My name is Kevin McClernand and I reside in Colorado Springs, Colorado, working for Lockheed Martin, and am a graduate of Penn State University. I started writing for Bob Long Sports in April 2011 and I now, along with Bill Golden, host the Pick and Roll Podcast on BLS. I also update the site’s NBA and NFL Mock Draft pages that will continue to be updated up until the drafts occur. I mainly focus on the NBA, College Basketball, and the NFL.

    Best example of a team of almost no clear superstar but great team chemistry is the 2004 Detroit Pistons. They didn’t have anyone on their roster that are even considered to be Hall of Fame candidates and they were way more defense oriented. Yet watching them practically sweep the team I root for (consisting of Kobe/Shaq as well as Malone/Payton all future HOF players) really showed it’s way more important about how your team connects and plays the game in sync rather than just which names you have on your team. Sadly to me, the NBA isn’t really like that anymore and it’s all about getting the best players and worrying about the chemistry later, but that also makes the game more exciting.
