Best General Basketball Writers

With Hollinger gone, I need my morning basketball read fix. Who do are your favorite general basketball writers (meaning that team-based bloggers and writers are excluded).

Re: Best General Basketball Writers

Hollinger was one of your favorites?

I actually enjoy Bill Simmons' work. Yes, he's a Celtics fan but many of his articles have nothing to do with them. I've heard the book he wrote is a great read. I'll have to check it out sometime.

I read his book and enjoyed it for the most part. But I read it the same way I would read one of you fools posts, from the viewpoint of a biased fan.

Re: Best General Basketball Writers

I love simmons, but he's an entertainer. Doesn't have the grasp of the game that a guy like Hollinger or Zach Lowe does. The book, however, is terrific. His Hall of Fame pyramid was spectacular.

He's been moved to Denver to do some Nuggets-focused stuff this season, but he also writes about league-wide stuff: Matt Moore. Writes for CBS and founded Hardwood Paroxysm. @hpbasketball is his main handle.

Re: Best General Basketball Writers

Abrams and Lowe are awesome. Simmons is great for something entertaining - and as has already been said: it comes across like what you see here from our brighter posters, but in long form.

Not sure how popular he is around these parts, but I read a lot of Chris Sheridan during the lockout. Not so much anymore.
