    if he's one of the greatest of all time how can he be average? since your such a stat buff cause apparently that's the only way you judge talent is pete maravich the great college player cause he averaged 40 points a game?

    ignorant is you completely dissin kobe like he's the worst player ever. He's one of the most clutch nba players ever and a great leader. Not to mention hes one of the best defensive guards ever. Your bias over d-wade is ridiculous so don't even say you're unbiased. Take wade's nuts of your mouth and i might be able to hear your argument better.

    Hey Rakim,
    just wrote a new article on the Bulls and their mind-set in the playoffs going forward. It's an interesting angle I haven't ever heard from anyone else and I would love to hear your thoughts on it. Unfortunately BR didn't put it up on the site because they need to take care of their featured columnists. Thanks in advance.

    Hey Rakim,

    I wrote the article on Rose's future I mentioned to you. Check it out and let me know what you think when you have a chance. Thanks.

    I wrote after the playoffs last year and in articles this season that Thibodeau got outcoached in the playoffs last year.

    As for all the articles flooding the site, I think they ought to give preference to somebody that writes about the team all the time, rather than a bunch of carpetbaggers. They also ought to look at the quality of the article and what it's about. Any time a big story comes up on this site, so many people scurry to put something out, and most of it is repetive crap and you see one after the other. I never write what other people write. In almost all cases, I take a different angle.

    This site could be so much better if they would understand that, just like Thibodeau would be a better coach if he could understand the points I made in my article.

    Hey Rakim,

    For some reason, my article on Thibodeau's decision not to sit Rose late in the game never made it to the Bulls page, so it didn't get the exposure it deserved. I would love to hear your opinion on it. Thanks.

    Everyone's entitled to their opinion, I believe that yours is wrong. The top two SF in the game are LeBron and Deng, then there's everybody else.

    I also have to question your knowledge of the game of basketball when you say that Deng is not even third team all-defense.

    Thanks for the comment. I think if you are not objective, you have no credibility as a writer, and he has none with me. I root for the teams I'm a fan of, but not blindly like him. He doesn't give any other team credit.

    Then, he has the nerve to say he knows more about basketball than me. This from the guy who a couple of weeks ago said Rose was 100 percent, when anyone who knows basketball would know he wasn't close to it and won't be the rest of this season. I really don't think he knows the game whatsoever, and that's why he uses so many stats. Anyone can look up stats to write an article, but being able to form an educated opinion without relying just on that shows knowledge.

    Earlier in his career with Bleacher Report, I used to notice some articles from him on the site before they were edited. The writing was unbelievably bad. I wouldn't have wanted to be the editor. There were also a couple of times when he wrote some articles that were very close to what I wrote shortly after I wrote it. It wasn't on something that everybody would have written either. It was kind of off the beaten path. I showed it to someone who used to show up on the site quite a bit and was one of the top comments writers on BR, and he thought those articles were more than coincidentally close to what I wrote. He actually suggested I contact BR to check it out. I never did that, but I always wondered about it, so I have never held him fondly in my heart.

    When he said I was jealous of him because he had more knowledge of basketball than me, I laughed out loud.
