Re: “Guarded: How the Media Struggles to Cover Delonte West

Journalists are Humans, not robots. Every journalist likes a subject who will talk to them, give them interesting quotes, etc, and make their job easier. Furthermore, this is sports. These guys are largely buffoons just trying make a buck following the games they love. So Delonte, who's been well liked everywhere he's gone (he wasn't called out for any of this stuff in Boston, either) is given a little more space. Whereas Albert, who by most accounts was a prick even when he wasn't raging, didn't get as many free passes. Belle threw baseballs at reporters and chased kids in his car. We don't know that Delonte's hurt or attacked anyone. He was carrying guns, yeah, but we don't know why. His wife filed a domestic violence report, I don't know much more that's come out of that. I don't condone violence (the gun charge I couldn't care less about) but when put into the context of this serious condition, it puts it in a different context. This isn't some ornery human who has occasional fits of rage. This is a likable fellow by all counts with a serious mental condition. To say there is no difference between Belle and West is absurd.
