Get outta here!
ESPECIALLY the last line!!!
As fans we want our players to want to play for us, to be part of a team, to struggle, and win together.
An unproven quantity asking for a trade has a demoralizing effect in the locker room. The kid is poison now. If they trade him, he has a huge target whenever you guys play him, and If they don't trade him...Jesus...imagine the atmoshpere.
