Look At All These Rumors, Surrounding Me Everyday - June 6, 2012
Sam Amick of CNNSI says there's buzz that the Wizards are leaning towards Thomas Robinson. Chad Ford of ESPN says, "The Wizards like where they are in the draft. They've been debating between Kidd-Gilchrist and Beal for months. If one of them is off the board, they'll be happy with the other." What I'm getting at is this time of year, EVERYONE has "unnamed sources" and "people in the know", which is why I don't put much stock into all of the rumors. Seems like national media nowadays tend to throw any story, even unconfirmed and unsubstantiated ones, out there, under the premise that one of them will stick to the wall eventually. It's not about being right as much as it's about being first. So when I hear this writer's source say a team is going to do this, and another writer's source say something that totally contradicts that, I just laugh. It's almost as if the national writers and columnist aren't much different than us common folk that give our opinions on forums or Bleacher Report, or those idiots that think people read their stupid little blog entries (thanks for reading, by the way). Anyway, just be careful what you read and to whom you believe.
