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).
+1 for recognizing the fickleness of fans and how it mirrors the loyalty of players in this day and age. Interesting point.
