It isn't sarcasm. That line was directed at BB in a previous post, not you. I want to know if the rumor was purposely put on the front page simply to generate traffic. I spent the greater part my morning searching for information, and I was unable to find anything. Then at noon, Chad Ford comes on ESPNNEWS and says the Miami Heat are going to take Michael Beasley because they didn't like any of the deals presented to them. I understand it's my fault for getting excited at something that says rumor, but I would expect that this rumor would have some credibility and a reputable source. ESPN radio doesn't do it for me. And if JSM has some information that I don't, then I apologize to him if he takes offense to this post.
First off, it says "RUMOR" in giant letters on the front page image.
Secondly, when you click on it, it clearly states in the first 2 words that it's from ESPN Radio as the source of this alleged "rumor":
ESPN radio reported that the Lakers and Heat are in talks...
So I'm not really sure where the source of your being offended is coming from. Whoever posted that graphic to generate interest was completely up front and truthful about where it came from and that it was just a rumor (thus meaning it wasn't official and is unlikely). If "ESPN Radio doesn't do it for you" then by all means please navigate away from the page after you read the first 2 words of that report to save yourself the aggravation.
