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.

Everybody gets traded!

“You’re getting traded! You’re getting traded! You’re getting traded!” -Oprah

One of the craziest trade deadline just ended. Mike Bibby thought he was going to play in the playoffs, he got sent to Washington and will never know how victory feels again. Baron Davis thought he’d be throwing alley-oops to Blake Griffin, Donald Sterling banished him to the worst team in the league for Mo Williams and Jamario Moon. Houston gave up Shane Battier for a scrub Hasheem Thabeet. Houston’s Aaron Brooks switched places with Phoenix’s Goran Dragic. Blazers gave up their only backup center, two no names, two first round draft picks and cash for Gerald Wallace.

Boston wins for the most random and unnecessary trades. Kendrick Perkins and Nate Robinson got sent to Oklahoma for Jeff Green, Nenad Krstic and 2012 first round pick. Marquis Daniels got sent to Sacramento for cash and second round pick. Both rookies Semih Erden and Luke Harangody got sent to Cleveland for second round pick. Rumor has it they want to free up space to sign Troy Murphy after he gets bought out by Golden State. Congratulations Boston, you now have no front court depth and no longer pose a threat as a great defensive team. If Murphy becomes a Celtic, that will make three new players who can’t defend. The O’Neals are done, they don’t count. All this because they needed a swingman to backup for Pierce and Danny Ainge expected Perkins to walk when he’s a free agent after refusing to sign an extension. And Jeff Green will most likely be a rental just for this season.

Oklahoma is the clear winner in this year’s trade deadline and became a championship contender over night. They add much needed front court depth with Perkins and Nazr Mohammed. Letting Jeff Green go was great for them because they wouldn’t pay him what he wanted, they’re giving that money to Russell Westbrook. I feel sorry for Seattle fans. They got robbed of a future Western Conference Champions and possible dynasty.
