Kevin Durant Wears Chicago Bulls Hat, Proves Point About Media and Fan Bias
Of course not. Kevin Durant wore a Bulls hat, proving that both media and fans are bias towards different players. For example, T.O. wearing the Michael Irvin throwback to Eagles camp, or Chris Paul in a New York New Era fitted.
BlacksportsOnline posed great points when pointing out the bias in both media and fans:
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.
Funny. Also goes to show that Kevin Durant clearly is a player with “Media Protection”. Can’t so the same thing for other players such as Lebron and Ocho Cinco. Crazy thing is, neither players have records for doing anything illegal, then again you don’t ever hear about Big Ben’s situation brought up during games nor do you hear of Favre’s little peter mentioned. *shrugs
