Decided to try something new!

Hey guys, other than the usual posts, I've decided to try something new for the next bit. Every second day, or if I'm really busy it may take 3 days, I'm going to post a ... Hmm, how do I say it, an insightful post about one of the many great players to play in the NBA. I know I'm going a little off my general topic but I thought it'd be an awesome idea!
