The Postgame Presser With Steph Curry And Draymond Green Is a Shining Example Of Why Athletes Hate The Media
Steph Curry is making his first conference finals appearance and even that couldn't lighten his mood enough to not tell the reporter that he asks idiotic questions. This is what's wrong with the media. Not that they have a job to do, but that they suck at doing it. Not that they have questions, but that they always have the wrong questions. Can we get somebody in there that knows what it means to be a professional athlete or is in some way familiar with the game of basketball? Did you just ask the best player on the best team, record wise, in the sport if there is a team he would like to stay away from? What kind of answer did you expect from that? You just watched 2 and half hours of basketball and that was the most stimulating thought that was formulated between those ears? Maybe, just maybe, it would serve you better to ask a question that you have a semblance of a chance of getting an answer to. Bet you Steph Curry finding the nice way of saying "you ask dumb fucking questions" is going to look great in your column. Nothing sparks readership like reading a whole shit load of nothing.
You want to know how easy it is to be a beat reporter? Draymond Green was the best one in the room and he probably hasn't written anything since high school. Did you know the key to yesterday's win was Festus Ezeli before right now? I know I didn't. I watched the game and I didn't even know he was a basketball player, never mind a cog in clinching a series win. I thought it was some kind of disease that was hampering Marc Gasol. Hey, journalists in the room, take notes. Draymond Green just gave you a little something called insight. Look it up. I'm sure the quickest way to find it would be by looking under your job description, but what do I know? Better watch your back. Keep letting athletes ask their own questions and there is going to be a lot of unemployed media members. Lord knows the general public would rather hear Draymond Green's expertise on the sport he plays than a bunch of clique questions worthy of cliche answers, if they are even worthy of an answer at all.
The look says it all...
