His integrity is something we should admire.
I guess that's one way of putting it, but i could care less about Spanish basketball or any international team, but if you come play for the Raptors and our fans are paying you, you should listen to what our management says. His principles were thumbing his nose at all toronto fans, and management, getting hurt and wanting his paycheck. Honestly in fairness, he should have given up his entire check if he was so high on principles, because what he did was wack.
