ESPN writer-reporter Arash Markazi is revolutionizing the sports media game. Yes, he’s one of the go-to guys for Los Angeles sports news, but he also tears it up with content that isn’t so procedural.
Check out his Instagram page (@ArashMarkazi) and you’ll notice he takes timely videos of quirky things that go down behind the scenes. Remember when Rob Gronkowski and Justin Bieber crashed the Clippers locker room? He was there Vining his ass off for the Internet. Steve Ballmer dancing to Fergie? Don’t even have to ask, Arash was effin’ there to catch it and film. Nick Young’isms? He’ll probably have a book of quotes to sell when the season is over.
But what I appreciate about Arash is he also gives us a glimpse into his life. And let me tell you guys, sometimes I wonder if this dude is on the same plane as athletes. He’s walking beautiful Manhattan Beach, dining like a boss, partying, etc., etc. Oh, and he seems to be a lady magnet of some sort.
I honestly can’t think of another sportswriter out there living the life.
