Want some great blend of depth and breadth of credible, legitimate sports news and coverage in your primary sports media source?
I know this isn’t revolutionary insight for you…but, you probably need to look somewhere other than the ‘world wide leader’ – ESPN.
For support of the previous statement, you should follow this great work that DeadSpin is doing by statistically tracking Sportscenter’s coverage. Welcome to HeatCenter!
If you tuned in to SportsCenter at all last week, there was a very good chance you saw Miami Heat highlights, or ESPN personalities talking over Miami Heat highlights, or press conferences involving Miami Heat players. Nearly a fourth of all programming was devoted to the Heat. Let’s put it this way: ESPN spent more time airing Miami Heat press conferences (13 minutes) than it did talking about the NFL. This for a team that’s going to get smoked in the finals by the Spurs (who by the way, got four minutes of coverage this week). Oh, and LeBron got more mentions on SportsCenter than all the members of the Pacers combined.
This topic reminded me of an entry we ran a few years ago that would pair very nicely right here! Please take a moment and click here for a great, related read.
