Miami Dolphins running back Reggie Bush was on The Dan Patrick Show via SportsRadioInterviews and was asked whether he thinks it’s a good or bad idea that his team is featured on HBO’s Hard Knocks.

“I don’t know if it’s good or bad but it is what it is right now,” said Bush.  “We have it so let’s make the best of it. That’s our mentality. I think you can make a case for both situations. When I was in New Orleans Coach Payton opted not to do ‘Hard Knocks’ so I think you can make a case for both. Some coaches may feel that it’s more of a distraction, some coaches may use it as fuel to bring back passion to the football team and do it for the fans purposes. So while you have it you make the most of it but you still have a job to do and you still have to focus in and kind of go about your business as if the cameras aren’t even there.”

Bush was asked if the only place he can escape the cameras is at home.

“Yeah, home. The house. That’s where you can go,” said Bush.  “Your house or the hotel room now obviously because we’re in training camp. That’s kind of my home away from home for right now and my chance to kind of escape, relax and do whatever it is I need to do whether it’s studying, relaxing or catching up on ESPN.”

Bush also stated that he’s not too happy about having cameras around him.

“I’ve never been one to welcome cameras around especially in my personal life so I’m a guy, I like my privacy and keep my private things private whether it’s friendships, relationships, business or whatever it is I like to keep private and I like to stay there. I feel like there is a time and a place for cameras obviously,” Bush Said.  “During football games whether you’re doing some media stuff after games, postgame, before a game, commercials and stuff like that, there’s a time and place for it so I think going back to college I’ve grown accustomed to it and try to make the most of it while I have it because I feel like obviously for us it’s a way for fans to get a chance to see who we are outside of football or just a way for them to connect with some of their favorite athletes and football teams.”
