[b]look at how all of them (with very few exceptions) are trying to read between the lines of every statement from the organization or the coach and even of KD's IG post. look at how all of them are trying to dissect every single word including even the tone of voice used to pronounce those words.[/b] I mean, seriously? the tone of voice?! and this is now that the injury occured and KD is definitely out. the weeks before the injury the level of conversation and takes on tv, newspapers and social media was even worse. out of a sudden, every sport analysts, every commentator, every twitter account holder turned into a doctor with a degree from Harvard or a psycologist with a master from stanford....simply ridiculous.
media are disgusting. they are power-hungry bottom feeders of the worst breed. they have no ethics, no integrity and, more importantly, no connection with reality. most of the time they speculate without even doublecheck a piece of information just for the sake of speculating. I have no respect for them. they're literally full of ****.
This is part of a reporter's job. Granted, some media members are more responsible and ethical than others but, let's face it, part of the entertainment value of the league is giving fans access to the off-court drama. It's that way by design and one of the reasons the league is so popular these days.
