Media Matters: Curry and Conley

If you haven't figured it out by now, media plays a major role in how we create perception. I became a victim of this very instrument as I watched my Spurs play against two of my favorite point guards currently. Mike Conley and Stephen Curry were arguably two of the most under rated point guards before coming into the playoffs this year. Let me get you to understand this for a moment, these guys were lost in the media last year in Jeremy Lin's short success. Much can be attributed to Curry's underrating status due to injuries, but he has displayed enough basketball skill that is much telling. Conley is in a small market and plays with two big men (does that sound familiar, hhm T.P and the Twin Towers). Leading up the playoffs, Conley and Curry were two guards that were considered just well above average, right aligned with good before entering into the playoffs. But the narrative changed quickly as Curry was considered to be part of the best back court ever with Klay, very questionable (not to mention that the Warriors did have Monta Ellis). Now Conley is being compared to Parker on ESPN and the analyst are debating who is better. Either this is the continued attempt to make something out of nothing so fans can buy into the created hype or the league really has an agenda against Tony Parker. To sum this up, I enjoyed Curry and Conley even in their college days, these are the type of players you would love to see in a Spurs uniform, but the media has truly disrupted my perception of these two for right now as we play against them. I hope I heal eventually and remember them for what skill set they display vs. what the media displays about them.
