I thought about this because i was reading the NY/mecca of basketball thread. And I'm not trying to debate that in here, but people were saying it's the home of streetball and shit. I've never got why people give all this credit to random ass dudes on the street. Like when Durant went out and shitted on them dudes at the Rucker. NBA scoring champ lights up dudes that don't play defense, and aren't pros, and people go crazy.
If AP trucked some random guy no one would care because he's done it to pros. If Mayweather boxed some random dude in the street and KO'd him he wouldn't get any additional credit...he's a pro. I dunno shit about baseball but if a top pitcher went to some playground and was strikin dudes out left and right, no one's impressed. But when NBA players show up to the Rucker, and Drew league it's amazing when they cross someone. Where'd this low ass standard come from with basketball?
