About

I came to Bleacher Report after a stint in both sports radio and as a sports writer in the Pittsburgh area.

While I still work part-time in the newspaper business, I accepted a paid position with Bleacher Report in 2011 covering college football. I've since moved on as a paid NBA writer, one of my biggest passions.

I'm very passionate about the New York Knicks, but love to cover the NBA in general. I also love to cover the NBA Draft and have always done a lot of work regarding the guys ready to come into the NBA.

In addition to my writing for Bleacher report, I host three pocasts and dabble in other areas of the sports media.

Getting paid to express your opinion about the game that you love, well there's no better job in the world.

    Another interloper talking about what he thinks the Bulls need. And of course, you're wrong.

    Do you really think bench players win championships?

    I'm sure you must have seen this, but The Week magazine used your arguments in your Heat article - http://theweek.com/article/index/229728/how-long-will-the-miami-heats-nba-reign-last

    FYI Matt, Carmelo and Amare are the NBA equivalent of Michael Vick and are championship Kryptonite. Enjoy many futile seasons with your beloved Knicks

    Fatty Matt, I found Michael Keefe got more stupid than you, he's suggesting JKidd, Fisher to replace JLin (if Lin bolts), Nash at about their ages, but absolutely better than these 2 soon to be retired slowpokes.

    "NBA Draft 2012: Projections for Thomas Robinson and Final Four's Top Stars" was by far the worst basketball related article i have read in BR so far. congratulations.

    WOW. That guy obviously didn't read the stories Matt wrote about Lin becoming an NBA star and the perfect fit as Knicks PG. All Matt did in the article in question is point out that Lin was running D'Antoni's system and they were winning with Melo out. There were always questions about Melo fitting in to D'Antoni's system and it looked like at the time that Lin was extending Coach D's Knicks career; which would have been bad for Melo. I fail to see how that is racism.
