Come on, man. I dislike basketball as much as anybody, but you're fabricating bias here. Coverage is based on one thing: money. There are way more diehard basketball fans in the city than diehard hockey fans, and any given person is much more likely to be a casual basketball fan than a casual hockey fan.

Basketball gets coverage because it brings in a bigger audience for advertisers. End of story. It has nothing to do with "hating hockey" or any kind of "merit" you perceive.
