And the quote about Paul Pierce went a little something like this:

"By the way, Pierce's idea of a fun night is going clubbing and getting stabbed. Good times!"



And this was a comment I posted on the article:



I have no words to describe this article, but if I did, they would go something like this: 

You are a great writer and have a tremendous vocabulary. However as of yesterday, you have no more credibility whatsoever. This article crossed a line on so many levels. It was disgusting, disrespectful, inappropriate, and the comment on Paul Pierce might be one of the most immature, childish things I've heard in my life. For you own sake, I hope you have already apologized to the people of Boston as well as your editor for this joke of a piece.


I hope you understand furthermore that if you choose to delete this comment, you are only hiding from the humiliation you deserve. Moreover, when writing an article, please at least get your facts straight. The Lakers average one foul less per game than the Celtics do, and Dwight was elbowing everybody throughout the series, including Garnett. All he did was attempt to get Howard off of him. I'm sure by now you have read the piece responding to your article. If not, please do.

Just to update you in the world that we are all living in, the Lakers are just as scummy, if not more than you portray the Celtics to be. Kobe Bryant-Colorado anyone? Ron Artest-Palace at Auburn Hills, and a poor man's combination of Dennis Rodman and Rasheed Wallace, Lamar Odom-Married to one of the biggest you know whats in the book, after only how many weeks of knowing her? One, two?, Vujacic-I hope you have watched his entire career because you would know how cheap of a player he always has been, especially his play on his fellow countryman Dragic the other night, Morrison-Biggest cry baby of them all after his loss in the NCAA tournament his senior year, should I keep going? Gasol-His elbows move faster than your upcoming job search.  I could go on all day. I'm shocked you didn't make a Len Bias or Reggie Lewis reference. I hope you're all caught up.

Next time, for your sake and everyone outside of LA's sake, please think before you write. Also, LA residents should be thanking you for making their paper go from a top sports news source to one of the most laughable. Good luck with your future, wait what am I saying. 

Get back to me when Lamar Odom gets a divorce.

Sorry if I offended you.
