almost feels like Kyrie wants to be on the Lebron level when it comes to speaking on topics outside of basketball but he’s just not there yet.

He’s like the Kanye of the NBA.

TBH the fact that you're even a mod here fits squarely within Jag's narrative of OK-sanctioned aggression, bullying, and toxicity. *shrug*

the context in why he's being told to "shut up" is obviously different (Chuck even adds that if he wants to talk about social issues to go ahead and do so) but this still gives off "shut up and dribble" vibes when Chuck uses phrases like "you're just a basketball player."

Didn't Chuck have an entire TV show about racism in America? Where he excused cop violence and sat down with Richard Spencer? lmao, I mean, cmon. Talking about "you're just a basketball player" to Kyrie after that.

I also don't mind Kyrie eschewing the media at *all.* I think the media's stubborn insistence that media availability is one of the most important things about being a basketball player is completely wrongheaded. I couldn't give less of a shit about what athletes say to the press. 95% of the time, it's just canned answers anyway. Yeah, Kyrie absolutely says galaxy brain shit, lol-- but if he can be the best player on the floor, and he's avoiding being overtly problematic, then I don't really care.

As long as he doesn't begin an IG Live with "let's talk about vaccines for a minute," then he can philosophize all he wants, lmao. I'll still be a fan.

Kyrie apologia aside (come on if he were not a Dukie you would be dragging his ass), let's get into the eschewing the media stuff.

Player to public communication is still done primarily through the news media despite the emergence of Twitter, the Players' Tribune, etc. "Canned answers" are the norm, but not the absolute. Now, what do you think we would get if it were not for media availability? Zero accountability and total control of the narrative by corporate entities, essentially (leagues, franchises, sponsors, players' "brands").

Furthermore, while the hardest hitting stuff is done over time and across different settings, the game coverage is still where relationships are built between reporters and players. Without that, there is no deep dive or heart-wrenching feature down the line, because there is no trust and no building up to the bigger stuff.

Lastly, and I would think this is obvious, is that postgame availability is essential for there to be game coverage at all. The timing is extremely tight and the possible interview subjects are very few. Once a star starts blowing off availability or teams start really narrowing who they put out there, the whole thing falls apart. It's very delicate to begin with and once you have situations where guys who should talk most nights never talk, or the coach starts showing up late or there is just no one to talk to, now there is nothing for the people doing their jobs or the fans pursuing their passion.

And you will know MY JACKET IS GOLD when I lay my vengeance upon thee.

I loved what Marshawn Lynch did at the time too. I don’t defend every stupid ass thing Kyrie says just because he went to Duke, but I do defend Kyrie and any player who’s had an unfavorable relationship with the media if they decide “fuck it, I’m done with this.”

Also, I think it’s *probably* worth pointing out that, while you accuse me of defending Kyrie because I went to Duke, you gave an impassioned defense of access to sports media at least in part because... you are a member of sports media, lol. So of course you’re not going to agree with me that player access to sports media isn’t important— it’s literally your job. I would’ve been stunned if you’d agreed, lol.

And that’s fine. I understand your points— I’m not saying the media doesn’t have value. I’m saying, for sports, the vast majority of the time, it’s not important to me. If a player feels he’s getting misrepresented in media coverage and it’s serving as a distraction from his goal of winning, then I don’t mind that player not talking to the media and letting his game do the talking.

Why? Especially if you actually show up. If you want to blow it off, let someone else go out there and fill the role.

>Also, I think it’s *probably* worth pointing out that, while
>you accuse me of defending Kyrie because I went to Duke, you

>in part because... you are a member of sports media, lol.

Well I guess I didn't infer that you were defending Kyrie in a single context but of course the post doesn't exist in a vaccum either. As far as the second part, oh, you mean I understand how the dynamic functions from the side of the players, press, team and leagues? That's like saying "well of course you want people to wear masks, you're a medical professional." I've worked situations where the head coach was an alcoholic, where the head coach checked out completely, where the star players ducked the media for 90 percent of the season, where guys gave bullshit answers to waste people's time, etc. There is no one voice that's going to torpedo things. The problem is when that becomes pervasive, because the overwhelming majority of actors involved get that the press is a tool for them, not a burden, and that everyone has a job to do around the arena.

So
>of course you’re not going to agree with me that player

We're not talking about the media in general, we are talking about availability and game coverage, which you're totally overlooking and taking for granted. As far as him feeling misrepresented, sorry, he wants it both ways. He wants to be some D-grade Kanye and then whine that he is "misrepresented." If you want to fly under the radar, it is pretty easy.

And you will know MY JACKET IS GOLD when I lay my vengeance upon thee.

" Zero accountability and total control of the narrative by corporate entities, essentially (leagues, franchises, sponsors, players' "brands")."

authorized media sessions managed by credentialed personnel aren't real accountability in sports or even politics.

james harden sat there and lied like a mf in his media session. there's no consequence or real availability or accountability.

if he didn't do it, we'd have the same level of "accountability." I understand media members demanding access, it's their job. as a fan, I give less than zero percent of a shit. nobody reallllllly gets held to the fire because of what they said in a pregame scrum

kyrie doing or not doing those sessions is, from my perspective, an issue with him and his fellow players. because somebody has to talk to the media, it's the deal literally signed. nobody wants to do it, because it sucks, but the agreement is that everyone does it a little.

it's not a moral responsibility to the public, it's one to everyone else in the union

it is absolutely going in the wrong direction and what you pointed out is less a refutation than support of the argument. when you had a much more open system there was much more transparent and natural communication. what we see today is a move toward totally eliminating independent media. right now it is in an interstitial space where independent media has been marginalized but not yet eliminated. so just imagine how whitewashed everything will be once it is.

when was the time of the open system and independent media?

the 90s? the 80s?

because there was no accountability, and it was all access then.

level of interaction was much higher than, and there was a lot of transparency. some things were handled in house, but they were known and handled. today you can barely squeeze in a follow up question during the ephemeral access you do get.

Agreeing with chuck

-The Knicks’ coaching search still includes a lone frontrunner, Kurt Rambis, whose qualifications for the position include a strong relationship with Jackson and a willingness to take the job.

who he knows is uncomfortable with media attention gets targeted for doing something that isn't even basketball related.

I hope Kyrie responds with a video wearing his championship ring. Just petty Charles cornball ass to death.

Kyrie is absolutely an artist on the court

Does anyone else think Kyrie is trolling?

It didn’t occur to me until that IG live where he’s pretending to be KD and they’re negotiating how many post-ups they should get

Thought back to the flat earth comment...and that didn’t even feel sincere TBH

I honestly think ‘Rie and KD are trolling

Chuck contradicts himself with the sentiment of...who cares what this guy thinks...and yet here we are with interviews on what Kyrie thinks

Let’s be real about the media availability stuff

Every player doesn’t do post game interviews

They want the stars

If he doesn’t want to do it, I don’t have a problem with that...but there are ways to use that platform for causes that Kyrie supports

Let Kap be his spokesperson and give him the post game interview time

He could answer every question with...arrest the cops that killed Breonna Taylor

Designate Jared Allen the official Nets spokesperson

Etc...

Chuck’s hot takes got cold in 2020...maybe he should stick to commenting on basketball.

He’s a magician on the court
The footwork
The handles
J is wet
I AM ENTERTAINED!

I couldn’t care less about the off court stuff
He’s hurting no one...but yeah, sure, he could be a complete and total a$$hole

What does that have to do with him as a basketball player?

Did you see the game last night
KD does the post game interview live on air
...and the TNT crew immediately starts clowning him...

Why would they WANT to talk to these guys?

Chuck with the...artist digs throughout the broadcast

Were you calling chuck or ‘Rie an a$$hole?

out there literally endangering the lives of the people around him.

i'm talking about the media, not this board btw.

i remember in the immediate aftermath of the harden/lil baby stuff, stephen a (and others) were on espn saying he did it to "send a signal to houston's front office." like, that's all they said about it. then they went on to trash kyrie for doing goofy harmless stuff.

good to know that people have been calling harden out though.

*been on a news hiatus (sports included) for the last week or so.

dudes recent behavior, him running off coaches/teammates, and the article about the red carpet treatment hes gotten from houston since hes been there have pretty much driven the sports media cycle for the past 3 weeks.

this kyrie stuff isnt even getting a fraction of the engagements of trivial shit like the richard mille watch and prada bag filled with honey buns that harden gave lil baby for his bday.

It's crazy that Kyrie said this! He needs to realize he's good at basketball, he's not the smartest guy in the room, and he should stick to basketball instead of--

... oh wait, Chuck is the moron who just said this. Never mind.

Like I said, Kyrie has earned plenty of criticism... but for Chuck to accuse any athlete of thinking he's the smartest guy in the room and that he should stick to basketball is *absolutely hilarious.*

That said, part of the beauty of Chuck is that he does think for himself, even if his thoughts are not necessarily grounded in things like logic and consistency. I read one of his books even. Certainly it was filled with some dumb ideas but a lot of others were not trrbll and they were not things other people were saying. Like anyone who talks a lot (e.g. literally every radio and TV host), you've got to discard a lot of shit he says and maybe some of it with him should be discarded with a little more contempt than average.

But that isn't to say he doesn't have good ideas. Even some of his more controversial things, like his dalliance with the GOP. What did he say? When asked if the GOP was the party for the rich, he asked well what the hell do you think I am? He did that not to concur as much as spin the question back on the reporter like, hey, I'm a lot fucking richer than you, and I'm also black. His rationale in the book was basically that Black America has given its unyielding loyalty to the DNC and they haven't gotten enough in return. That sounds like a statement that ahead of its time to me (this was 20 years ago).

So you know, he is like the barbershop banter or talking to your uncle at a cookout. There's a lot of off the wall bullshit, but it doesn't mean he is stupid or crazy or bereft of insight.

And you will know MY JACKET IS GOLD when I lay my vengeance upon thee.

mind you...the cleaver endorsement of nixon was just a few years after a democratic president signed both the civil rights act and the voting rights act.

so its not ahead of its time...as its literally been an intentional right wing talking point for decades that they convinced more and more black people into making sense of ('democratic plantation'...dems keep black people loyal with welfare and food stamps...etc). and prominent black people have said it even in the wake of democrats passing historically momentus legislation to help black people.

20 years ago woulda been around the end of the clinton era...when the black middle class made its most gains in modern history due to clinton job/economic legislation...black wage growth was the highest in modern history...and black child poverty was the lowest in modern history.

so barkleys line of thinking was just as dumb then as it was now. and the black people that say it tend to be the ones that know the least about politics (grifters, youtube pundits, rappers, etc).

And while he turned out to make the wrong move (to understate it), his rationale wasn't wrong or at least not entirely wrong. Johnson did not want to sign the voting rights act but eventually caved. He also thought the Civil Rights Act was the right political move, and said some crass things about that. That isn't to say that Republicans provided shit for an alternative, but that POV tells half the story very accurately.

That is taking it several steps farther than Barkley was, though I can't speak for Cleaver. In the book he was not advocating for either party but rather discussing why he was open to both. I do think Barkley has made a career of fence-riding and definitely drifted in Whitlock/Elder territory at times.

It's not accurate but you get the sentiment behind it and it makes you think about your own beliefs. It isn't on the same level as the type of assholes you're talking about. Looking at it from the outside, I get why some people feel that way because it is sort of a bad cop/worse cop situation--over all and certainly when it comes to race--in politics. The idea is that one party more or less upholds the status quo and the other tries to open up progressive pathways. Instead we generally have an actively reactionary party and the left is often upholding the status quo (we are talking on a federal level here, at least). You also have some commodification going on, where there is political currency to oppression and disparity. I get the resentment there but of course the conclusion of supporting the right is absurd. It's like saying you don't like wearing a cast so you are going to amputate your leg.

And you will know MY JACKET IS GOLD when I lay my vengeance upon thee.

He has some awful views, though. But they are genuine, and I get
the idea that he'd walk things back if proved wrong.

He obviously doesn't know shit about politics, but he doesn't even know shit about basketball. I mean, "Who He Play For?" is funny as hell, but it's literally based around the fact that Barkley doesn't even bother to learn basics about the sport he covers.

He says "crazy" things and seems like a good hang, but make no mistake, the man is dumb.
