Internet Rumors Anger Kevin Martin

Yep, Kevin Martin is mad at the internet. At least, that's what Jonathan Feigen is saying after Wednesday's pre-All-Star finale, with Martin angry that he's been reportedly angry about not being traded already.

Did you follow that?

We'll see more of this between now and March 15, and since Martin didn't immediately jump out in support of the team when he was almost traded to New Orleans, it's led to more and more speculation that he's unhappy.

Except the speculation is coming from "league sources" and not Rockets sources. Have you seen anything from Feigen or anyone else covering the Rockets day to day? No, it's all from national writers who are trying to pull together trade rumors.

↵

That's the problem that crops up for both basketball and baseball at this time of year. National writers rely on sources from all across the league that may or may not know what's going on. You can definitely understand why he's feeling upset and needed to dispute the report.

↵

Of course, there's always a chance that Martin is secretly seething, it's been affecting his play all year but he doesn't want it playing out in the media. Let's put the odds on that at about 15 percent, with 85 percent chance that league sources just things wrong in this instance.
