It’s now cliché to point out that because players have no expectation of loyalty from teams that teams should have no expectation of loyalty from players. But it’s true! The Spurs were mighty sore over Kawhi’s trade request – the team’s treatment of him in its press release announcing the trade was so petty – and DeRozan is mighty sore over the Raptors’ late reversal. Everyone should be mad! Trade requests, free agency exits, and trades themselves are incredibly disruptive! Other than injury, it’s the biggest downside in high-level pro sports.
