Check out this video of
Jack Nicholson Mark Heisler, our Hall of Fame columnist, weighing in on the state of NBA basketball coverage in the day and age of social media, the 24/7 news cycle and the journalistic need to sensationalize coverage in order to engage eyeballs.
Give a close listen to what Mark has to say. It’ll be the topic of his column Wednesday.
It makes a lot of sense, and it comes from the perspective of a super-respected senior writer who has been covering the league for over 35 years (and who will wear shades and a golf cap on camera if he damn well pleases, I guess-CS).
There aren’t many like him, and he is a gem. Click here to read his column archive from SheridanHoops.com. He has been with the site since it’s start-up last Sept. 6.
(As always, the comments section is open. I will encourage
Jack Mark to personally reply-CS).
