Kawhi is a superstar talent. He just doesn't care about marketing.


The language has evolved, I think. "Superstar" used to refer to athletes who transcended their sport. Now it is just standard hyperbole that gets applied to the top players in any sport.

That's my sense, anyway. There is no consensus definition of the term. I don't remember people using the term much before Jesus Christ Superstar. Still, the term gets applied to a lot more people than it did when I was younger.
