Jesus. That is about as it gets.
Chad Ford is ESPN's basketball version of MKJ. He's a draftnik. As far as trades and free agency and the general day to day operations of NBA teams, he's not very perceptive.
The Shaq trade thing probably came out of this thought process: "Shaq and Amare didn't play well together in Phoenix, so if the Cavs get Amare, it would follow that they'd probably want to trade Shaq. I should write something about that."
Sam Smith thinks along the same lines, just with more soul-rotting anger and bitterness.
