The difference being that while Lebron gets lambasted for being the sell-out he is, Radulov isn't because, apparently, he wanted to play in front of childhood friends, or some ****.

Bottom line, the most important factor wasn't the hockey. Why should he therefore be respected from a hockey standpoint?

Perhaps I should point this out to people: why tu quoque, or "you/them too" is a bad argument is because it's equally possible for two or more people from different demographics to be pieces of ****. You have established that Radulov, while a mercenary(exactly what I said he was), is not exactly unique in this regard. Others have said that it's also not because he's Russian.

Congratulations: not one thing I said depended on Radulov being unique, or Russian.
