A quick note from your new site manager

Kirby Lee-USA TODAY Sports

Hi everyone. As you should know by now, Mike Prada officially let go of his role as site manager here a few weeks ago so he could focus his efforts on his full-time job as editor of SB Nation NBA. At the time, no new site manager was announced, because we didn't have one lined up to fill the role.

Today, I'm here to announce that I'm officially taking over Mike's position as site manager for Bullets Forever. For those of you who know Mike and I's differing styles, this might seem like a confusing direction to take the site, so I've prepared a FAQ to hopefully help put your fears to rest.

What do you plan on changing about the site as the new site manager?


Mike has put together an amazing staff of writers that I'm incredibly humbled to be working alongside. This talented group can cover the team from a variety of perspectives and each of them brings unique skills and talents to the table. Nothing is going to change about what gets covered or what gets emphasized here. If you liked the site before, I'll do everything I can to make sure you continue to enjoy it. (Except for the not having Mike Prada part. I tried to offer him a freelance position here, but he hasn't gotten back to me.)

Does this mean more content about Kevin Durant coming to the Wizards? Because that's getting super annoying.

I can promise you we won't be doing more KD coverage than we're already doing, but I can't promise you that we'll do less, because then I'd be lying.

Are you excited about taking this position?

At first, I really, really, really didn't want to take this spot, because I knew I wouldn't be able to live up to the expectations that have been established here, and there are so many great people out there who have been #blessed with incredible talent and could probably do this better than me, including some on this very staff.

But at the same time, yes, I am excited to take on this challenge. I've been writing at this site since 2007, back when John Wall was a sophomore in high school. I've seen how this site has blossomed into what it is today and understand what it takes to keep this site headed in the right direction. On the exterior, it might seem like I'm in it for the clicks, LOLs and RTs, but I can promise you, there's a lot of hard work that goes into making thing site run smoothly behind the scenes, and I'm ready to tackle that side of things to keep this site moving in the right direction.

How can I reach out to you if I have a question about the site?

Okay, we've had our fun. But seriously, this is a joke, right?

Nope, this completely real, but I promise you, no one is more surprised this is happening right now than your new site manager.

But that's enough about me, how about those Wizards?
