I mean players extend with their team, then to be traded two years later to a team that player would NEVER sign with, and people find this OK... But when a player is a FREE AGENT and signs with another team, some of you guys act like fools!
I can't stand humans.
I don't think players have any obligation to do anything for their teams other than play out their contract. If they wanna leave in free agency, so be it. I think it's silly that people criticize players for doing that. They owe those teams nothing after their contract is up. To pretend that player X should be as loyal to a team like Sacramento as player Y has been to the Lakers is stupid. Player Y got it good...player X shouldn't be bashed for leaving to get what player Y has.
infact if you notice, there isnt much place for loyalty in our scociety period.
check the divource rate in north america lol its a joke. if you cant remain loyal to your own family and or spouse how can it be expected in business ? lol
def agree with your last statement croonz.. pierce is one of the all time best celtics .. it would be fitting for him to retire as a celtic.
Also, a lot of organizations are just not very good at creating "winners" and as a player who plays your *** off, you expect the guys behind the curtain to do a good job as well. Take the Raptors for example, Bosh played his *** off for a long time while GM's were signing guys who were mostly either bad or couldn't care less about winning. Now a lot of people will say he wasn't loyal because he decided to leave which is ridiculous IMO.
Here's the thing that irritates me about this whole "loyalty" thing. If the Celtics know that they can't win a championship this season wouldn't it be disrespecting their star by holding him hostage on a non-contending team in the late part of that star's career where he's only playing for a championship at this point?
