I just talked to one of my NBA sources. He said the Sheed-Chandler trade has not been discussed by the two teams. It won't happen. Sorry to get you so excited.

Terry,

Looks like you've hit the big time.

Hoopshype is now using this blog as a recognized source.

Your report on the Sheed rumor is front and center as I type this. I bet they won't post your retraction, though.

Better watch what you write, now, lol.

Can I ask why you wouldn't check with your "source" before you wrote your initial write up? Posting rumors and retracting them less than 24 hours later really doesn't look good.

So what if it turned out to be a FALSE rumor? Terry told you it was a RUMOR. He never said it WAS true. He asked how you would feel about it if it happened. It was food for thought. I'm sure glad it wasn't true though.

Besides the Free Press ran the Rasheed for Kevin Garnett rumor. I could have told you then it was not going to happen.
So what is the harm?
Did you write them and criticize them when they wrote that rumor that was started by Pistons fans?

Yeah you cowards who are too afraid to use your names don't bother me. Do you know what a rumor is?
If I believe something is going to happen you will know it.

Mr. Foster, sorry for leading you in the wrong direction. I posted this on the Pistonstalk.com forum as a joke and it has already received national coverage just 2 days later. This is what I wanted, but I didn't think this would seriously happen.

This is bigger than I ever expected, but that goes to show ya that these relable sources are 9 times outta 10 fulla crap.

Sorry Detroit for getting your hopes up, and stop trusting a 16 year old on a message board who's only relation to the team is the fact that Allan Houston is my cousin. This is classic

Hello. My name is Keith and I'm a spoiler junkie. This is Spoilers Anonymous, a weekly column here ... (SPOILERS BELOW) Lost Too many things to list here are posted on AICN .
Nice to see some decent content for a change. FYI, I log on today and see that we've got a new feature, the 'Flag blog' button, which is inconveniently located between the 'Get Your Own Blog' and 'Next Blog' buttons so that we would presumably be getting some flags on error alone (although if one happens to notice it, you can unflag a blog) But that's a trivial matter. What concerns me is this: When a person visiting a blog clicks the "Flag?" button in the Blogger Navbar, it means they believe the content of the blog may be potentially offensive or illegal. We track the number of times a blog has been flagged as objectionable and use this information to determine what action is needed. This feature allows the blogging community as a whole to identify content they deem objectionable. Ok, see the problem with this? What's "objectionable. And there lies the problem: what is objectionable? Just my 2 cents, Color Contact Lens

Terry, some of us our journalists. We're being anonymous because we may work alongside you someday and not want you to take this the wrong way.

I'm the guy who has logged on during both threads and talked about how I liked your work, so take it easy.

Bottom line, though, is you took a message board rumor created by a kid who isn't old enough to buy lottery tickets, and decided that it was enough to put on your blog. The readers who come here every day would hope you would have a better screening process than PistonsTalk.com message board (full of smiley faces and even worse) and a place called hoopsworld.com.

Those were the only two sites that had this made-up "rumor" before you decided to put it on your blog. Don't get pissed off for being rightfully slammed because you made a giant mistake. Either delete the posts or ignore the whole thing. You can't have it both ways.

I'm sure Terry is looking forward to working alongside you so that you can anonymously stab him in the back. Some journalist you are "Mr./Ms. Anonymous...you won't even put your name behind your statements. Ha Ha...hoping he won't "take it wrong"! How is he supposed to take your sniping. Grow up. It was a rumor and was reported as such.

Anonymous Anonymous said...

Re: "our," yeah, that was pretty bad. REALLY bad. I saw it as soon as I re-read but it turns out there isn't an edit function when you go anon.

I'm not stabbing Terry anywhere, much less his back. Those of us who deal with these "rumors" on a daily basis know better than to even give things like this a passing thought. And anyone who is dealing with any NBA team would know better -- and at least know how the NBA cap system works. That's on Terry.

If he wants to troll around message boards looking for things to fill his blog with, that's his problem. He's lost the respect of this fellow NBA scribe, and I'm sure more than a few of his other peers.

The blitherings of a 16-year old only stay a "rumor" after you do a half-minute worth of research and look up salaries -- much less call an actual source. Terry didn't bother to do either.

Make fun of my hideous "are/our" misstep or my anon identity all you want -- how does it feel to be a fan of a writer who gets his information from "Lionsboi6969" or "R_Wings4eva98" ?

You're insane. He never reported it as news...he said it was a rumor and asked for our opinion on said rumor. Or should I say "are" opinion?

I'm sure people around the world have lost respect for a guy that has been doing this for 20 years because he said "what do you think of this rumor?" on his personal blog.

Be a man and tell us who you are...where you work...anything. I double-dog dare you.

It's being rumored that you're a huge douche. No, I can probably verify that by reading a few more of your whining, adolescent posts, but for now I'm just stating the rumor.

"Getting his facts"? What facts?

He said "here's a rumor, what do you think of it?" Maybe you oughta take up reading after you learn the "our/are" differences. He never reported anything. And he sure never implied anything he said was based on "fact".

Again...I DARE you to tell us who you are, big shot. Probably some dude Foster hung up on during the Inferno looking to get revenge.

Terry, your the man. 1... for Joe D to disurupt the starting 5 is just insane in my opinion. Yes, Sheed screwed up on the double team in the Finals... no reason to hang the guy. I feel he brings a lot to this team. In my eyes, which many may not agree with me, him and Ben are the captions of this team. Sheed has the years put into the NBA. He helped us to 1 NBA and helped lead us to almost a 2nd. Trading him is just retarted in my opinion. Without him, we woulda never won the finals.. an with out him we wouldn't have made it to the finals, and this year without him... as much as you all say he's "inconsistant" we will not win or be int he finals without him. Period... Thats my opinion.. Take that home and chew on it... it's delicious

For the whiner that insists on the trade not being workable due to salary issues. Where is "your" research? Didn't do any, no... I didn't think so.

Nocioni is under contract for $2,777,500 this year.
Chandler has yet to sign, but is expected to do so for around $9,000,000 per
That adds up to $11,777,500

Rasheed is due $10,260,000

With numbers like these the trade would be allowed under the CBA

You said it was a rumor, but then you said your NBA source says it is NOT a rumor, that the trade hasn't even been discussed by the two teams.

Hoopsworld.com (actually more well-known as 'Poopsworld' for obvious reasons) is not a source that anyone with any credibility would be quoting. Not even a blogger who cares about what people think would dare make themselves look bad by going with a Poopsworld fabrication.

That's the only problem I have with what you reported- most rumors turn out to be either not true or they were true but the trade didn't happen (for example, Dumars and Paxson could have discussed the deal but decided against doing it).

But Poopsworld? At least now, you know better.

Watch subject. Bush and the Republicans were not protecting us on 9-11, and we aren't a lot safer now. We may be more afraid due to george bush, but are we safer? Being fearful does not necessarily make one safer. Fear can cause people to hide and cower. What do you think? Why has bush turned our country from a country of hope and prosperity to a country of belligerence and fear.
Our country is in debt until forever, we don't have jobs, and we live in fear. We have invaded a country and been responsible for thousands of deaths.
We have lost friends and influenced no one. No wonder most of the world thinks we suck. Thanks to what george bush has done to our country during the past three years, we do!

Bush is forever saying that democracies do not invade other countries and start wars. Well, he did just that. He invaded Iraq, started a war, and killed people. What do you think? How does that work in a democracy again? How does being more threatening make us more likeable?Isn't the country with
the most weapons the biggest threat to the rest of the world? When one country is the biggest threat to the rest of the world, isn't that likely to be the most hated country?
Are we safer today than we were before?
