Photo: Kevin Durant Rocks a Chicago Bulls Hat & Proves Point About Media & Fan Bias

Often in sports I talk about “Media Protection”. In its simplest form some players are protected while others are blasted over the smallest things.

It is the reason a “complimentary” tweet causing bitter jealous ex NFL players to go off on Chad OchoCinco and a DUI by Hines Ward is ignored completely.

It is why they continue to bring up Michael Vick’s dogfighting, but never speaks on Bathroom Ben strong arming women.

If there is any player in the NBA that has “Media Protection” it is Kevin Durant. Him wearing a Chicago Bulls hat doesn’t mean anything at all. It is a non story, but………………….

What if Lebron James was wearing a Knicks hat?

It would be all over Sportscenter, 100s of blogs, Skip Bayless would be slamming tables and Spike Lee would be making a documentary.

Two players, two different media perceptions and two different fan reactions. So next time something happens with Lebron or Ocho Cinco, just think to yourself how would you react if the same thing happened to Kevin Durant or Hines Ward.

If it isn’t than same, you are part of the problem.

  1. The funny thing is neither LBJ or OC have done anything illegal in their lives. Isn’t Manning a hardcore republican? Weren’t repubs supposed to be against stem Cell.

  2. I know this if off topic but I’m looking into starting my own blog and was wondering what all is needed to get setup? I’m assuming having a blog like yours would cost a pretty penny? I’m not very internet savvy so I’m not 100% certain. Any suggestions or advice would be greatly appreciated. Thank you
