Rapper Pusha T took some time out to express his dismay for the current state of the National Basketball Association. The G.O.O.D. Music artist says he's not a big fan of superstar athletes making a push to play with other stars and creating dominant squads. During his discussion, Pusha also took a shot at reigning league and Finals MVP LeBron James who infamously chose to leave his hometown team the Cleveland Cavaliers to join forces with Dwyane Wade and the Miami Heat.
"The whole basketball thing, I'm like really, really depressed about basketball in general. This new style of basketball: the teams and the trading and players getting together to be on one team, trying to create the superteam. I'm just not into that. The musical chairs, it's like, you can't actually love a team because either the players or the owner are always thinking so far ahead in trying to be better for the next year or the years to come. Like you couldn't tell my dad in the years of Magic and Worthy that (the Lakers weren't) the best team. You couldn't say anything about his team."
He then turned his focus to LeBron James, who had a rather successful string of seasons with the Cavaliers before making the decision to joint the Heat. Pusha feels that a fan's love towards such a powerhouse team can not be as strong after such a high profiled acquisition.
"Now I feel like these days, we have LeBron have a 60-plus-win season with Cleveland, then he goes to a team that's already made their mark. I just feel like you can love the players, but you can't honestly love the team, the franchise, like you once could because of all the musical chairs."
Do you agree with Pusha T's viewpoints on the current state of the NBA?
