They're completely different sports. I don't know why you even wonder this. In one sport, bodychecks are not only legal and necessary, but loved and lauded, for the most part. In basketball the complete opposite is true.

It's like asking why tackling someone in football is seen as okay but not in basketball. It's just a different sport with a different set of rules and standards.

Violence makes hockey and is part of the game. Hockey needs more
violence and more HD cameras to improve ratings. The violence
of the game adds to the drama. A hockey game without a fight is boring.
With fighting, it is the MMA of team sports.

There is no place for violence in Hoops especially when the superstars
of the game are airborne putting a facial on the opponents journeyman
center. The game is about performance and violence detracts from it.
Plus, the fans are closer to the court and not separated by the
glass of the rink. Separation of the rink from the fans keeps fans
out of the players business. In hoops we dont have it or need it.

The sports are designed differently where fighting helps the hockey game become more exiting compared to basketball where it detracts from the game because of all the negative media attention. The media attacks fighting in NBA with a harder stance because it is an opportunity to reinforce the stereotype of a black person being more likely to get into fights. One important thing about basketball is that it hurts the image more sevrely because the public is so close to the action and also the player's faces are shown with no helmets thus being more identifiable to the public. NBA does not want to attach fighting to any of its players because the images of their face are very accessible to the public.
