He did was what was best for him and also gave the team a return, there is nothing wrong with that, so stop being so butthurt over the trade. No I don't care what he said, any player would have said that because those are things they are expected to say for pr
are reasons. Can you honestly not grasp that?
He should have said nothing...
All he had to say is I'm thankful for my time in Phoenix and I'm excited for a new chapter in my career. End quote.
Had he gone to LA and not said the complete crap before and after I would have been fine. Suns got return. Was it the best possible return? Far from it. The guy made it seem like he did some noble act to Phoenix when really he got exactly what he wanted and did everything for himself. Which again IS FINE if he didn't say all the crap he did.
Players are not told to lie for PR
reasons so don't go spewing things like that. There are ways to redirect questions without having to lie and there are ways to say the right things without lying. To say that he's suppose to say THIS IS A GREAT TRADE FOR PHOENIX BLAH BLAH BLAH is far from the truth.
