In the end, I don't really care one way or the other as basketball is a pathetically stupid and boring sport that should be taken off the air and replaced by hockey. The NBA already has no credibility IMO and does everything it can to swing the results of games for popularity. So what's another publicity stunt in a long line of publicity stunts? But this entire brouhaha over him changing the face of sports is overblown and well overstated at this point since we do not know what, if any, impact it would have. Which has been my point this entire time for anyone who cares to actually read what I write instead of what they've imagined I've written.
