The NBA has changed a lot and many fans can see it, such as star rapper and GOOD Music member Pusha T. With more superteams forming, the rapper has criticized the league for how it has become today.

"The whole basketball thing, I'm like really, really depressed about basketball in general," he told Bryan Armen Graham of SI.com.

"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," he said. "Like you couldn't tell my dad in the years of Magic (Johnson) and (James) Worthy that (the Lakers weren't) the best team. You couldn't say anything about his team. Now I feel like these days, we have LeBron (James) 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."

He does make a good point in his statement. With today's league, there's probably only about seven teams people truly watch and can see realistically competing. But what about the other 23? It may good for TV ratings and the casual fan, but the true fans must be really hurt.

Pusha definitely seems like one of those people.
