The Reality of Reality TV

Posted by By at 17 February, at 00 : 24 AM Print

I’m sure we all know or even have our favorite reality shows that we watch on TV. I know I do. Even though we love to watch the drama unfold from week to week just like anything else  it has its “pros and cons”. “Basketball Wives” is one of reality shows that is running at this time and since this is a website based on “basketball” let’s talk about it.

First of all, the women on the show are beautiful and have different positive qualities besides being married to a NBA Player. I think the show portrays the women in a negative light at times. If you didn’t know better you would almost want to hate them but I guess that’s what makes the viewers return to see what happens the following week. My only issue with the show would be the negative effects that it would have on the many young females that tune in to catch up on the latest gossip, fashion etc…

While the show is VERY entertaining even for me, as I stated earlier, it doesn’t properly display the hard work that actually goes into supporting a man in the NBA. There are charities, businesses, finances, households and families that need to be organized and ran properly amongst the many other things that could and will get dropped in your lap at a moment’s noticed. Instead, Basketball Wives mostly shows the glamorous things such as fashion, traveling, cars, homes and partying. It’s almost as if the show is a “How To” for the wrong reasons which then has a rippling effect amongst our community as a whole. I guess the question is “How REAL is the REALITY?”

Back to the reality of who is Mama Doe… My son did play against both of the NBA Players I talked about in the questions section. The position he plays is not the same as Allen Iverson’s. In his senior year of high school he played in the McDonald All American Game and did pretty good…

    Since this is the NBA All Star Weekend here’s a hint regarding both my son and the weekend mentioned. My sons last NBA All Star Appearance was less than 5 years ago. It was for his participation in the Rookie-Sophmore game and he did not play against Michael Beasley or Greg Oden…

    So it looks like someone maybe guessed. I think I know, but not too sure. Since he played with Kmart and Shaq…and a million dollar smile which makes him a top pick and in the past few years which makes him pretty recent…Would it be Raymond Felton??

    It sounds to me like Kwame Brown, but thats too long ago. Maybe Brandon Jennings?
