Over here, and by the way in general american sports coverage is far superior to the UK, teams at the bottom of the premiership in soccer are given a lot of coverage and column inches.

(there is some really good coverage here in newspapers, but not so much on television.)
I think the point of sports journalism is to cover stories. What are our stories? JV might come this year (although that's already been refuted by his current team)? That Calderon was in the gym yesterday doing some core work?

Unfortunately journalism is about ratings. People want to hear interesting stories. We can only talk about whether DD will reach his potential and become a good defender this year so often.

The members of raptorsforum may be interested in other raptor related stories about the upcoming season but I don't fault NBA.com or ESPN or whoever for spending more time discussing other teams.
