What would the NBA look like if Chris Paul was a Laker? I explore that alternative reality in my latest column. #nba  
I explore the vastly different NBA landscape had the Chris Paul trade to the Los Angeles Lakers not been vetoed.

Do NBA trade deadline deals ever work? Not really. Find out more here. #nba  
This NBA trade deadline was the most active in history. Does history suggest that the teams involved will be positively impacted by their moves?

Some predictions for the second half of the NBA season #nba  
With the most important basketball yet to be played, it's time to once again make some utterly ridiculous predictions.

Some were good. Most were bad. But hey, at least I'm transparent #nba
Preseason predictions are a ridiculous, yet necessary part of the job. Now that the All-Star game is upon us, it's time to look back on mine to see how off I was.

There's something you should know about Westbrook before considering him an MVP candidate #nba  
Once you begin to peel back the layers of Russell Westbrook's season, it may not be as impressive as you think.

My crazy thoughts on how to reinvigorate rivalries in the NBA. #nba
Rivalries in the NBA may be a thing of the past, but there is a way to fix that, as extreme as it may be.

No other draft in recent memory has as many big misses as well as hidden gems. What would happen if it could be redone?
#nba  
It's been said that the NBA Draft is the ultimate crap shoot, and no class in recent memory proves that to be true more than 2011.

We could see something we've never seen before this season. #nba  
The NBA has had no shortage of surprises this season, but the biggest surprise of all could be who plays on the biggest stage.

Story
Tagline
Free agent sports writer
Introduction
I am an emphatically opinionated, insanely creative, articulate, and passionate sports writer. I have a deep understanding of all sports, their associated rules, the idiosyncrasies of their players, and an engrained passion to provide a unique angle in my coverage.  I think sports sit in a rare cross section between real life and our fantasies. They provide a way for us to escape, but also to engage with real life people with a shared passion.
