OK, you gave a legit argument. I can buy a lot of what you are selling. But here is another question. Can you determine whether someone is a superstar based on the arenas they sell out and the merchandise they sell?
Blake Griffin is exciting. People go to the arena to see him. He brings ratings, jerseys, sell outs. Is he a superstar?
On the other hand, Tim Duncan and his teams were considered boring. The two lowest rated finals in history both involved Tim Duncan (03 (nets lost) and 07 (that's with him playing lebron).
The NBA couldn't even sell out every NBA finals game in 03. Are you saying he was never a superstar because he couldn't sell out arenas?
