Who knows - maybe they do the same with basketball players, but it certainly isn't obvious. You watch Raptors Today and some of the guys (Chris) give long, relatively insightful answers about their play and the game in general. Hockey players?

"Just trying to get the puck in the net"
right... and how many times in basketball do you hear the most repeated, cliched stuff like "just gotta hit open shots"?

In all these sports it's 6 of one, half dozen of the other.
