About

I'm a 19-year-old basketball writer from England and a Featured Columnist here at B/R for the New York Knicks. Though I'm a fan, I like to look at things objectively and break down both sides of every issue regarding the team.

My work has been featured on Knicks Now and The Knicks Wall. I've also appeared on Atlanta's 92.9 The Game to discuss the NBA's growing presence in Europe.

Writing and talking about sports are things I love to do, so don't hesitate to keep the conversation going in the comments section or send me a message.

Outside of writing, I'm a Combined Honours student at Newcastle University.

    Hey, Ciaran just wondering can't the knicks structure Carmelos contract in a way like this

    Next season- 25 Million
    2015- 13 million
    2016- 15 million
    2017- 20 million
    2018- 17 million

    In a way that when a lot of marquee free agents are going we have more to spend ? like the money amount is probbaly wrong lol but i hope you understand what i was trying to say. Since next year is basically a wasted year why not pay him 25 million then the offseason we have more money to spend and just pay 13 million

    Should the Knicks trade for Ricky Rubio? He has a low salary and the Timberwolves are doing way worse then they wanted.
    How about this

    Knicks get:
    Ricky Rubio
    2014 2nd round pick

    Timberwolves get:
    Beno Udrih
    Raymond Felton
    MWP

    Should the Knicks try and trade for anyone over the next few weeks? I have heard about Andre Miller in some trade rumours?

    Hey Ciaran what do you think about this if it actually could happen lol


    Sacramento- Tyson Chandler, Goran Dargic
    Suns- Carmelo, Outlaw, Freddate
    Knicks- Okafor, Marcus T, Jason Thompson, Archie Goodwin and all of the suns 4 1st rounders and the Kings 1st rounder.

    I mean i know its terrible but Kings get a front court partner for cousins and a great PG.
    Suns get there superstar
    Knicks get expiring contracts. The can use Marcus and Jason Thompson as just trading pieces. Keep Archie who is pretty good defensively and then fire Mills get Donnie Walsh or Glen back.

    I'm sure one of the pick will be top 10.

    We trade the rest for a top 5 or top 10.

    Draft- Joel Embiid or Parker.

    Have one last down year.

    Then 2015

    Splurge all out.

    PG- Rondo or Tony Parker hopefully
    SG- Iman
    SF- Tim
    PF- Love
    C- Joel Embidd.

    or

    PG- Rondo or Tony
    SG- Tim/Iman
    SF- Parker
    PF- Love
    C- Brook Lopez or Marc Gasol

    I know i'm just being delusional but i honestly think this would be amazing if it happened lol

    Read your article re firing Woody. Knicks are expecting Jeremy Tyler to join them in mid to late December and then TC in early Jan. This will change everything and with the EC sucking so bad, the NYK should be able to move into 3rd place and be healthy going into playoffs (barring new injuries). This is if they don't make a trade. They proved they have the CHeat's # last year, and this year, being healthy and having healthy bigs, they could fare better against the Pacers in a 7 game series. I know it looks about as bad as it can get right now but the Knicks have a shot and I think they will give Woody some time to see what he can do with TC, JT, and any trade they may make.

    Hey Ciaran what do you think of the legistics and reality of a trade between Knicks and Suns and

    Knicks send Suns: Jr, Felton, Amare Metta or Hardaway

    Suns send Knicks: Miles 28th pick Goran

    Knicks send Grizzlies: Beno and Metta or Hardaway

    Grizzlies send Knicks: Jamaal Franklin and cash

    Hey Ciaran,
    I have another trade idea..What's your opinion on this trade:

    Knicks receive: Dennis Schroeder, draft rights to Lucas Nogueira

    Hawks receive: Toure Murray, Cole Aldridge, Kenyon Martin, cash (from OKC)

    Hi Ciaran, I'm currently a college student in hopes of becoming a statistician & a journalist. My college professor suggested that I keep in contact with someone in the field to help me out. I was wondering if you could give me some tips to get me started. For example, what do I write about, what do people find interesting, etc. Thank you for your time.
