I have no problem with people posting here and remembering them fondly or saying they miss Richards/Carter. My problem is with the people who say, "I'm a Kings fan now," or "I'm going to be watching Kings games now," or "No one on this team is any good or worth a jersey purchase," ect...
Sports are a business, and you are supposed to understand that, in this day and age, no contract is guaranteed as trades can occur at any time for any player. Would it have been nice to keep Richards? Sure, but, the team now has much more flexibility down the line and landed the best prospect in the world by trading him. It sucks that he won't be here anymore but to say that you're switching allegiances because of one player doesn't show pride or integrity...it shows naivety.
