Best Sports Writers
A best writer can write a whole universe of beautiful and delicious things about a "dried fruit" and makes you craving for it, like it was something you've never seen or tasted before. He does such again, and again, and again but you'll never grow tired or get saturated of it and still crave for more. That's him!
He write his stories very simply then he analyze them in such a way where all you can say in the end is simply "WOW! "
There's not that many writers around here anymore who can write as best as him.
"His writing style is very addicting! He can raise your blood pressure or bring a well of tears in your eyes in one simple sentence. Not too many writers nowadays have the gift to do such."
Great insights for a young writer of his age. His style and wit proves that excellent sports writing isn't extinct yet. He will be among the great ones someday. That's for sure.
As a life long sports fan, hands down, the best I have ever read. At one time or another, his writing has brought out every possible human emotion. His columns will be missed
SI has published some very fine writers---Reilly is certainly one of them.
He is awesome he knows what he is talking about unlike many others
Entertaining and accurate. Simply the easiest to read.
Love to disagree with him. Yet, difficult to when he really nails a topic. I wonder what the chalk board has to say.
He looked better with a beard.
He was almost elected Commissioner of Basketball for crying out loud.
No Boston sportswriter has bested him
Uniquely talented... Not just the greatest sportswriter of our time, but perhaps one of the best magazine writers...
Gary Smith is a great writer, who happens to write about sports.
his sentences and the way he writes drags you into his stories, and never bore you. he knows his sports.
finds a way to interest any reader in his stories.
Deford was very good---found humor and pathos in sports. A bit hammy for some.
Even a non sports fan can find his articles thought provoking.
Always makes me think about what he gets me laughing about
He writes simply, but accurately and supported by facts. You don't have to look at history to know that he is telling the truth. He writes well and comprehensively.
The best sports writer in the Philippines indeed.
the walking sports encyclopedia
knowledgable in almost every sports
Quality of his prose is outstanding
I'm a kid I have no idea but he gets information out there.All about the stats right
No one better now or ever.
Easily the best writer of this bunch. A profound understanding of both society and sport and the way their interaction impacts us all.
An insider that really puts you inside the action.
TO keep the NBA from tanking.
There are 14 teams in the NBA who will not be in the playoffs.
I would wait until there are 25 games to go. (This number is arbitrary) I would take the bottom 14 teams and track their record for the rest of the year. Maybe the bottom last 10 teams.
The draft would go in the order of their w/l standing for the remaining 25 games. The team that wins the most game from the 25 remaining games get the #1 pick, etc.
All professional sports should implement something like this.
Best there is, has seen it all and reports it in a valid unbiased way.
no hype no big predictions just the facts.
some good books too.
no hype just the facts.
