daughter, I thought she could provide a view on what it’s like to be in that position. Alexis also runsTrashwire.Com, a very good entertainment news site that has TV, movie, and concert reviews among other things. Also, if you’re into Big Brother, check that out as well.
Ms. Gentry was kind enough to answer all the questions I had in the E-Mails we exchanged and was quite candid in this conversation. I’m in purple and Alexis is in orange. It’s no secret what team she roots for. Duh.

If you haven’t already seen my tweets about this, here’s a link to my interview with ValleyoftheSuns.com about the NBA and social media. Check it out!
When Suns head coach @AlvinGentry first started tweeting, he credited his daughter for getting him to join Twitter.
So who better to go to for the second part of ValleyoftheSuns’ in-depth look at social media and the NBA than Alexis Gentry herself?
OK, so the head coach has only sent out a happy Fourth of July tweet since the draft lottery, but he provided some insightful commentary on the Suns’ season last year and promises to do so again this season.
Alexis answered a couple of my questions via e-mail about how her dad got on Twitter, what grade she’d give him as a tweeter and what she’s doing with her entertainment Web site, Trashwire.com.

While browsing twitter today, I came across a link for this article about Myspace losing it’s grip as the dominant social media outlet. One particluar statement that caught my eye was, “MySpace suffered a drop in visitor traffic last month and is now less than half the size of its younger rival, Facebook.”

A little while back, I did an interview with Blazer’s Edge, which was published on the site today.
Here’s a quick snippet of Ben’s intro:
Alexis is Alvin’s computer-savvy, writing-whiz, self-described “fan of pop culture” and “geek-speaking” daughter. She is the founder of a website TrashWire.com and is, perhaps, the only person alive who could convince an NBA Lifer like Alvin Gentry to plug into the latest social networking craze. On her blog and in article-style posts, she has detailed some of the times she’s spend behind the scenes with her father and the Suns team. It’s well-worth your time.

Thanks to Ben, Blazer’s Edge and all my friends and fellow Suns fans on Twitter!
So, it’s no secret that I am fully addicted to all things Twitter. I’ve been pushing it like a drug dealer to all my friends, family members (@psgentry and @AlvinGentry) and most people I meet. I was browsing some of my friend’s tweets when I saw a link to Twitter Mosaic, which a handy dandy little picture quilt of your Twitter followers. I know I’m a total geek, but things like this amuse me.
