Is that why every year there's 3-4 big name players leaving small market teams to join the Lakers and Heat?
The Lakers and Heat can't pay them more. A lot of NBA players tend to want to play where:

1. It's warm all year.

2. Considered a "hip" place to live. (someplace the opposite of say, Milwaukee)

3. Have a chance to win.

Honorable Mention: Florida has no state income tax....when you're making 7 or 8 figures that's a nice perk.
