you have to understand that journalists are human too.

fans believe that Bosh
will stay if (and only if) the team is good enough. What NYK does has no relevance.
That being said, being in NY has 0 relevance for big media agencies. As big as it is, NY is still tiny compared to the US population. All big agencies target a country or the whole world, so in the grand scheme of things NY is not THAT different than Milwaukee.
In fact, the only advantage you get by being in NY is that there's more media coverage for you, which makes it easier to get to the all star and other popularity contests. But there's no money to be made in that. Who was the last star in team sports that made a ton of advertising money in NY?
