Armen Keteyain, the lead correspondent for “60 Minutes Sports” on Showtime and an 11-time Emmy award winner.
Donald Sterling has been effective not having to admit any blame in the court of law. Sterling as well as several other owners have some questionable things done in their past.
“I’m really disturbed at the direction that this so called professional reporting is going,” Keteyian said.
These stories take on a life of their own in today’s news. It flies out of social media and then everyone jumps on the bandwagon.
Keteyian believes there’s a race to be first and not necessarily a race to be right.
The NBA now is becoming a league of numbers men, joining the jocks and the nerd with player tracking.
Player Tracking is when millions of data points to break down every movement of the players and the ball. The sensors also determine the players speed, distance and exertion that they are giving at practice.
“The players association and the strength of the players association will determine how far all of this will go,” Keteyian said.
The new edition of “60 Minutes Sports” will be on Wednesday, May 7, 2014 on Showtime at 9 p.m.
