Yes, that, too, but also because he is one of the few superstar athletes who has remained with the same team since introduction. As such, he has a history, on the court and off — a relationship. And even among the few others you could name — Kobe Bryant and the Lakers, Tom Brady and the Patriots, Derek Jeter and the Yankees — he probably has the closest ties to his city (and I only say “probably” because dating models and champagne toasts at the NYC club of the moment is a cornerstone of the Jeter wheelhouse; Bryant and Brady have no allegiance).
