    Your not speaking the whole truth Dwayne wade. Fans can get mad at certain athletes because of the situation they created. If they put their best effort and help the team we won’t get mad if they leave a little later. Even though I don’t like Westbrook look at him, or Kevin garnet or Paul pierce. It’s a two way street, other then that there is a lot of truth as to why people only get mad at player but again that’s cuz your public figures and they are suits behind a desk unless it’s a high profile gm like pat Riley.

    i understand every word of what green is saying, but here is where he is WRONG.... it is NOT about fairness, employees and emploYERS are not the same.... and only one of the 2 creates the rules... that's how it goes... if a player doesn't like it, his only move is NOT TO PLAY, to be out of the league... and that doesn't really destroy the league, but it does destroy his career.... if the organization doesn't like something they get rid of the player and life goes on.... you cannot have the 2 entities be treated equally because THEY ARE NOT EQUAL... if you hire a contractor to fix your house or build you something, you decide what the rules are, the contractor can choose not to accept your rules and then he doesn't get employed and you look for someone else... but if he does accept the job, he accepts the "Rules" you've set, it's a one way relationship... harshly speaking i get green's frustration and he is right on an emotional level, but he is not right in any practical sense

    Really, NOBODY cares about how millionaire NBA players are "treated". Try a 9 - 5. Green needs to just sit down and thank God he was born with his skills

    You making millions of dollars and want to complain about athletes being stuck in contracts they signed. Theres actual people in this world that are struggling to make a buck or working countless hours and never have the time to spend with there children. I like Draymond but I cant agree with him on this topic at all. It makes you look bad and selfish on your part. You need to acknowledge the fact most NBA Players multi-millionaries. You have no reason to complain at all. No one is gonna feel bad for NBA players. You guys are starting to be seriously entitled.

    99% of active NBA players make millions of dollars. If I was an average player I'd play 5 years, retire and start my own company. The owner deserves billions of dollars because all of the negative fallout goes on them. I don't feel bad about NBA players, I do feel bad for college basketball players. A degree is useless unless you need a license like teaching, social worker,etc.... I don't think college players are aware of there value to the NBA. Hardest league to get into compared to the other top 5 sports.

    The thing is, while the millennials have come into power, we are destroying that “Shape up or Ship out” mentality. Gen X are our parents. They thought this way and were too scared to act, so they raised us this way. What’s happening, is we are creating true equality in all areas of life.

    This is so dumb. Teams are supposed to construct rosters to the best of their ability in order to maintain competition and parity in the league, and to maintain interest in small markets - all of which benefits everyone's bottom line. Players have the ability to exercise free agency, but they aren't supposed to be able to collude and switch teams year to year because it makes it impossible to build a team in smaller markets, and competition and parity disappears. Every year you know one team has a 70% chance of winning it all, another team has a 30% chance, and the other 28 are kidding themselves. It's no fun having the chip decided in the offseason and that'll reflect in the bottom line. And real people have to relocate, they have to work with different people and learn to manage relations, and so on if they want to be at the best organization in the top of their field. If I want to be the best stock broker for the best organization in the country, I gotta go to NY. If I want to be the best film executive for the best organization in the country, I have to go to LA. If I want to be an exec for the biggest car organization in the country, I'm relocating to Detroit. That's how it works. I have the choice to choose my city and choose to work with friends but that means I'm making less money and selling insurance or something. This isn't asking to do anything different than what every person deals with.

    Thereisonlyone Zlatan5 days ago

    This is so baffling to me. It's the not the organisation's fault that fans hate it when a player wants to leave, nor is it their fault that the fans like it when teams make moves in the offseason - it's the nature of the business. These players are under contracts that will CLEARLY outline what is expected of them, including how they must remain in shape even if they are not playing. If you don't like the contract, solution - DON'T SIGN. oh wait, the 20, 30 million might persuade them. It's a business, everyone wishes they could be treated "fairer" at work but unfortunately thats not the way things work.

    Truth of the matter is although out of spite and jealousy we would like to compare professional athletes work situations to our own there really is no comparison whatsoever. No one is going to pay thousands of dollars to watch us sit at our desks for 8 hours pushing paperwork etc. Millions of people aren't sitting by there TV's anxiously awaiting the moment we punch our time clocks. Kids aren't lining up in the malls to get a jersey from Bob's carpet cleaning company and it's just the way it is. The direct manner in which players can literally generate millions of dollars daily for there teams don't compare to selling a Ford F-150 once a month. Most of us can easily be replaced but great players well good luck with that just ask the Patriots. Its not just irony that most people complain about how much NBA or NFL players make but don't have anything to say about MLB or Hockey players. Its just hate plain and simple for some ppl it's embedded in there character regardless of race if someone has anything better than what we have the majority will hate. Don't matter if you are pushing buggies at Walmart or stuck in corporate abyss it's nowhere near being a professional athlete. I'm a decent height but can't jump lol but why would I hate on the people that can. Is what it is we just have to be happy with the life we have!

Unless your a sub contractor to the team,,,which they aren't.. .. your in a contract with that team. Its just how it works in every job in the world when your employed to a company or organisation

    However Shaq... Considering that it's business, they don't have to engage in that type of conversation with the players.... They are not the agent, nor do the check writers have an obligation or duty to see to it that the player is placed in a comfortable situation! Its all the NBA. Furthermore, the owner has the right to secure his or her investment how they see fit! It's never been an issue until the money has grown tremendously and now the players wanna have a list of demands versus the pay that's negotiated in the players contract!
