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 game. 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 one, never hesitate to hit me with a question, comment or discussion topic.
Although basketball reference and 82-games did put Harrison Barnes primarily as a power-forward, it's common knowledge that he was primarily the SF of the starting lineup and the PF of the bench. Listing him as primarily a PF hurts his rating so much more than it would've had he been a SF or Combo Forward in your power rankings.
love your columns and player breakdowns with your nba 200 and other series like it. I always wondered what you thought about #55 Jason Williams. How he always seemed to be an impact players on his teams when he was young yet put up such unimpressive stats.
Why Iman Shumpert didn't appear in your NBA 200? I couldn't find him in any of the categories. He is a valuable bench player for the Cavs and was a starter for the Knicks. I think he is way better than many players that did appear. Nonetheless, great job on that lists, i really appreciated the metrics and i'm following every single list.
Where on earth is AD on your top PFs list? He's (arguably) the best big in the game, and no one has ever called him a center...

I think I'm the only one that liked your top 100 players of all-time. Good job on that.
Your top 50 isn't as bad as your 100-51, but still several glaring mistakes. Hakeem behind the Admiral is pretty funny considering one of those guys won 2 straight finals MVPs and dominated their playoff match ups. Bird only 9th is ridiculous. For 8 straight years Bird never finished worse than 3rd in the MVP voting. Duncan hasn't been an MVP candidate for the past 10 years. He's successful b/c of the team and the system these past several yrs. Russell is clearly not better than Wilt, unless you drink the Bill Simmons kool-aid. Also Dirk and Malone were FAR more productive PFs than KG. KG has played the past 5 seasons as an irrelevant player. Both Dirk and Malone never had even 1 such season. Both guys carried their team's on offense. KG hasn't done that in over 10 years and could never close games. How's KG better than Moses, a 3x MVP? Why is Drexler better than Isiah, Frazier, Cousy? Elgin at 22 LoL? Dude only put up seasons of 35-20-5. Stockton's better than Dr. J LoL? Paul Pierce is 36th?! Why? He never won anything until Ainge traded for 2 first ballot HoFers in their prime. Get real. Mind boggling.
