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.
Hello, I really like reading your articles. I feel you have great knowledge. But i have a question and it would really help if you could clarify. Dwyane Wade is my favorite player, but I have questions about him. Well, actually, an opinion, and I would like to see if you agree.
Recently, Dwyane Wade was ranked the #36 player by ESPN. Im a hude wade fan and supporter. Thing is people call wade a top 5 shooting guard of all time. His talents are obviously deserving of being called not just an all time great at his position, but maybe all time great player as well.
But his accomplishments before pre-Lebron was just average in terms of superstars. His only advantage is championships. Really? Vince Carter could have won if he was teamed up with Shaq and later, Lebron. Yes, his 2006 finals was brilliant. (best ever) His 2009 season where he was arguably robbed of the MVP was amazing. But, THATS IT.
Everything else, players have done before, are doing now, and will continue to do in the future. I sincerely believe, as many do, Wade is a special, special player. But, I feel he has wasted his abilities. People say Vince was a "wasted talent". Then Dwyane is the epitome of that. Why couldn't he replicate his 2009 season to the 2010 season? Why didn't he take over in the 2011 finals in games 4,5, and 6?? People blame Lebron, but truth is, Heat were leading in those games(except game 6) and Wade DID NOT close the deal.
I understand winning maters, but Wade was lucky to play with two of the greatest athletes of all time. I think Wade, who appeared to be humble in the early stages of his career, became "full of himself". His pride has taken over his vision.
I don't think Wade is deserving of the top 3 SG of all time spot. Even though in terms of raw talent, he is obviously a top 3 player at this position. I don't think Wade should be referred as a "future first-ballot Hall of Fame player". No doubt, he is going to the Hall of Fame. But, he is severely overrated. NO, wait, his ACCOMPLISHMENTS are overrated. His skills, I feel, are underrated.
My point? I think Wade has a chance to redeem himself, provided he is remotely healthy. I think Wade should let his pride go, and play the best he possibly could. But, redemption can only occur if Wade lets his pride go.
It would be nice to know what is your opinion on this topic.
Do you think you could do an article using your team ranking to compare all of the NBA's championship-winning teams? Would be really interesting
You Should Defiantly Do An Article On Who Takes The Last Shot For Each NBA Team. It Would Be Quite Interesting
I mı̸̸̸̸̸̸̸̸̸̸̸̸̸̸̸̸̨ade you wipe your screen.
I feel I have to say something about your NBA jersey numbers article. do some research next time. you are a sports writer, you shouldn't make these mistakes. that was a terrible article just because you did not mention two important players: mitch richmond for #23 and clyde drexler for #22. drexler even was on your article cover! that was terrible.
If your gonna write a hate article on the Rockets, by continuing to bash harden and howard. At least get the whole story correct. You're a horrible writer, and just because of that article you should leave journalism.
Before you post an article about comments made by a foreign Rockets player in their foreign tongue, be sure to actually get an ACCURATE translation in proper context instead of just basing it on a random tweet.
Motiejunas never said that Dwight or Harden eat alone. He was asked about food, does he go out and eat together with Dwight/Harden, he said no, they like different food. It sounds like Motiejunas is more of a gourmet type, oysters were mentioned.
This is TERRIBLE journalism as usual...and everyone is on this train to paint the Rockets in the worst possible way. Typical media and their agenda to make villains of certain players. Even the previous quotes by Howard and Harden were WAY overblown and not in proper context, but that's another story.
Hey Adam, could you do something like this,http://bleacherreport.com/articles/2139536-building-the-perfect-nfl-linebacker, for basketball?
Hey Adam, I love the stuff your doing here. Great articles and awesome work. Just wondering if you plan on having the 2014 official re-draft this year? Loved last years, and loved to see how everything turned out on a player-to-player basis. Thanks again for your work here.
How do you think the Hawks off-season is going? Thabo and Bazemore, yikes....not getting Deng stinks.
