Why shouldn't he? Where does it say in his contract with the raps that he has to love and cherish every moment of his career. Has it occurred to you the Italian Bargs might actually be playing for the Canadian Raps for financial gain? Probably not.

You guys seem to think being an NBA is different to other jobs. It isn't. Sometimes its just work. Something you do for money. It's up to the employer to ensure their workforce stays motivated. This set up is almost the norm for every career in every workplace in the world.

ALSO - Demars transition from being a rookie to an NBA starter with a large contact has been almost identical to Bargs. Gifted started role, never lost it despite inconsistent production, rewarded a large contract a few seasons later. I'm not saying they're the same in terms of their commitment to the game and effort levels but facts are facts. Try and read what people are implying in their posts before you come back with nonsense like that.
