Hey everyone, my name is Mark Wahlen. I'm one of the contributors to our awesome team here at TheFiveBy5.com. I'm currently 27 years old and live in Salt Lake City, Utah. My background is primarily in exercise performance science and healthcare, but I consider myself a full-time basketball junkie. I love the Utah Jazz and the NBA, but I'm also passionate about college and international basketball.
I'm a big believer in harmonizing the "eye-test" with statistics. My favorite player of all-time is John Stockton. I believe that LeBron James > Michael Jordan. I still believe that Howard Eisley's 3 should've counted and Ron Harper's runner shouldn't have in game 6 of the 97-98 finals. I believe that playing hard is a skill.
I'm always up for talking about anything basketball related, so feel free to follow me on social media or shoot me an email.
