I don"t fully understand this sentiment... It seems to me that professional athletes get lambasted all the time for being greedy and overpaid, following the money and going to a worse team in the process. Some people accused Parise and Suter of just such a thing when they signed their contracts yesterday. But Ray leaves money on the table and favors winning a championship over the money, and you hate him for it?
I understand the resentment because he was a Celtic, but I doubt you'd feel the same if he was leaving any other team to increase his chances of winning a title, and taking less money in the process. Try to stay objective.
