The NBA has to at least cater somewhat to the demographic that supplies over 85% of its players. But compared to rules set up by the league (age limit, dress code) the NBA could be percieved as a lot more "gangsta." If anything I would say the league has tried to distance itself the more urban and "gangsta" elements.

What they do during the all star break is just a lip service to the fact that over 85% of the league comes from communities where the "gangsta" image is a major identity amongst young males.
