Brian "BSJ" Canavan (born June 2, 1992) is an American professional Dota 2 player, streamer, and analyst who is currently playing for Fart Studios. He is also a streamer for Team Liquid.


BSJ began playing Dota 2 shortly before The International 2012. He entered the competitive scene in early 2015, after achieving the number one rank in the NADotA Elite League. He was picked up by DeMoN with his team Summer's Rift. The team had some mild success, qualifying for his first LAN in May of that year. However, the team would end up finishing last place. A month later, issues within the team sparked an unpleasant disband of the team a month later after failing to qualify for TI5. Since then, BSJ has continued to stream on Twitch for Complexity Gaming.

He has had some experience with professional teams while doing so, including Team Freedom. Undeterred from the lack of success, BSJ made his own resurgence of Team Leviathan for the 2017-18 DPC year. Through the second half of 2017, the team would surprise some of the established NA teams in the major and minor qualifiers. The most notable result was when they knocked off Evil Geniuses in the Starladder i-League Invitational #3 NA qualifiers. However, the team never managed to breakthrough against the rest of the NA Dota scene. Issues with lack of practicing among the players, Leviathan would disband at the end of 2017. BSJ was later picked up by VGJ.Storm with good friend monkeys-forever in early 2018. Unfortunately, the team never managed to qualify for a DPC event, and was disbanded only a month later.

Despite not having a team for the rest of the DPC season, BSJ enjoyed analyzing and casting at DPC events such as The Summit 8 and 9, MDL Changsha, and The International 2018. People may recognize him casting frequently with other notable NA casters Kyle and GrandGrant.

The beginning of the 2018 DPC season treated BSJ well. Reuniting with former teammates Jubei and monkeys-forever, their new team ROOONS qualified for DreamLeague Season 10 and the inaugural season of the North American Dota Challengers League. Through these accomplishments, ROOONS found themselves invited to a few other notable LAN's, such as Red Bull Guardians and the World Showdown of Esports. The results were lackluster, finishing dead last in each of these tournaments, and by participating in these LAN's made them forfeit the NADCL season due to scheduling conflicts.


  • In May 2017 BSJ was added to the compLexity stream team.[1]
  • Has a degree in Biomedical Engineering.[2]
  • His in-game name derives from his high school nickname "Canavan the Bananaman".[3][4]
