I'm an NBA guy and always will be. I do love college basketball, but there's nothing quite like watching the best players in the world compete against each other.
I became an Atlanta Hawks Featured Columnist for Bleacher Report on December 12th, 2011. I later decided to spend a majority of my time writing elsewhere while hardly writing for BR, thus revoking my Featured Columnist position.
Bear in mind that a decent amount of the stuff I have written on bleacher report is plagued by my naiveté. I like to think that over the last year, from 2011 to mid-2012, I've grown exponentially as both a writer and student of the game. If you read some of my more recent work, I think that is fairly evident.
Love me some Hawks, Falcons, Braves, and Mizzou Tigers.
My favorite article I've done here on BR is a debate with Featured Columnist Adam Fromal as we both state our cases for the best Hawk of all time:
I was an intern at Bleacher Report over the Fall of 2011 and am very thankful for the opportunity. I recommend the internship to all aspiring writers. It is quite a bit of work, but it will certainly improve your writing.

Daniel appreciate the love and kind words.
Great question about LeBron extremely tough to answer. Right now I would say LeBron is the most skilled player in the NBA, but struggles because he is not a fluid scorer. He has yet to have a coach challenge him to refine his scoring. Pat Riley would have been great for him in that regard. He is by far the best perimeter defender in the game and is arguably the best. People tend to believe his passing is the best part of his game, really it is his I.Q. He is similar to Magic and Bird in that sense that he knows the game so well.
All-time is tough because he, along with Wade, are about to change the game. LeBron is adding a post- up game not to score but to facilitate. He is implementing the triangle offense into his game which should allow him to utilize his best attributes.
Hope this answers your question. Thanks again for love
nice articles tho
Magic better than Michael? No way!
Also please tell your Hawks to stay away from Chris Paul and Dwight Horward in the upcoming free agency LOL.
Hey,Daniel, can't wait until u write something new, I think u have a lot of insight about the greatest game on earth basketball. Also about your top 10 list don't u think Wilt and Russell are little overrated they played in a time when the centers were the size of a SF in today's game,there was very little talent and the defensive schemes were not that complex, and there weren't any 3 sec violation calls which is the reason why Wilt got to park in the lane and just dunk. To me Shaq was a lot better than both of them he dominated in the 90' and 2000's which had a lot of talent. In his day he had competition who was Wilt and Russell's competition other than each other. It was a great list though and you may be right about Magic Johnson being the best to ever touch a basketball.
