Brian "BananaSlamJamma" Canavan is an American professional Dota 2 player, streamer, and analyst.

Biography[edit]

BananaSlamJamma 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, BSJ has started to enjoy giving pro-level analysis 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 NA casters Kyle and GrandGrant.
