Sherm... hush. Just hush. Really.
I'm with Rocket here. If you're going to open your big mouth you'd better have some backup other than "I was misquoted". That truly sucks and sounds like the same story he told about drugs.
This drug deal, if he wants to say it seems to him half the league is using alderal fine. But to state it as fact, better have proof.
Make comments about other players, if you're in danger of being misquoted then make comments that aren't "iffy" and whine about it later.
He can say anything he wants but should understand lots of people won't take his word for it and he needs to be sure of his facts and the backup for them.
A player like him can't make outragous statements and then come with with "Oh the devil made me do that" as an excuse cause that just sounds like backtracking attempts.
I disagree completely. I think the onus is on the journalist to have some integrity and print the comments in context. He was answering a question and the interviewer brought up players who have prescriptions for Adderall and Sherman said "Yeah, about half the league uses it". I'm not seeing how this is Sherman trying to out anyone. This is just more garbage journalism for shock value and it's a despicable practice by people who know better.
