is there anyone else that is tired of hearing that new york is the basketball mecca of the world, mainly when concerning lebron james? Listen i understand that the knicks are as old as the nba itself, and basketball is a very large part of the culture in new york city. But thats talking about street ballers, highschool ball, etc. Not professional. maybe new york is the mecca of the "and 1" tour world, but NBA? What we are really talking about is market and team history. Knicks have a huge market and long history, but not that sucessful in terms of champoinships. A team like Boston or the lakers have won many more champoinships and also have large markets, but are never mentioned as meccas of basketball. I just think its hard to call a city the mecca of basketball when there team has won two championships in 62 years....it seems more like the loosers of basketball. Maybe im crazy, but isn't china the biggest market in the world? i guess that means they are the basketball mecca of the world. I hate espn, thoughts?

The Mecca of the NBA is clearly DC.

Mike James, and Deshawn Stevenson both on the same team just isn't fair.

I never got that either. Madison Square Garden is a dump, and NY has sucked for a long time. If there is a mecca, which there isn't, it is Boston or LA.
