“That one was something I probably should apologize for. That one was not only too close to the line, but maybe over,” Green said on Boston radio station WEEI’s Planet Mikey Show. “The truth is I think Paul Pierce is a very, very good player. A Hall of Fame caliber player. I probably shouldn’t have gone to the stabbing card.”
The LA Times retracted the line from Green’s story, but the line is still there on a KTLA cross-post of the piece. KTLA, remember, is where Green has his day job.
Methinks Green might not exactly have been sincere in his on-air apology.
