Nope. I won't blame him if it is true. Same for Lin. Thing is, this whole thing is not about gratitude or sticking out for the team. There is no such thing in this league anymore. The franchise and the fans will be the first ones to trade you off or waiver you if they don't think you serve their best interest anymore. Why should it be any different for the players? I support and respect them if they want glory or growth. It's not like they are Lebron, whom a franchise was built on anyway.
I've always said I am a basketball fan first and foremost because if I am not a basketball fan first, I will not be able to appreciate the game and the team. And I agree, they should go where their talent will be appreciated and nurtured and used to the fullest. Their talent should not be wasted and hidden so that others can shine.
