Hello, my name is Hadarii Jones. I have been a sports fan all of my life and have a particular love for roundball. I will write about other sports however, because I feel myself drawn to the emotion and the drama and the spectacle of different sports. I would like to thank Bleacher Report for giving me a platform in which to share my views in a debatable manner. Since I have been a member I have been witness to some amazing writers. I won't call any names, but thank you for the criticism, and for helping me grow as a writer.

    Hey, Hadarii. Your work made my job as easy and fun as it can be.

    Thanks for being my first fan! You just gave me some serious ammunition in the eternal quest to make my parents proud (pseudo-joking, I think).

    Keep doing your thing.

    Hey there! Thanks so much for fanning me on here :) I really appreciate the support and, naturally, I've returned the tanning favor. I apologize for the delay in getting back to you. I got behind in my B/R messages in late December…and kinda of just willfully ignored the whole situation for six weeks. I feel like a jag about it, but at least I'm finally rectifying the situation. Anyway ;) Thanks again! And feel free to hit me up on Twitter: @Blamberr. <3

    A couple years ago I messaged you about what it takes to become a great sportswriter and you told me to get back to you when I had stuff for you to read. The link at the bottom of this comment is to whom I currently write for. I did what you said and began to build up my writing skills and worked until I could achieve a writing position on a blog.

    This is only the beginning for me but I wanted to thank you for the inspiration and confidence you gave me. Hope to hear from you soon.

    Kobe's a career 25 ppg scorer on 55% True Shooting. The average for a shooting guard is 53.5% True shooting. That's not all time scorer material. Jordan was 31 ppg on 58%.

    If all we ever did was pick out the highlights of a players career, everyone would look like an all time great. With all those amazing games Kobe's had, he's had a lot of really bad ones to balance it out, and his career averages reflect that.

    You do realize the majority of the educated basketball community considers Kobe to be something of a joke. I do not take that approach, because though his play has been drastically overrated by his followers, I think there is something to be said for playing at a high level for 17 years.

    It's difficult to convey this to many Laker fans, as they don't even have a basic understanding of what makes a player great (like you demonstrated).
