And if he left because he was going to lose 14% to escrow, I can't blame him. To me it's ridiculous that the best league in the world can't pay the best for top talent. But that's a whole other discussion.
How are they not paying their talent? 50% of all earnings go to the players, FFS. The players collectively made 14% more than they should have, and now have to give it back.
