More than any other league – at least in America – the NBA world attaches great importance to the fact that the players are in top markets.

When a star player on his current team has not won a championship , fans and media members are pushing the idea of ​​the star player leaving his team for a bigger market – Los Angeles, Miami, New York, etc.

Damian Lillard didn’t win a championship in Portland, but he had a pretty incredible one Career and he kept saying he wanted to end his career with the TrailBlazers. That didn’t stop people from talking about him playing elsewhere, though.

Of course Stephen A. Smith is one of those who talk like that. The ESPN personality said he’d like to see Lillard play in a big market like New York – a market that hasn’t won a championship in decades.

Many NBA fans aren’t happy with this type of discussion. It’s not the kind of discussion we have in other leagues and many believe it’s not healthy for the league as a whole.

Every other league: « Check out all these cool interesting superstars in different cities with theirs own identity! «
