    I've seen writers "borrow" before, but I don't rememer anything that blatant. You really should insist on attribution, LJ. Not to punish the guy who claimed credit, but for your own reputation as an analyst and writer.

    Well let's face it, if you're looking for quality Spurs related content on the internet, you won't find no better. In fact, you'll be hard pressed to find close to as good. This isn't just run of the mill fluff, this is actual in depth commentary and detailed analysis.

    That's what pisses me off more. People are actually paying for this kind of information at ESPN and they're getting blatant plagiarism.

    For sure... if someone doesn't want to watch the spurs that is fine... but ffs... if you are going to have to write about them... don't steal the work of someone who does... and knows them inside out.. give them credit...

    I would be getting a huge kick out of an ex-NBA coach stealing my stuff though... hah

    Exactly. Essentially wins the case because the material is considered provided from an informers pov. The bas can't claim his info was "common knowledge."

    This would make a solid Deadspin article with the love they have for ESPN and all...
    Done. Already reported.

    Can you really accuse someone of plagiarism if the sentences and words aren't exactly the same ?

    I'm just wondering... if Carroll thought this through..

    Creditability is what Carroll should be more concerned with.

    The fact that it requires Insider access is pretty lame, tbh. I didn't realize that at first.

    timvp probably won't have many legal options but he can definitely get carroll fired.

    ESPN, making you constantly wonder how such clowns keep their jobs in this economy since 1942.

    Says he went to school at inson College:

    Maybe he needs his degree rescinded.

    Idk. I was always taught that even if you're explaining something in your own words you're still supposed to list a source either in text or as a reference at the end.

    Ex. In his article "XYZ" (date of publication, required info, etc.), AuthorName put forward...

    Although since it looks like the entire article is basically summarizing Timvp's thread, I'm not even sure if that would salvage this particular situation tbh.

    I'm thinking he should've quoted Timvp, done a little work on Synergy, and then given some commentary from there? As long as he's honest about not really watching the Spurs and is clearly explaining that his predictions are based on the stats that could've been a decent read still imo.
