About Rob Botts
How’s it going? I’m Rob Botts, a Boston native currently living in Los Angeles California. I’m a published writer, cartoonist, actor, former college basketball player (Div. III… don’t get too excited), and former coach of summer sports camps back in New England. I’m incredibly passionate about sports and in particular the National Basketball Association (NBA). I publish a weekly comic strip entitled “Boston Bobby” that follows the daily trials and tribulations of this crazy Boston sports fan. I may be very level headed, but my cartoon alter ego is not. My favorite teams are, of course, the Pats, Celtics, Bruins, Red Sox and the Revs…Yes, I follow soccer too—from afar. Let’s talk some sports!!!

By: Rob Botts It’s been a long time since the Phoenix Suns and the Boston Celtics have made history together. Remember way back when Suns and Celts were matching basket for basket in the triple […]

The Madison Square Mess

By: Rob Botts A mess is defined by Merriam-Webster’s dictionary as: “a dirty or untidy state of things or of a place.” I just can’t think of a better description of the current state of […]

January 6, 2017 0

By: Rob Botts James Harden is the hands down most valuable player so far this year in the association. Although, an equal argument could be made that Dwight Howard on the Atlanta Hawks this year […]

A tough PHIL to swallow…

By: Rob Botts Ah, the ivory tower. It can in one sense give you quite the view of the landscape, but in another, it just doesn’t allow to be close enough to the ground to […]
