Overall of the 3 most popular sports Football, Basketball, Baseball I dont think the players personalities are much different LOL People can PRETEND they are but there are a lot of overpaid unappreciative "look at me, look at me" crybabies in all of them. Basketball is just easier to see because of the games make up, on 5 players on the court and the camera is often right in their face.
And its just my opinion I always felt basketball got judged harder because its sport that more so than any other that the avg. joe cant do. There are things more so in basketball that the majority of people will never be able to do more than the other two sports and I think it turns people off.
