Why not? It was his decision where he went to school, not yours.

Choosing a college is not something the organization decides for you. While they probably have some input to make sure you don't go anywhere suicidal like a club team in the middle of nowhere, it's still a family decision. Maybe he had a reason for going there that you don't know?

If you personally don't like the guy, that's one thing. Thinking he sucks or isn't living up to expectations when he clearly is is another issue entirely. Maybe your expectations of him were unreasonably high going in. That's the only possible explanation why you would hate on a 21-year-old former 1st round pick producing just like other stars on our team did when they were his age, playing a fully rounded game, and showing signs that he's going to be a dominant force once he fills out his frame.
