About

I'm an experienced sports journalist that has firm goals of covering the NBA for a major media outlet or utilizing my writing skills to work for a professional team in the media relations department. I have extensive practical work experience that will make me an asset in the sports and/or journalism field, and would like my work here on Bleacher Report to assist me in getting recognized by the right people in the industry.

- As sports editor for KnightNews.com, I was the lead reporter for University of Central Florida's online paper, KnightNews.com. UCF boasts the second-largest student body in the United States, meaning I've published for an audience of 60,000 people. As sports editor, I got credentials to cover the Orlando Magic, where I got access to be in the locker room, conduct pre and post-game interviews, and attend all team media functions.

I have multiple 1-on-1 interviews with plenty of NBA stars, including Derrick Rose, James Harden and Ryan Anderson. You can view my interviews at my YouTube page: http://www.youtube.com/user/TheNBAllen

I have been nationally published in outlets such as Fox Sports and CBS Sports, while also being published in mid-major outlets such as the Orlando Sentinel, Sun Sentinel and KnightNews. I have written for Bleacher Report on and off for five years, and currently am an Orlando Magic Featured Columnist.

I hope to be nationally syndicated from writing with B/R and hope that my skills can be seen by people in the industry.

    Pedro Heizer needs to keep his deal.
    He quoted to Jonathan Guario "@Jonathan if the superteam comes true I'll stuff a fork full of food up my mouth and write an article telling the world how wrong I was and that you were right."
    Pedro still hasn't kept his deal.
    Pedro commented on the article Who says it's hard to 3-peet a championship-everybody by Miami.
    There used to be 26 comments now there is 25 wonder where the one went?

    I thought you might like to check out my latest piece about the possibility of Pat Riley and the Miami Heat creating a "Superteam" of Dwyane Wade, LeBron James, and Chris Bosh:
