Was Larry's comment about Wells a joke or did hit maybe have some truth to it?

Probably both.

There's always some truth to any ribbing. I think Bird's ribbing was good-natured as opposed to mean-spirited.

Are you kidding, it was clearly a joke.

If Bird wants something leaked, he'll get it leaked. Even a bad reporter (not saying Wells is) wont stop that from happening. I think it was just a joke.

What Bird said?

Bird was saying how trade talks were heating up and that the Pacers were talking to quite a few teams. Then he said maybe you guys would know this if Wells did his job better. It was clearly a joke to me.

What Bird said?

Someone asked him about trades since there hadn't been any rumors, and Bird said something along the lines of "There's been talk, you guys would know that if Wells was doing his job."

Friendly little joke IMO, not much more to it.

Yes, Wells should definitely be doing a better job getting PS&E employees fired. He's no Pete Vecsey.

I'm more curious as to whether this thread is serious or a joke than Bird's comment. He was clearly joking.

Bird also took a shot at Wells during the Darren Collison trade presser. Wells raised his hand for his first question and Bird acknowledged him, but anticipated the question. Bird said something like "How does this affect TJ?", as if that was the first question he expected Wells to ask. I suspect there IS a little annoyance with Wells though in both cases Bird was joking.

I can't imagine that someone like Bird could have much respect for a hack like Wells.

Bird pokes fun at Wells or someone in the media at every press conference. It's like a running joke.

Wells is no hack.

He has served the community well. Exhibit A: today's news.

He made me happy today he asked some of the questions I wanted answered.

Shame on him for reporting what he feels needs to be written and not the sunshine and lollipops you believe he should write about. What a hack.

Straight from Wells' Twitter:
@andypaul06 @skuepper bird routinely likes to mess with me during pressers. He's been doing it for years.
