ARE YOU LISTENING ESPN?I’m for truth, no matter who tells it. I’m for justice, no matter who it is for or against. I’m a human being, first and foremost, and as such I’m for whoever and whatever benefits humanity as a whole. — Malcolm X
OAKLAND, CA. (BASN)—Apparently the 4 letter word network got the message, maybe they were listening to BASN because this past week there was significant change in their reporting. The Sports Network changed it’s tone, the character assassinations ceased. The political, racial, and social spin stopped. The Network started talking about basketball the way it is suppose to be played with X’s and O’s, no nonsense.
The sports network started explaining what James and Wade needed to do on the floor to assist their team win. They made it clear to the viewer how the big three (Wade, Bosh, and James) have finally come together as a team.
They told viewers about the Heat offense against the Thunder defense and what needed to be changed. How Russell Westbrook’s deep penetrating drives to the basket changed the Heat defense. How LeBron James posting up gives the Thunder front line trouble. Creating problems for the Oklahoma City defense with fourth quarter fouls. This is what basketball fans want.
Likewise, the network did an in-depth investigation on how the Oklahoma City Thunder could beat the Miami Heat with their two big stars Durant and Westbrook. No spin doctors here, just fact and opinions. The way it’s supposed to be.
Explaining to viewers which team had the better bench and which coach changed their philosophies in the middle of a contest to win the game. Fans don’t care about the 4 letter word networks political affiliation, gender, or race.
As Brother Malcolm stated many times give me the facts.
The 4 letter word network started discussing which player on the bench that could change the series in the Heat or Thunder’s favor and which player hurt their respective teams.
Next question why can’t this network maintain this kind of professionalism at all times? It sounds better, it looks better, and it cannot be attacked for slanting the information.
Maybe the Miami Heat winning three games out of four games could have change their minds.
Enjoy it while you can folks because this sports network will return to its hole in the wall to eat the cheese on the floor becoming “The Mouse”, again and when this network eat their oatmeal it will become “The Rat;” returning to their old status quo of reporting slander, slamming prominande African American athletes whenever the 4 letter word network sees fit.
It was peaceful on Saturday, Sunday, Monday, and then on Tuesday it went back to business as usual.
Like the e-trade commercial, WE ARE WATCHING YOU !!!!
