After stints at other prominent sports sites that started in 2009 Jose Salviati, on advice from someone at the LA Times, decided to start LAPeachBasket so he could focus on the teams he knew best, the Lakers and Clippers. Since the 2017-18 season LAPB has been covering the two LA professional basketball teams. In the 2019-20 season, he got some help.

Today, thePeachBasket is a site dedicated to NBA basketball but expanding our reach with a goal to cover all professional basketball! Our focus has always been, and will always remain, fan focused articles, podcasts and videos.
