Josh Smith Injury Status May Have Been A Surprise To NBA On ESPN

As if there wasn't enough indication that the New York-Boston duopoly over there at ESPN wasn't pay much attention to a "secondary" aka a non-New York, Boston, Miami or Los Angeles matchup in the first round of the playoffs.

Here's a little trinket from Atlanta Hawks VP of Public Relations Arthur Triche about NBA on ESPN's telecast and Josh Smith's elbow injury:

Contrary to the @ report, the have never indicated that Josh Smith would miss tonight's game. (cont)


Yes, we know people make mistakes, even the "World Wide Leader." And there are plenty of reasons to be a little off your game up there in Bristol.

Perhaps you were fawning over Kobe Bryant and the Los Angeles Lakers loss to CP3 and the New Orleans Hornets  on Sunday or how LeBron James and the Previous Best Team Ever* (to finish second place behind the Chicago Bulls) dominated the Philadelphia 76ers on Monday. 

But in any event, you kinda got it wrong there, guys.

But who cares? Game 2's Atlanta Hawks-Orlando Magic game is just on NBA TV and Fox Sports South anyway.
