bball_optToday’s look-back at the Top Mode Stories comes right on the heels of the NBA Finals between the Golden State Warriors and Cleveland Cavaliers, which begins on Thursday. Mode currently reaches more than 25 million monthly users in the US natively and 150 million across our ecosystem, so we certainly have a pulse on consumer engagement. Below are the top five stories over the last week, broken up between males and females. Interestingly enough, the one story in common is  appropriately titled Inescapable Pickup Basketball Stereotypes, from Micah Smith. Take a read and share it if you know someone that would enjoy the story, or if you know anyone that fits the bill!
