I realize that the Hawks didn't make him a huge offer, but the point holds. I'm not saying he didn't have the 'right' to test UFA (that said, the rule that allowed him to become an UFA in the first place is a stupid loophole that should never be there), but that the fans have a right to be pissed off at the player. And they do.
Why? What did the Hawks do other than draft him?
Often teams do not offer draft picks contracts, should fans be upset on behalf of the player so spurned?
