And the hits just keep coming with this story. One second Camby is coming to the Blazers, the next he might not be and now he’s not even happy about it. Seriously, this is unraveling quicker than Snooki after a few shots. Marc J. Spears of Yahoo Sports is reporting that Marcus Camby is upset about the trade to the Blazers. No joke…this is crazy. I almost feel guilty but here are the words from the man himself:
In town in advance of their Tuesday game against the Trail Blazers, the Clippers were having a team dinner at Portland’s Ringside steakhouse Monday night when Camby received a call on his cell phone from Blazers general manager Kevin Pritchard. Pritchard informed Camby that he will likely be traded to Portland once the league finalizes the deal on Tuesday.
After taking the call, Camby immediately walked out of the restaurant. A source close to him says he is “very upset” about the trade. He had hoped to re-sign with the Clippers this summer.
Just to use another Jersey Shore reference…looks like we got a situation. Did Hedo text him or something? Now the whole deal takes on a different spin. I mean I loved the deal because I thought Camby would want to leave the Clippers and get to a contender, but it looks like that may not be so. Reason why I didn’t want Tyrus Thomas? Attitude. Not sure I want Camby’s attitude either. As the world turns..
