The bad fortunes of athletic teams can divide more than fan bases.

Lachlan McLean, the WHAS Radio sports talkshow host who earns a paycheck by irritating his listeners, appears to have ticked off a fellow broadcaster. Turns out that even Lachlan McLean has a blog. Who knew?

In a recent posting, McLean created an elaborate chart purporting to show that Kyle Kuric had not improved during four seasons with the University of Louisville basketball team. What McLean is attempting to really prove with his ”productivity by minute” chart is unclear, but the numbers indicate that Kuric’s numbers have been fairly consistent over his career.

What’s even more certain is that McLean’s approach is a backhanded shot at Rick Pitino’s ability to develop his players.

Drew Deener, the host of The Early Birds on WKRD, takes McLean to task on his WKRD blog, applying McLean’s analytical technique to the career of Michael Jordan, which indicate that Jordan’s stats remains fairly consistent over 14 seasons in the NBA.

Deener concludes:

“Clearly with Lachlan’s show getting pre-empted almost every night, he’s got a lot of time on his hands.  So much so, that he’s come up with the worst fu$&@$$# theory of all time …

“Sounds ridiculous…not to Lachlan McLean…because, as he told us, the only true way to measure a player is productivity per minute.  We know Kyle was on pace to become a 100 percent free throw shooter his Freshman year (2 for 2…colored in red on Lachlan’s freaking pie chart or whatever the hell that is), until Pitino clearly messed that up.

“Bite me Lachlan, now I know why everyone hates you.”

That should make McLean’s day, having added a fellow broadcaster to his list of haters.
