They just reference the same story that started the other thread on here, lol. And remember, it's not just Bonnell. Steve Martin said he'd be surprised if Lance ended up here. National media just throws out everything their brother's mother's cousin's uncle tells them and places it as "Sources say..."

Steve Martin is an old, alcoholic radio broadcaster. I'll go to the shelter and ask a blind cat awaiting to be euthanized his opinion on the Stephenson sweepstakes before I take anything Martin says seriously.

As for Bonnell, he is just speculating. He hasn't once refuted Stephenson citing team sources. He's just giving his negative opinion, and probably wish.

Unless they're lying, correct.

Bonnell hasn't once cited any sources. SN cited sources.

Me personally.... I get the feeling that bonnell has zero sources and that he only gets trickle down info. He just tells his opinion or what he thinks should happen. Which is a big no no when it's your job to cover the team not promote your wants. That's why he was so mad when Higgins left. That was his main source of info.

He knows next to nothing. Would be nice to have a decent beat reporter.

Yeah "sources"

Everyone bashes Chris Broussard for his "sources" yet everyone believes Sporting News "sources." Heck you even bashed Stephen A. and his sources yet you're willing to believe Sporting News? Sounds to me like you are picking and choosing what to believe.

Not to mention, when is the last time Sporting News broke any big time news.

This seems like a bunch of optimism to me.

Until I see something from Woj or Spears, I'm not buying it.

Could be, but if this was a story then Woj would have gotten a hold of hit by now.

Oh I agree. When u hear WOJ say it, it's a done deal and he hasn't mentioned anything about lance. But I'm just saying I would trust almost anyone over bonnell.

LOL, just saying "according to a source" doesn't make it a legitimate source.  Every national writer out there has a "source" and many of them have proven to be wrong this offseason.  This SN article is the only one I've seen in several days that says the Hornets are on the verge of making Lance Stephenson an offer.  Nothing from Woj, or the ESPN guys, or the local guys, or anybody else.  So I'm not sure how this guy and his "source" are automatically right and everybody else doesn't know what they're talking about.

At this point 'sources' are pure speculation. He's a virus but a hero if he gets us top 4. I just have no idea how this might play.
