Default what the deal with street cred?

You always hear sportswriters talking about how certain players have it or need it.

why the hell would a player care about having street cred instead of the cred of his fellow nba players which is all that should matter?

It's a black thing. IMO, its just a bullshiet. Whoever sportwriter writes that is an idiot. It has nothing to do with being successful in NBA.

Theres a couple things..

First, alot of these players are from the "streets". Melo, AI, etc... they dont wanna lose touch with where they came from.

Second, endorsements. If a player has street cred, he'll sell more gear.
