Please Welcome Mike Mooney to D Magazine

Careful readers will recognize the name Mike Mooney. He has written a couple pieces for us over the years, the most recent being this fine profile of Ron Washington. I’m pleased to announce that Mike will join us as a staff writer in the coming weeks, the exact date being somewhat of mystery on account of Mike is moving his life from Florida back to Dallas, where he graduated from UNT’s Mayborn School of Journalism. (Hey, Mike, what’s the latest ETA, holmes? Chop, chop.) To get you all lathered up and super excited for Mike’s arrival, here’s a story he has in the current GQ. It’s about the 16-year-old phenom basketball player in Permian Odessa who turned out not to be 16. Highly recommended. (Reading the piece, not lying about your age so you can dunk on high-schoolers.)
