There have been a lot of ridiculous stories during this lockout. JaVale McGee denying a quote given to reporters with a half dozen recording devices in his face is a personal favorite. There’s Ken Berger’s 50/50 cake. We’ve had “enormous consequences,” 3 a.m. press conferences, and of course, “How u?.” 

Tuesday night saw some pretty freaking ridiculous stories. 

It started with a column from FoxSports.com’s Jason Whitlock,  who has written literally hundreds dozens four posts on the NBA lockout, asserting that Derek Fisher wanted to go 50/50 and Billy Hunter wouldn’t let him. The piece pretty much painted Fisher as a sellout over his head. Point!
