Revealed himself to prioritize family over work, as everyone should do?
By all accounts he gets one month of sole custody with his son per year. Its absurd to fault him for taking that month.
Its also going to help him in future custody battles with his ex to show he chose the child over the game. It will help him long term in gaining more time with his son. I guarantee this played a role in his decision. A competent attorney would suggest he make the move he made as a bridge to building a case for more custody.
It sucks for our playoff hopes, but building a case to get more time with a child is much more important. IDK how you cant see that.
He has a year or two left as an nba player and the rest of his life as a father.
I’d do the same thing if I were him and not worry about the haters.
