Your just digging yourself deeper. You explicitly stated that people treat players like children incapable of making their own decisions. They blame the agents because they think the players aren't culpable for their own actions.... then in the same breath you treat Durant like a child and and refuse to hold him culpable for his own decisions. You blame everyone else, because clearly it's not possible that Durant could have made a decision that carried inherent risk and decided as an adult that he was okay with that risk.
Stop trying to justify the unjustifiable. You got called on your hypocrisy, own it.
There's nothing to own. I believe KD made a decision to play based off of bad medical advice. There's literally no correlation to whether or not the good boy AD is being manipulated by big bad Bron instead of paying an agent to get him to where he wants to be. People are saying AD is employing an agent who isn't working in the best interest of his career. I don't believe Golden State acted maliciously, I believe they acted incompetently. If you read back to the thread clyde derailed this thread to bring up you'll find me saying "at best golden state acted incompletely, at worst maliciously" or something along those lines.
What clyde21 is trying to do by derailing this thread about AD is take away the blame from golden state in the KD situation. The fact of the matter is that any player wants to play in the finals and will do anything they can to do it. It's the job of the trained medical staff to know if they are risking reinjury and stopping them from playing. The medical staff, and by extension the team, either was incompetent and didn't know the risk or knew the risk and let him play through it. That's been my stance all along. How exactly is that the same as not thinking Anthony Davis being manipulated into making a trade request?
just so we can keep score here:
1- Davis is his own man and isn't being manipulated to coerce a trade out of NOP
2- Durant is not his own man, and was manipulated by the Warriors into playing when he wasn't ready
lol, **** outta here.
1 desicion based off personal preference, the other based off medical science.
Remember way back in game three when Klay Thompson was pleading to play and they didn't let him? That's exactly what should have been done to KD. That's a comparable situation, not whether or not a paid employee is making career decisions for Anthony Davis.
I guess it's tough for a 16 year old warrior fan to accept that their team is wrong. They haven't really faced any adversity in, what, 5 years now. Your must barely remember them losing that series when you were 11 years old. That's the only reason I can sum up to explain your complete lack of critical thinking or objectivity.
