lol at everyone calling you a HEAT fan when you're a Cavs fan. They're so used to overused slander that they can't tolerate praise.
You predicted Al Jefferson to Charlotte. Nice.
Hi Brendan. I was just reading one of your articles (the link posted above), and noticed that you failed to include Joakim Noah as the number 1 center, much less as a top 5 center. Seeing as to how you are not responding to any comments posted on that article, I decided to post on your profile to try and find an answer as to why you decided to leave Noah out?
Yes, I am a Bulls fan, but I think it is apparent that Noah is playing like the best center in the NBA right now, or at the least top 5. I'm intrigued as to why you left him out.
Also, just to be clear, I'm not writing this as an angry fan who wants to see their team's player appreciated, I would just like to hear your opinions on the matter further.
Thanks and I look forward to hearing back.
hi there, i loved your article about the 2003 draft class!
question though, do you think that the culture of the NBA in the past was different in so far that players wanted to stay on their teams for long periods of time? or did the "super team" in Miami just happen because all 3 players were in their contract years? if i remember correctly, Melo had signed a larger deal with the Nuggets leaving him out of any potential super team with LeBron, Wade or Bosh
