All a matter of perspective.

To be honest, I don't listen to WEEI ever, since I stream 98.5 through my iPhone and when I'm in the car. I don't know how much, if at all, they talk hoop.

I do know that 98.5's extent of basketball talk is White Boy Wednesday with T&R. On top of that, you have Felger & Mazz "servicing" the NBA fans for 3 minutes at a time, and then going back to the topic du jour. I can't recall a time where there was an extended segment about the NBA in all of the time I've spent listening to this station.

I would also argue that Felger's antics around basketball ("servicing the NBA fans", etc) is akin to the hockey talk segment that we all hated so much on the other station. I do feel that he ***** on NBA fans, just like NHL fans were shat on for years.

Doesn't bother me too much as I hate the NBA, just find it an interesting parallel. Are we doing to NBA fans what we as NHL fans were so disturbed by before the Hub came around?
