It was messed up, but she would not have been doing her job if she did not ask the question.

It is pretty obnoxious, but I don't really know what people expect from the media anymore.  She would have earned more respect from me if she didn't do that though.  Seems kind of underhanded journalism.

It was a crap move by ABC. These things should be handled by the team. They shouldn't be told by the media, but by the Coach,player,GM.

Unless by accident there should be a form of professionalism and respect. Wait until the players find out and then get there reaction. Especially after a big win, you don't drop a bomb on a guy.

It was a bad move just for a the scoop. I would have walked out at that point.

She didn't tell him his child was ill or his wife was cheating.  She told him his teammate had a torn ACL.  Sorry, not really personal news IMO.  Every NBA fan in the nation and stands likely knew by that time.  Had to hear it from Doc? From Rajon himself? Why?   And further, there was no certainty (from her perspective) that he didn't know at that moment.

Yeesh you guys should relax. She wasn't telling him the President was assassinated, or that Aliens had just landed... she was telling him that a guy that plays a sport hurt a ligament. I think he'll get through this.

Extremely messed up and very classless. As soon as she did that I was really? That is just a cold cold move to try and boost your already stupid name and get "better tv". Couldnt stand her before, hate her even more now.
