  • espn.com da favori basketbol ve hayat yazarım.
  • the sports guy olarak bilinir. hasta bostonludur. red sox, patriots, celtics... boston'a ait ne kadar spor takımı varsa ölümüne sever. spor sevgisini babasına borçlu olduğunu hemen her yazısında belirtir. babası ile birlikte her yıl nba draft'ini izleyip, o gecenin hikayesini anlattığı yazıları efsanedir.
  • abd'nin en sevilen spor yazaridir coguna gore..

    "i do not love the nba, the patriots, red sox or larry bird, but i love reading his columns" (dan jones)

  • analoji kullanımında aşmış bir yazardır. kanımca biraz erken yargıya varır, ama sürekli gırgır peşinde olduğundan, fikrine tamamen karşı olsanız da okuması çok keyiflidir. bir diğer özelliği de hayvani uzunlukta yazı yazmasıdır. güzel insandır.
  • yaran bir nba gmleriyle bir dreamchat yazısı

  • sezon başındaki "comparing him with deron williams is like comparing pearl jam to stone temple pilots. don’t waste your time." sözleriyle chris paul'ü övmeye çalışırken deron williams'ı itin götüne sokmuş, boston fanatizmi yüzünden the boston sports guy olarak da bilinen spor yazarı. her zaman böyle apaçi değildir tabi.
  • kazandigi parayi hakeden nadir spor yazarlarindan, muhtesem insan.

    nba ve hakem yetersizliklerinin oyunu nasil baltaladigini anlattigi harika bir yazmis,

  • "testosterone fueled the nba in its heyday. my favorite game ever (and not just because boston won) was game 4 of the 1984 finals, the ultimate example of stacked teams battling with an extra edge. i rewatched it last summer and couldn't get over how it would have been wrecked today. mchale gets tossed for the rambis clothesline. bird gets t'd for nudging cooper out of bounds. kareem gets tossed for nearly slicing off bird's wispy mustache with an elbow. maxwell gets t'd for walking across the lane and choking himself after worthy's missed free throw. on the crucial play of ot, when magic gets switched onto bird and they fight for position down low -- with bird finally draining a turnaround over magic's mug -- the officials would have called magic for a foul before bird's shot happened. six of the iconic moments of the game ... ruined. could they have competed as hard with the current rules? no.

    my single favorite old-school moment of the past two decades happened at the end of game 5 of the 1993 eastern finals, when chicago's jordan, pippen and grant famously blocked four straight charles smith shots to clinch the victory in new york. were the blocks clean? i don't know. did the knicks complain after? no. because you had to watch the whole game -- that play didn't just happen. all four quarters were played with that same cutthroat intensity. unlike today, the officials didn't change their minds midway through the game on what contact was acceptable. they didn't try to manage the game. they let the players decide what happened and intervened when necessary.

    that's basketball. at least, that's what basketball should be. "
