About

PBWA member. NBA Featured Columnist. Contributor to Sheridan Hoops & Hoops Habit.

An unbiased student of the art of basketball.

I hold no allegiance to any active teams or players. That tends to cloud judgement and create bias.

I care more for the game than the business, but I will touch upon the organizational aspect of the NBA when need be. It is unfortunate, but contractual negotiations play a major role in the league as we know it.

As you will find in my NBA Draft coverage and prospect evaluation, all 60 picks and those overlooked have the potential for greatness. Most importantly, not every player must be a star to be an intricate member of their team.

The nameless are often the most important.

If you take anything away from my profile, understand that basketball is an art before it is a business or sport. Once you embrace that truth, you will see the game in an entirely different way.

A beautiful and more gratifying way. The way I see and write of it.

    Also, what you said about the potential in any draft pick and nameless players being the most important, that's fantastic dude! So many people do not get it. This is why I can't explain to my friends that Pablo Prigioni is a great player.

    Hi mate. Just need you to do me a favor here. When WWE described Jeff Hardy as “one of the most popular WWE Champions in history” in their bio of him on his Alumni page, did they mean he was one of the most popular guys when he WWE Champion, or just one of the most popular guys overall? And what does ‘WWE Champions’ mean here; a WWE Champion (like John Cena is now) or any Champion in WWE like Curtis Axel or Ambrose for example. Thanks in advance, Maxwell!
