From kindergarten intramurals all the way up through my high school and AAU career, the hardwood was my second home. But then I tore my ACL 11 games into my senior year.
Now, I'm an NBA writer at B/R.
I’m pursuing a degree in journalism at Seton Hall, and also cover the Pirates for the school paper.
Oh, and it’s true what they say, you know—the ball never lies.

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,
Do you really consider Shumpert to be better than DeMarcus Cousins and Greg Monroe? I know this is a little late, but I just saw your article and you said "I can pick out only a handful of players that I would consider truly better than Shump: Kyrie Irving, Paul George, Jrue Holiday and John Wall. That’s it."
And yes, I know you said you only 'truly' consider them better, but still, cousins and Monroe>Shumpert without a doubt. In terms of the future, Cousins>Shumpert>Monroe, but right now, Shumpert is far behind
