What are we talking about here and is it something I can help with?

Yeye. I trust your NBA knowledge more than the idiot writers for most real websites, and your writing style is easy to read, so there's no reason not to take a look at it daily.

I'm glad you enjoy it. If you check daily you'll at least know the score of every game and see all the interesting highlights and stat-lines and whatnot.

The NBA blog I started about a month ago (nba247365.com). You can help by telling everyone you know that it's the greatest thing since sliced bread.

Sure man, I already read unhealthy amounts of NBA articles so I'd be happy to check it out and spread the word around here. A few of my friends lurk ISH but don't post, I'll let 'em know.

Thanks for taking the time to look. By the way, I was just kidding about telling everyone it's the greatest thing since sliced bread. If you don't actually like it I'd rather receive some constructive criticism. If you do like it, then yeah, proceed with the sliced bread plan.

If you really want me to give you some criticism/feedback I'd be happy to do so. I usually keep that stuff to myself unless it's specifically requested just so not to be a dick. I was about to be a writing tutor at UIC before they booted me.

Give me a few weeks to really get into it, finals are this week and next. If you have any favorite pieces send me a PM with the links to them?

For sure. I like the overall layout too. You put a hell of a lot of effort into it...

Meh, I think I'm pretty consistent. You can just go with whatever's on the front page at the time.

Started watching him when I was 5 or 6 in 94-95 and became obsessed. He was everything I wanted to be, lol.

6 years old: Work in McDonalds

13 years old: Maths Teacher

15 years old: Journalist/ Pro Player

19 years old: Journalist/ Pro Player

What I'm doing now: Currently i'm just playing pro in my country, but if i want i can get in college to try to be a journalist, cause i had good grades in high school and cause i represented my national team more than 8 times i have guaranteed the status of "high level competition player" which make easy to get in college.

A lot of people don't like the clock, I'm going to get rid of it.
