09:16 AM ET 01.05 | Clippers Coach Doc Rivers said an ESPN report about Los Angeles having a discussion about trading Blake Griffin to the New York Knicks for Carmelo Anthony was "so stupid." Rivers clearly was upset about the report and about being asked about the so-called trade talks by reporters before the Clippers played the San Antonio Spurs on Saturday night. Rivers said the Clippers aren't engaged in talks to trade Griffin for Anthony and aren't going to trade their All-Star power forward. "My whole issue with any of that ... is that that network to me reports a story that they created and then they do reports on it for the next two days, on a story that they created," Rivers said. "But it's stupid."

Good job calling out the media for this Doc.

Unfortunately some people are gullible and believe everything they read anyway.

What's he going to say: I'm Doc Rivers and I approve this trade... ?

He's also wanted to trade for Garnett.

Doc may be right, but he has bigger things to worry with Paul down. Their offense looked terrible last night. Collison looked completely lost.

I didn't see this trade picking up traction for a multitude of reasons. That being said, it isn't an awful trade for either team. Knicks get star power to replace a melo who's already got one foot out the door. And the clippers get some serious scoring on the wing now and a clutch shooter. It won't happen though, but it isn't the worst trade I've ever heard proposed

He is a known liar and also the GM. He has ways to make himself look good especially if it the trade didn't go through. He has to massage Blake's ego so that he can continue to play good...
