Fact Checking Policy

Accurate Headlines & First Paragraphs

We strive for 100% accurate headlines and apply a rigorous vetting process to every news article on the site. 
Before any article is written, we ensure the information is solid and accurate. We verify sources and always dig down to the source (and reference material if applicable) before the writing process begins. Even if other outlets report an unsubstantiated piece of news as official confirmation, we require 100% confirmation to claim it’s confirmation. We do not post clickbait. Our headlines might be bold - but we don't throw out broad statements just to sound bold. It has to be accurate and fact-checked. BasketballUpToDate articles don’t just report the news, we provide NBA-leading context that explains why that news is important to you. The full context is always provided in Paragraph 1 (P1).
BBU editors report about draws, prize money, rankings, players, NBA, NCAA, FIBA, match reports, interviews, and social media reactions to inform our readers as comprehensively as possible. Passionate basketball fans themselves, our BasketballUptoDate team comes from diverse backgrounds and countries aiming to provide the best, as well as most engaging, content possible for visitors of our site.

Checking For Official Comment

Anytime we cover a rumor or leak or announcement from non-official sources (from Reddit, social, YouTube channels, untested publications, etc.) we reach out to a representative of that source. Even if they cannot comment or don't answer, we did reach out. We ensure everyone has an opportunity to weigh in. Our writers and editors have loads of experience. This makes our information reliable and correct. We make sure every new article has the latest info, the most accurate info, and all relevant details.

Considering the Bigger Picture

Standards for feature content are the same and we stress the importance of research and objectivity - as well as presenting a clear argument (and when drawing out a conclusion or theory, considering and including relevant counter-arguments). This approach allows us to address more possibilities and answer questions before they’re asked by readers.
