    I'm up in Seattle, so we are NBA-less, but it will allow me to change my focus to more of the NBA as a whole. One tip, when you mention another article of yours, I think its a good idea to link that article (there's a link button in the writing tool). If you checkout any of my fantasy basketball reports from earlier, you will notice i linked them all together. When CBS picked up my PG rankings, most readers clicked through to all of my rankings, so the few thousand I got from CBS turned into 10,000+ reads (or somewhere around there). Of course, you don't just want to randomly link your articles, but if they are relevant it never hurts from a usability and SEO standpoint. Keep up the good work.

    Yeah, was well-written, and took a unique POV I hadn't heard before. Keep up the good work.

    I did like the aticle, bu I' a fantasy junkie so I can relate to all of those things. i have noticed that people like shorter paragraphs and numbers, but numbers are hard for the material you were writing about. DOn't sweat it if you don't get a lotta reads, the season is about to tip off and it will be time to shine.

    Thats awesome... I wouldn't say its common (considering how much is on here and how much gets picked), but b/r does have partnerships with fox and cbs, so our top notch material gets picked up. If you keep writing quality stuff like this, you can expect it to happen. Especially fantasy pieces, that's where most of the stuff lands on CBS, on their fantasy news site.

    Keep it up,

    Wow...congratulations! That's great news, especially considering that that was your first article. But yes, B/R has an apparent partnership/syndication with both and, I'm sure that next week, your name will be featured in the B/R blog regarding which articles got on those sites. If there's any indication that you're on the right track, look no further! Keep up the good work.
