For some NBA fans, the significance that the media puts on narratives is frustrating.
That’s understandable. After all, results happen on the basketball floor. Rivalries, reunions and other such interpersonal matters are best left for soap operas. Right?
Sure. At the same time, some narratives are irresistibly juicy, even in the NBA. When players’ histories become interwoven, it’s hard not to notice. Moreover, it’s fun.
