About

NBA senior writer Kevin Ding (@KevinDing) covers the league for Bleacher Report, based out of Los Angeles.

He has been a sportswriter covering the NBA since 1999. His pre-draft piece on the Lakers planning to select D'Angelo Russell took top honors for 2015 in the Pro Basketball Writers Association's "breaking news" category.

Ding's column on Kobe Bryant and LeBron James was judged the No. 1 column of 2011 by the PBWA, and his column on Jeremy Lin won second place in 2012.

Initially driven to fill up every page in the daily journal his mom gave him one childhood Christmas, Ding wound up at Northwestern University’s Medill School of Journalism, The Miami Herald and the Orange County Register before B/R.

    I hope you B/R writers see that people complain on this site more about you writers talking about the election and racism than the election and racism itself. It really takes some extreme arrogance to bridge sports with politics while forcing your own input on the matter. I shouldn't speak for all people, but for those that want to keep these topics mutually exclusion, writers like you and Mike Freeman have lost our respect.

    Kevin - I thought your article entitled "Curry Redefining Greatness in Post-MJ Era" was a refreshing angle on the whole '95-'96 Bulls versus '15-'16 Warriors discussion. I thought the observations on the difference in personalities between MJ and SC was particularly astute.

    Have you considered writing a longer article about the broader difference in culture between the two eras - in the NBA, in professional sports, and in the broader American society?

    Great piece on Anthony Davis, and how important his use of Alignmed's Posture Shirt has been. Imagine if the very vulnerable high school athletes adopted it widely. They play in immature bodies. There are over 1,000 active pro athletes in all the major sports playing in Alignmed. It's no secret. It's become quite the staple for many pro athletes. http://bleacherreport.com/articles/2626704-long-hidden-injury-shows-anthony-davis-may-not-be-who-we-thought-he-was

    Please never write another article again in your life. You're a terrible writer and everyone hates you on BR

    I've read your article regarding the Philadelphia's tanking. My suggestion would be, instead of the bottom teams having the greater odds, why not reverse it? The teams who barely missed the playoffs should have the greater odds, in that case, teams will remain competitive because it has 2 options, make the playoffs and if they'd be cut off, they'd have greater odds in the lottery.
