I'm an Online News Producer & K-12 sports blogger for Education Week by day, basketball diehard by night.
Was born and raised in the Philly area, but I've spent the past eight years in the District of Columbia. Graduated from Georgetown University in 2009. Spent my four years there in the pep band, so you'll have to forgive my undying bias toward Jeff Green, Roy Hibbert and company.
I'm also one of the few Sixers fans remaining on the planet, for what that's worth.

What's your opinion on this trade?
Evan Turner and Spencer Hawes for Kendrick Perkins, Jeremy Lamb, Perry Jones and Thunder's 2013 1st round pick. It has already been reported that the Thunder are interested in Evan Turner.
Personally I love this trade. The main reason is because it would give the Sixers a third 1st round pick in the loaded 2013 draft. Also both Evan Turner and Spencer Hawes have contracts that expire at the end of the season and we all know there is no way either of them are coming back (Evan wants to win and will be replaced in the draft and Hinkie won't pay Hawes if he already has the future Center on the roster in Nerlens Noel) so why not get what we can for them now? The Jazz didn't take the advantage of trading away their expiring contracts of Al Jefferson and Paul Millsap which could have landed them a first rounder. Also by adding Lamb and Jones this trade would add to the good quality of young players on the roster. Perkins would fill the void of a center for the rest of the season and then would be moved in the offseason. Also and most importantly, this trade would cause the Sixers to lose more games this season, it sucks to lose but it's what's best for the team.
Thank you for some good articles Bryan
Hey i just got done reading your article about kobe vs lebron. Im glad you ended with kobe seeing as how ive been a laker fan my whole 30 year life span. I just wish someone would realize and acknowledge that they came into the league under different circumstances and stats will reflect that. If kobe was a starting and playing 25 minutes a game from out the gate like lebron, his career stats would be higher and at a pace more similar to lebron. Plus he was a skinny undersized gaurd, Lebron is a beast and has been 6'8 265 since he was like 16, it makes a difference. As a basketball fan, no one has been more exciting to watch play the game as kobe has been the past 15 years winning or losing.
Come on Bryan I trusted you as my GM but you just let me down. My fake Sixers aren't impressing anyone. Sniffle* I'm sorry but I think its time for a new front office gonna have to let you go. A bad Sixers in real life is bad enough but a fake on too, that is just down right offensive.
Please make a GOOD article about basketball
Why are you a Yankees' fan as a Philly native? That's like...against the rules man.
I'm at the University of Chicago. And lucky you, because Chicago may or may not be the greatest city in the world. Ha.
Thank you sir! Glad you enjoyed it.
