When Photos Lie: Sticking Up for Jalen Brunson

I felt the image could be misconstrued, so, I decided that it would be reckless of me to transmit the photo and take a chance that someone who didn't see the play unfold would think that Jalen Brunson was flipping off the crowd or officials. A photographer from the Peoria newspaper decided to send his version of the image and it was published online with the caption- "Jalen Brunson of Lincolnshire Stevenson makes a gesture to the Chicago Whitney Young crowd." The Twitter-verse exploded. Brunson's historic game was now just a side show to an online circus.
