you kind of have a point. but its tough for players to stay loyal to teams when the teams and we as fans are so quick to come up with trade scenarios. loyalty goes both ways. if i were a player i'd only look out for myself. because fans can turn their backs on players as quickly as they were loyal.

look at all the people on this board wanting to trade Demar. you cannot expect players to be loyal when we treat them like they're disposable.

forget how cleveland felt when lebron left. think about the history of players that have felt betrayed or unwanted when swiftly kicked out of an organization.

at the end of the day...its a business. loyalty only exists when its mutual (not often).
