I'm putting this here because I can't add my own blog. ESPN, as well as many other news and sports networks, get off the Lakers!!! It is almost sickening to watch the coverage of this team as if no other team is worthy of being on the court with them. The Bucks lost to the Lakers last night by 6 points, and Michael Redd had a game high 36 points and was 5-8 from 3pt land. However, the way ESPN showed the highlights, one would have suspected that the Lakers won by about 30, and that the Bucks were a privileged team to be playing with the "biggeset group of ego-crazed self-absorbed money-hungry" gentlemen that are the LA Lakers (as quoted by myself). Not one single bucks highlight, a big crap was made about how the Lakers had 5 players in double figures (the Bucks only had 4, they must suck) and Kobe and Shaq are being treated as more than human. Does anyone hate the politics of the NBA as much as I do?
I'm not a fan of the NBA, but I am a huge Bucks fan, and as of now I'm an anti-Lakers fan.

|Yes, the media does have a way with making certain athletes out to be more than human while giving other, better athletes no props at all.|

Just to argue from the other side of the coin, to mix metaphors...
Maybe michael redd and co. should win 3 championships and have 3.5 hall of famers on the team.

|That's kinda my point, but I get what you are saying. Why should you have to have a team full of hall of famers to get respect though? It's not just the Bucks, but that's what I know best. It's just frustrating seeing teams and players like that of the Lakers as the subject of every single sports debate on tv and in the papers. Can't we talk about something else that people on this side of the country care about?|

|At least Hunter won.|
|But yes he did get robbed... I personally think they should add a few more mariners to the list... 4 wasn't quite enough... I was thinking more like 9... wait a second did seattle make the playoffs... oh yeah they didn't... nevermind then.|
|Scott - On your mark...get set...Terrible!|
|Scott Podsednik got robbed, or at least he did in my slightly biased opinion. I guess you have to be on a good team to qualify. Andruw Jones didn't deserve it, but then I guess when you have 5 they give you the 6th one without even voting or something.|
