Yesterday, the NY Daily News reported that the Knicks, Blazers and Clippers were working on a three team trade that would send Marcus Camby and Channing Frye to NY, David Lee to Portland, and Quenten Richardson back to LA for his second tour of duty.
We here at Clipsnation immediately called BS on the rumor. I mean, why on earth would the Clips send the absolute best player away, and in return take the least productive player involved in the deal? (I mean, it is the Clippers, but they wouldn't be that dumb, right?)
Today, the Daily News cross-town rival, the NY Post reports that the story was indeed crap, and that the reporter learned of the rumor from " a posted comment on a Knick blog by a person claiming to have ties with the Clippers."
Kidding me? Not just a blog, but the comments section of a blog. This is a serious case of journalistic malpractice. The Post sure thinks it's funny.
