I don't think he's a douche I think there's a time and a place for it and I think the reporters in the room have a job to do just like steph does. There are appropriate times to bring your kid to the podium and there are times where it isn't. This phenomenon of NBA players bringing there kids to the press conference is happening more and more.

I wish at times I could take my kid to work but I can't :shrug: Doesn't mean he hates kids or wants them banned.


He's a man just trying to do his job and he was probably distracted as steph was

Only kids at press conference Tim Duncan , Lebron , Iverson , CP3 , Rose and now Curry . I get what other people are saying but the real problem is it was a bad choice of words on Bucher part . You can get your point across without attacking Curry's parenting skills and calling her a " adorable menace "

I can agree with buchers part. Though I think it was a joke and people take it the wrong way but I can see why some people might take it the wrong way. If he wasn't joking then I would take back everything and be mad at bucher but I believe it was a joke

I don't think anything Brian said was bad or wrong

People come for the players, not the reporters. On ESPN the kid was getting more burn and attention than Steph. Post game press conferences are as dull as it gets. I would bet money that the NBA gets more attention, (the press conferences specifically) when the kids are there. Its actually great marketing. The reporters need to shut there mouth, do there jobs and understand that they are only alive because of the awesome athletes, not the other way around. I'll guarantee you that Steph's kid 1000000x the draw that Windhurst is. At least Bucher was making a joke. And I don't like him. Windhurst...I forget he even exists at times. But when I am made aware of his existence...I'm below unimpressed.

Not sure what you mean by "reporters aren't even close to NBA players"; If you are referring to them not being anywhere close to athletically talented as NBA players, it seems like an obvious and irrevelant point

But NBA reporters can be away from their families as much as an NBA player can. So I don't think the comparison of a reporter bringing their kid to a press conference is such a stretch. Both of them have jobs to do and although I don't care enough on one side of the argument, I can see where a reporter could be bothered by having a 2 year old running around during a press conference.

Yea no kidding. The media has a habit of turning non stories into stories though. There is more relevant discussion at hand, like how the Warriors are going to handle Dwight if he returns, and if the Warriors can overcome the drastic foul call discrepancy due to the refs favoring the Rockets on the majority of the 50/50 calls, or when the blatant violence on Curry is going to stop and if he is ever going to get to the line on a consistent basis.

I didn't see what happened but it sounds like she was being a normal 2 year old. Hell my 4 and 7 year olds probably would have done the same thing.

But I agree that there is a time and place for kids and it is not at a press conference or your place of work imo. Sure I've brought my kids into the office but not during normal business hours while I am needing to get work done. All after hours

I've worked in daycares throughout highschool and university.

And that is just a happy 2 year old with a great personality

Leave it to these ESPN "basketball experts" to give parenting advice. They saw this kid for like 5 mins and already they think they are doctors, child psychologists, etc.

Just because you have a voice in the media, does not make you smart.

FlashBolt
05-21-2015, 10:42 AM
I agree with the reporters. At the end of their day, they have a job to do and how well that job goes depends on whether or not the player is giving them that ability. This isn't show-and-tell tbh.. This playground press conference really kills the playoff vibe too.

That's not the thing, though. Reporters and journalists have a job to do and when NBA players are under contract in a business setting to handle media, you should be respectful and considerate because at the end of the day, those reporters/journalists play a large part in spreading your brand just as much as they can ruin it as well. It's cute and all for sure but this is the Playoffs and with Curry's child running around, I sorta lost interest in the seriousness of the game itself.

You guys honestly don't understand. Reporters depend on a story. If your boss tells you to get the scoop on a certain thing and you can't get that, you're out of luck. If you were in their position, you'd be the first to get up there and ask questions about the game. It's almost as if you were a student trying to learn but your teacher is up there in the board chasing his child around; wouldn't that piss you off?

Agree that in all my years of watching hoops I cant remember watching more than 2 minutes of those post game press conferences anyway, BUT its just unprofessional to have a lil kid up there going crazy, its distracting and kind of annoying. I wanna hear about the game now watch a kid scream n drool everywhere, id say save the kids for the finals win press conferences when it would be more acceptable to have family up there with you sharing that moment

05-23-2015, 05:05 PM
Lol, respectful and professional. The only reason there are post game press conferences is because the league thinks it's good for PR to put players in front of the press.

I guarantee that no one at the NBA is unhappy with Curry bringing his daughter to one--if anything they saw the social media spike (especially with women) and are scheming to make sure every star starts bringing cute kids to the podium.

There is literally NOTHING of substance ever asked in a press conference. A fluffy, feel good story about a player and his kid is shallow, but more substantive and real than the repetitive and uniformed garbage that most writers spew out on a daily basis, generic cliches and meaningless answers from coaches/players

Windhorst is literally the biggest loser in the journalism community

So what are they supposed to do? Call out their kid in front of live television and jeopardize their job even further? Put yourself in their position. You're trying to ask questions but the individual's child is running around interrupting every few seconds. What are YOU supposed to do other than work with what you have -- which isn't much because a child is there? And reporters are replaceable -- that's why it is scary when they can't get the info they want and have to start making stuff up (which pisses people off since they did that with every LeBron team and pretty much, start rumors nonstop).

No substance to you but that's not for everyone. They get paid to do a job and depending on the answers, that's how they pay their bills. If you don't think the NFL gave a damn about what Lynch did, guess what? They fined him. NBA is a business at the end of the day and they get paid for that access to media.

they can absolutely write an article without the meaningless, nothing answers given to them by players

as I said, a kid sitting there probably gives them a more legit story to write anyway.

In what world would writing a story about Curry's 2 year old daughter make any sense in a sports column? That is like writing a political science paper on the weather column. The fact is, these guys have a job to do and if they are saying that it isn't as comfortable for them in that situation, you have to give them the benefit of a doubt because they are the ones who have done this for decades.

No they're just supposed to sit there and shut up and ask a question when it's their turn. The kid being there doesnt jeopardize anything. They'll still ask their question, they'll still get responses, and the same articles will get written.

If I was there, I would have chuckled. I would have thought the kid was cute. I would have asked my question and understood that a father cares more about his child than answering questions in a session that he's being forced to go to

I don't care about the kids one way or the other (although I'd personally wouldn't have them there), but to say they're just sitting there until they ask their question and then sit back and shut up is pretty dumb.

I think they fined him when he did not show up at all to the press conference. When he showed up and refused to answer questions, he did not get fined. In fact, I think his exact quote to answer many of the reporters questions was "I'm just here so I don't get fined."

Of course they do. Social media has taken over.

But that doesn't change the fact that the kid doesn't make a difference in their job.

Oh no, they have to wait an extra 10 seconds for a response because a kid has to be told to be quiet.

Really not that deep. Not a big deal at all.
