There is another writer that I donít correspond with, or talk to, that has taken upon himself to write what he thinks Iím thinking. The new moron in town is Chad Ford of ESPN.com

To think that ESPN let David Aldridge go for this. David Aldridge checked his facts. David Aldridge would email me in the middle of the night asking one last time if he had his facts correct, or if it was something that couldnít be commented on, to let you know what he was going with to make sure he got it right.

I remember one time David and I got into a disagreement about what fans thought about the game, its players and costs. I told him that I thought fans loved the game, and all he had to do was talk to them to find out. He did. He went and sat in the stands and talked to the customers of the NBA and asked them what they thought. When they told him they thought the game was fun and affordable, he wrote just that ó with quotes from the fans.

So instead of an Aldridge, a reporter with great relationships around the NBA and access to information, they go with a guy, who at least in my case, doesnít take the time to email me and ask. Itís not like he canít find my email.

Didn't really notice until now... Shocked Although I haven't been seeing him on NBA Nation's Put up or Shut up lately... Confused But yeah, Ford gets a lot of things wrong...

Where have I been? Aldridge was FIRED? I know they fired Jaysen ____ (the guy who used to host NBA 2 Night)...I believe it was for inappropriate office conduct, but David Aldridge was fired???

Unebelieveable!

Yikes, I didn't notice it either. I just can't stand Chad Ford and I don't get to read most of what he writes because it's all available only for insider subscriptions anyway. I liked David and I like Ric Bucher, even tho I hate his devotion to Kobe, the rest I just don't read (Marc Stein, for instance).
