The Golden State Warriors knocked off the New Orleans Hornets last night to improve to 17-8 on the year in case you didn’t hear from the media outlets last night. (That wonderful Lakers win against the Bobcats needed to be talked about so much… Chumps.) After going 6-1 on an east coast swing (knocking off the likings of BK and Miami), the Warriors came back to Oakland to win and stay a game and a half back from the only LA team that should be reported about.
I get the fact that the Lakers are a better team to cover with everything that is going wrong, but coverage needs to shift to covering teams that are winning. When I turn on ESPN and go to the website, the 12-14 Lakers are headlining. Sports addicts, I beg of you to demand excellence in your reporting. If the big shows want to talk about LA and New York that’s fine, but talk about the teams that are winning. It’s a joke that “highlight of the night” is an under .500 team when there is so much more to report.
