About

Writer. Student. Legend.

While majoring in journalism at Seton Hall (’17), I have also served as an NBA writer at Bleacher Report since the summer of 2013. During my time here, I’ve covered the New York Knicks, Los Angeles Lakers and Brooklyn Nets. Now I write about the New Orleans Pelicans.

I’m also a member of B/R’s Breaking News Team, a columnist for SB Nation’s NetsDaily and a staff writer for Seton Hall’s student newspaper, The Setonian.

Follow me on twitter (@TJDhoops) or shoot me an email (thomasduffynba@gmail.com) with any questions, comments or inquiries.

Oh, and it’s true what they say, you know—the ball never lies.

    Thomas I don't think the MJ vs. Corey Benjamin one on one game was as one sided as you suggest.

    This article, from Nov 1999, states that the score was 11-9.

    of course your bum a** wants to start a controversy over what newton said although he stated he has high respect for tom brady before. But any decent journalist would actually look into that instead of posting your ridiculous article. Proving you are a terrible journalist who just likes to create make believe controversy.

    Please, do not talk about jimmer fredette if you have no idea what your talking about, wanna talk stats? lets talk stats, you mention he averages 28% from the field yet you fail to mention he only averages 3 FG attempts a game, and most of those FGs are shots he creates himself, not easy wide open shots, way to go judging a book by its cover, lets go on to 3pt % shall we? he doesn't even average >1< 3pt attempt a game, he averages 0.9<<< in 3pt attempts, thats right 0.9, so to bring up his % makes no sense, if anything you should mention facts, if you have seen games, you must be aware that the pelicans barely EVER look for jimmer fredette, he never gets the ball to do his thing, hes just there standing in the corner wide open at times, yet no pass, its not his fault he hasn't made an impact, he hasn't been allowed to, so please, before posting another jimmer article, do your homework, your misinforming people about jimmer and making it seem like hes not producing, when the reason hes not producing, its because hes not allowed to, he doesn't ever get the ball on offense, watch games, it just shows you just read the boxscore and post articles without having the complete analysis on the topic, maybe redeem yourself and post a jimmer article mentioning all i just did, ive watched every single game of jimmers career since he joined the nba, i can sure as hell say i know more about jimmer than you do.

    How about an article predicting West and East All stars for upcoming season
    I have a feeling Gasol will be voted in as starter for West

    Hi there, mate. So, I like your articles, see? Just a tip, though, don't ever talk about the Clippers "owning" L.A in a Lakers article.

    That'll be all. Keep up the good work.

    wait. so are you playing for a university or???

  • I'm a sophomore in high school, my dream is also to make it big in the world of Journalism! Right now I write sports articles all the time, no one see's them unless I have some kind of project, but I read them when I get the chance! I also play basketball, going into my first year of varsity basketball! I can't wait for the challenge, and to get better everyday over the next few years and hopefully beyond! No matter what my goal is to be a Sports analyst/writer, it is something I am VERY passionate about. I read your article on Derrick Rose, and his ACL tear. I pray that you make a FULL recovery and continue your Hoop Dreams! The article was very well written, and had tons of facts! I was really surprised to see how young you are, because usually Sports writers on websites are well out of college, and deep into their professions! Just wanted to say you are an inspiration to me, and maybe one day we will meet up writing and/or hooping one day!

    God Bless bro,
    Trice High
