A graduate of the University of Missouri's School of Journalism, I began my career as a sports writer in Atlanta and San Diego, covering hockey, basketball, football and baseball for United Press International, Journal Newspapers and Star-News Group.

Sports writing highlights include covering the NCAA Final Four in Atlanta and the Super Bowl in Pasadena. A bigger highlight was walking around a golf course in Atlanta while interviewing Mickey Mantle and Roger Maris. Magic Johnson is one of the best interviews in sports - there's no one more engaging and passionate about the game he played and the business he now runs.

I subsequently became West Coast Editor for Fairchild Publications in Los Angeles, and was a freelance writer for Advertising Age, Adweek, USAir magazine, Los Angeles magazine and the Los Angeles Times. Today, I run a boutique communications agency in Los Angeles and New York called Howard Ruben Communications (Howard Ruben PR). You can find me at howardruben.com or on Twitter @howardruben.

    You wrote a piece on why Bynum should be traded.

    How about this scenario?

    Andrew Bynum to the Denver Nuggets for Galionari + their 2012 1st round draft pick.

    With that pick, they can pick Fab Melo, who fits in perfectly with Mike Brown's defensive stance and with the right tutoring (Abdul Jabbar)... can become a stud.

    Might be better picks.. but this to me is the best one they can hope for.

    I was thinking of Heats maybe... but they obviously won't offer any of their big 3....
