But to be fair, Riser didn't help matters. He burned some bridges....even banned one of his buddies (or agents) from the arena for a brief time. And considering where this team was (as in talent and future prospects), I could see how he may have wanted to look elsewhere. He didn't have much help here for quite a while, and Riser was spinning wheels and drafting like crap.
