Anyone with the slightest insight into teams knows that the inaccuracy is appalling. If any of the journos' had bothered to ask- email, convo, text whatever any of the playing or coaching staff of teams they would realise how far off they are with A LOT of their 'facts'.

If they paid attention to see who is/isn't playing ie imports/significant player - if they play the next week - maybe this should take that into consideration. They don't even look past imports/36ers players and give no acknowledgement to other players on the team that may not be "big names" or top scorer(s) but play good defense/assists, etc. All aspects of the game should be looked at. It's not like they are limited to the amount of characters they can use for each review.

It's just like the commentating during the live games which was absolutely horrendous.

Just bad journalism. Maybe some 5th graders could give them some input.

To be fair, the imports are the best players in the league.

Yes they are hence why they are recruited and some paid, but it's not all about them. If we don't recognise our local players then what's the point. We might as well just play a 2 on 2 then and then get the pathetic write ups on them.

Isn't it a bit unrealistic to want them to write about every player?

Pretty sure these journos don't get paid - likely work experience as part of their uni degree.

Either way, if you can do better then put your hand up.
