Meet the Staff: Contributor, Sam Spiegelman

Sam Spiegelman

I’m a high school sports reporter for NOLA.com | The New Orleans Times-Picayune. I’m a graduate of the University Of Maryland Philip Merrill College of Journalism, but most importantly, I’m a Long Island native.

Growing up in New York, I have developed fanhoods for the Yankees, Knicks and Jets, so all of the success I’ve enjoyed in baseball has helped balance out the futility in football and basketball. But through and through, I love my sports teams, especially the Knicks, who seemingly are turning a corner.

From Jeff Van Gundy to Latrell Spreewell, Mike Woodson to Carmelo Anthony, and of course Spike Lee, my loyalty lies with the Blue and Orange. I have spent time blogging about the Terps and the Giants, but I am especially excited about bringing you non-stop, up-to-the-minute coverage of New York’s favorite basketball team.
