Teams do this because they're afraid that other diva superstars will blacklist them in the future if they don't cater to their current players' every whim - even if they're hurting their own chances of longterm success by doing it.
Meanwhile, Harden hasn't even been traded yet and he's already talking about quitting on the Nets in two years if they don't win a ring.
I'm just curious when this insane ring-chasing bubble is finally going to pop. It's unsustainable. You can't run a functioning, competitive league like this. Teams need to have some level of certainty and the ability to plan for the future. This current business model is unfair to front offices and fanbases.
