1) Tim Kawakami, Pessimist at Law... hates Warriors, 49ers, Giants, Baron Davis, Chris Mullin, Don Nelson, Barry Bonds, Alex Smith, Mike Nolan, and pretty much any other guy who has anything to do with Bay Area sports. Imagine a hardcore Los Angeles writer being forced to write about Bay Area sports after being a Laker/Rams/Dodgers fan his entire life and you've got your basic run-of-the-mill Kawakami article.
2) John Hollinger (and his BS stats). Nothing more needs to be said. When you need to make up numbers to try and prove your case, you're an idiot.
3) Chad Ford. This guy will tell a whole paragraph of honest, truthful, journalistic reporting... and then completely make up the last line to 'spice things up a bit'. Take his preview article on the NBA Draft (specifically, his comments on the prospect of Golden State taking Patrick O'Bryant). Observe:
Chad Ford wrote:They've got Andris Biedrins and Ike Diogu; another frontcourt project is overkill. Baron Davis wants out; a PG is more urgent.
Is it me... or did Chad Ford just COMPLETELY make up a totally uncited and unheard of controversial claim? BD wants out??? I knew he didn't like Montgomery, but this was honestly the first time I'd ever heard any notion of Davis wanting a trade. It made me scratch my head. And people outside of the Bay Area who don't follow GS might actually buy this crap. Congradulations, Chad Ford. You're making the world stupider.
