A reporter for the Orange County Register, Kevin Ding, has accused ESPN broadcaster Will Selva of stealing several phrases from his newspaper column, SportsNewser.com reports.
Ding joked about the incident on his blog, saying it wasn’t his best lead-in column for a big game. The story was a preview of the clash between NBA Western Conference rivals the L.A. Lakers and San Antonio Spurs.
However, Ding didn’t let Selva off the hook. He said of his so-so writing that Selva could have done better stealing from another column.
He ended his blog, “Sorry about that, Will.”
