I started with Bleacher Report in March 2008 and had a great time reading, reviewing, and of course writing the various columns hosted here. I took a year-long hiatus when I moved into a new role at a new company. But just like Jordan, I came back.

I'm not the most frequent poster or the edgiest, but the thing I enjoy the most is starting good conversations and debate. So at times my pieces can get heated, controversial, and even ludicrously biased, but it's all done with the end goal of sparking discussion.

As for my background, I grew up in central Massachusetts and have stayed loyal with my sports teams through thick and thin. It's been a great decade for Boston, arguably the most successful sports city in the country during the past decade, but it wasn't that way the previous 16 years of my life and I don't expect it to last, so I'm trying to enjoy it as much as I can now. But I'll still be rooting for Boston and my other teams through the good and bad seasons just the same.

I live in New York now which brings some great arguments and debates any time I open my mouth about sports. Obviously I hate the New York Yankees, the Los Angeles Lakers, and the Montreal Canadiens, but I do respect them. I love the idea of the classic sports rivalry and enjoy the few series every year which bring out the passion and hostility that used to exist amongst the majority of teams in pro sports.

Let's get one thing straight... I'm the guy at the game who hates the piped in organ music and horrible pop music, can't stand the thought of cheerleaders at a basketball game, and dies a little bit when I see Paul Pierce and LeBron James hug before tip-off. I live for the sounds of trash talking, the sight of a player recklessly diving headfirst into the stands to save an almost meaningless possession, the special moments where a guy like Rajon Rondo can square up against Kobe Bryant ready to throw down like he did in the 2008 NBA Finals while giving him a look that says, "I'm better than you Kobe". It's the last part that I love about sports the most. Even the biggest homer in sports (excluding Tommy Heinsohn of course) would admit that there's no way Rondo's better than Kobe, but I guarantee you that Rondo is sure that it's true.

And that's what I love about sports. Whether someone is right or wrong when they're making their case, they are passionate and won't be convinced otherwise. That's enough about me, check out some of my articles, share your comments, and add to Bleacher Report yourself.

    With all the other options, I can't seem to figure out why the Knicks are so invested in Jordan Hill.

    Hey Andrew—Dave Mo here, a Bleacher Report Community Coordinator.

    I've been spending time on our Celtics page and read a couple of your old articles. Really on-point do good work.

    Given that you haven't written in a while, I thought I'd check in and see if you're interested in picking up your coverage again. What do you say?

    If not, it would be great if you could give me some feedback on why you decided to stop writing and what we could have done to better serve you. If you wouldn't mind, please shoot me a line at with any thoughts.

    Thanks so much,

    Dave Mo
