About

Born Christmas Eve of 1976 and raised in the suburb to end all suburbs, Levittown, NY, I am a child of the 80's. I remember Saturday morning cartoons (the real ones, drawn by hand, not the CGI stuff that is produced today), starting lineup figures (somewhere in my parents' attic lies a box with hundreds), and movies that cost less then a small fortune to attend.

An internship with the New York Knicks turned into a 3 year stint working in their Basketball Operations department, during which I was fortunate to work with and learn from some of the brightest and most passionate people in sports.

After parting ways, I partnered with a small group of "NBA lifers" and ran Summer Camps for a handful of NBA players around the country including Paul Pierce and Shaquille O'Neal. I am proud to say that I have been dunked on by Shaq, and it was awesome.

A proud Alumnus of Tau Epsilon Phi, my pledge name in college was of course, Hoops.

My passions in life are simple: family, friends, sports and music. Music runs through my veins—my aunt is a member of both the Songwriters and Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. This is a totally useless fact when it comes to sports and Bleacher Report, but it is incredibly cool and I will brag about it until the end of time.

You can find me on Twitter where I'll post links to my articles and stories up there as well, along with some random tidbits, useless facts, and good music to check out. Feel free to follow me, I'll reciprocate.

If you have questions, comments, think I've lost my mind, would like me to write about something specific or anything else, just drop me a line. I'll get back to you as soon as I can.

The greatest thing about being a sports fan is the raw emotion it produces in all of us, leading to some epic discussions and debates.

Thanks for reading,

Rick

    Thanks for the compliment, Rick! I really appreciate it.

    And don't mention it on the Price piece. That was very well written and was about a subject that I personally agree with. Nobody should be above the game, especially the umps. They are there for one reason—to keep the game moving.
