Shane Battier found out about trade through twitter

Posted by slammo in Grizzlies, News, Rockets

Shane Battier is a standup guy, great lockdown defender, and decent 3point shooter. Oh and he’s a big basketball nerd who studies and analyzes his opponents’ moves. Sports Radio Interviews transcribed this interview he had in Memphis earlier this week.

“I actually found out through Twitter feeds online. Honestly, I was on one of the websites and just kept refreshing. … As of 1:45 nothing had happened and I was like, ‘All right, I’m going to finish the year in Houston.’ I hit refresh at 1:55 and it said, ‘Sources say Battier to Memphis.’ I was like, ‘I better start packing.’”

Man, twitter is fuckin up the game. It’s sad to think Battier was waiting and staring at the computer screen to find out about his future. It’s even sadder knowing he’ll be away from his pregnant wife. He was going to be traded regardless but it would’ve been nice for him to land with a good team. He would’ve been perfect for Boston.
