During my time with Bleacher Report, I've completed two writing internships and worked as a Featured Columnist with the college football, NCAA Basketball, Tennis and—most notably—NBA teams. I also worked as a Feedback Editor for the Advanced Program in Sports Media.
As you can probably tell, my focus now lies squarely within the NBA world.
I graduated magna cum laude from the University of Georgia with a triple major in Classical Culture, Latin and Psychology and was given the Classics Prize, awarded annually to the department's top graduating student. During that chapter of my life, I was named the NBA's top writer of the month multiple times, was selected to the inaugural class of the Internship Hall of Fame and was named the site's Featured Columnist of the Month.
After graduating, I moved from Athens to Denver, where I currently reside.
My expertise within the game of basketball lies in three areas: prospect evaluation, the sport's history and the statistical aspects of the sport. I've developed several metrics during my time with Bleacher Report and plan to continue doing so.
I've followed sports my entire life, so whether it's basketball or some other sport, never hesitate to hit me with a question, comment or discussion topic.
Adam.... I see you like the Jaguars, well my dads cousion Shahid Khan owns them
Has anyone ever told you you look EXACTLY like Kevin Love? Because you do.
I doubt you remember me, but I've been a frequent commenter on your posts and articles as a fan of Monta Ellis. I respect your opinion on his old self, and I kind of agree, even tho its hard to. Would you say he's changed for the best in dallas? and do you think he can be an allstar in the west? (yes, even with other elite shooting guards such as the beard and the mamba)
MR FROMAL, I do respect you and your articles very much, I think you are gifted writer.
I would like to hear your opinion about these:
1. Duncan has been pretty bad this season start... How do you think he'll fare?
2. NYK is pretty hyped but their defense is terrible without Chandler and they dot seem to be finding their groove what do you think will happen to them? What seed do you predict? I predict 5.
Just wondering has the past few games changed your opinion about Michael Carter-Williams?
Hi Mr. Fromal
I read you recent Ultimate one-on-one NBA tournament article and found it an awesome read, but slightly divisive because of the subjectivity and unpredictable nature of this hypothetical tournament. I understand that this unavoidable, but I believe there is a way to improve this system.
How's this for an analytical solution? Some people see a problem that players are being overrating and the numbers not meaning what the score would be. So instead of just a win or loss, have the voters each predict the score of the matchup along with a winner. That way a close matchup would count for something more than just a loss. There are more ways to analyze these stats:
1. Wins for winner vs. Wins for loser (how it seems like this article has it)
2. Average score of matchup (by adding total points, getting a ratio, and then prorating it to a 21 pt. game. Closer disparity means longer overtime, until there is a 2 pt difference)
3. Score in losses vs. score in losses (calculation similar to #2, to better see how competitive close matchups would be, but may have small sample size in lopsided victories)
4. Mode score of matchup (i.e. matchup score that is most repeated among voters)
Just a few suggestions that would be interesting for further discussion!

What do you think of this trade? LeBron James for Kobe Bryant and Nick Young?
I wrote an article on the Hawks: http://voices.yahoo.com/the-impact-josh-smiths-departure-hawks-12337673.html?cat=14. What's your thoughts on it? Any advice? I'm looking to continue writing, and if you could somehow forward that to people(if you think it's good enough. I'd appreciate it! Big fan of yours by the way
You're one of the best writers in Bleacher Report but I think that sometimes you bash on other teams too much...I'm sorry but you are quite bias on some situations.
Nice job with the 1-on-1 article, Adam. Thanks for the opportunity to participate and for including my quote. Much appreciated!
