NBA senior writer Kevin Ding (@KevinDing) covers the league for Bleacher Report, based out of Los Angeles.
He started out driven to fill up every page in the daily journal his mom gave him one childhood Christmas and wound up at Northwestern University’s Medill School of Journalism, The Miami Herald and the Orange County Register before B/R.
He has been a sportswriter covering the NBA since 1999. His column on Kobe Bryant and LeBron James was judged the No. 1 column of 2011 by the Pro Basketball Writers Association; his column on Jeremy Lin won second place in 2012.
Just want to know if you've ever played basket ball and what level.
That's what I thought!!!!!!!
Your articles suck. Get a new job. Take the hint and look at your comments here.
You're just mad that Dwight left LA and all y'all got was Lin. Have fun overpaying Kobe for the next 5 years when y'all resign him to max deal.
Amazing that Bleacher Report is employing a Lin only fan
You are honestly one of the most pathetic writers of all time.
Are you really that much of an idiot to think a daughter is a distraction? You sir truly are an idiot
Pretty cold to call Howard out like you did after a 6'9, 200+ pound guy rolled over his knee. Dwight's injury could potentially be serious, and yet you're over here calling him out. You're an embarrassment to B/R.
Where were you when Howard had his good games against the Clippers and Mavs? I bet you were in your little hole, crying and wishing he had never left LA. Am I right or am I right? You're a terrible writer. Grow a DING and stop being biased, you piece of crap.
You said the Rockets aren't built for the playoffs
-They're in the WCF with 2 of their starters (Pat Bev and D-Mo) missing the entire playoffs
You said Dwight is far from 'Superman'
-So one bad game suddenly means he's not a good player anymore. HOLY SHIT you are stupid. Again, YOU ARE IGNORING HIS OVERALL PERFORMANCE IN THE PLAYOFFS. Next time you write anything, make sure that little brain of yours isn't out of your head.
Fuck you, I hope you get fired. Stop being biased and grow a brain.

You are an embarrassment to journalism. I want to like you, and I don't usually voice my displeasure with journalists, but it's clear you are here simply due to Affirmative Action. Josh Smith rolled into Howard's knee, SPRAINING his knee, and that's Dwight's fault? Surely you are aware that Andrew Bynum's knee was shredded on the same exact thing in like 2009, being the Laker lover that you are? You're sole purpose for hating Dwight is the fact that your selfish superstar and cold franchise wasn't able to sign him long term. Disgraceful and unprofessional, you're basically on the same level of Laker trolls. Due to the sorry state of your team, you feel the need to shred Howard at every turn. Affirmative Action is apparent here, because it's clear you don't have the class, respect, or objectivity to be a high profile journalist.
