Washington Wizards point guard John Wall was asked his thoughts on the media in the aftermath of Kevin Durant's critical comments before the NBA All-Star Game, and he sang a different tune.
“I think they do a great job,” Wall said “I think sometimes media have to make their stories. Sometimes they’re going to say bad things, they’re going to say negative things but that’s part of their job. It’s like us on the basketball court. Sometimes you’re going to have good games, sometimes you’re going to have bad games.”
Wall and the Wizards were the subject of a lot of negative press during the first three years of Wall's career when the struggled, but he denies that any negativity from the media creates distrust.
“Some players don’t trust other players either. It’s all about you. You can build a friendship with them but still know it’s a business they have to do. So if they ever write a bad story, you can’t ever get mad at those guys because they’re doing their job.”
