In the NBA, legacy plays a huge factor. Some of the most legendary franchises in the sport did not make this year’s playoffs: The Lakers, The Celtics, The Knicks, The Suns, and The 76ers are at home watching while new blood is being spilled by The Clippers, The Warriors, The Thunder and The Raptors. The expectation to be great can be a curse as much as it’s a blessing. When playing for a legendary franchise, the path may be paved for you…there may chauffeurs, better coaching, better meals, better training facilities, and more involved fans. But with all that pomp there are less chances to evolve and grow. Mistakes are not means of improvement but reasons to be traded. Some players come out of the gates great. Other take years to rise. The music industry follows much of the same pedigree. Hype, whether real or media-created, raises the bar for an artist before they’ve had the chance to step out onto the track and show people what they’re capable of. Our unrealistic expectations for greatness on artist can hamper their progression before they reach the plateau they have the ability to reach.
