hey guys. I have begun my attempted career as a sportswriter and I am wondering if the kind folk of Canis Hoopus would give me some hits. Houndsports.com's senior editor has offered me a chance to do some writing on NBA and NFL topics and I am excited about this. Actually Eric (the site runner of houndsports, not eric in madison) asked me to write a sample article and this is what I wrote and he liked it enough to put it on the site which I found cool.
a few points
1) my day in day out ass-kicking by vjl110 and others in the stats department has made me a much stronger writer/basketball analyst so I thank everyone in the stats departments here. Even if I ultimately go with my gut, being able to better understand stats (i think I actually messed up the usage of RAPM in this post) makes for a more compelling argument
2) I think the Hoopus community will appreciate my insistence on finding a trade a team should make in whatever I am wanting to talk about
let me know what you think thanks a bunch! leave a comment on the article if you want
Also, the Houndsports guys know their fantasy football, really have helped me with my season....so even if I suck, I highly encourage FF players to check their rankings out
