      @Master , but how is it best for themselves? A player can get a max contract in Cleveland, live in LA or Miami in the off season if he wants, so how would a player on Cleveland forcing a trade to the Lakers, be doing what's best for him? How is living in Los Angeles over Cleveland better for him?

      @STS TechSo players SHOULDN'T do what's best for themselves? Also, are players the only personnel in the NBA who DO NOT live up to their commitments? Yes or no.

    Teams are the employers so yes they can do whats best for their business the team but the players are employees and like any other job the employees get paid to do their job and that's it so the players should not be allowed to all for trades at all they are getting their huge money and they and should just do their job unless you want the thugs to run the bank

      So it’s wrong for a player to request a trade when they want , but a team can release/trade a player when they want to. It’s only fair.

          Just remember..... the owners, the league and the refs aren’t good at playing basketball.

          Just like these two idiots. Stay in your lane. The players should start their own league.

          It’s not hard to extort and exploit poor people, every industry does it.

            i say a contract should be at least 2 yrs. teams will have to do their best to keep top players satisfied to stay.

                It's plain & simple, you can either take charge of your career (life) or you can leave it up to someone else. Most of us aren't in position to do so, so we're jealous and upset when others can. Things change, when will you?

                  SOLUTION: Only have 1 year contracts and no trades allowed during the season. Problem solved.

                      lol they are trying to make as much money as possible while they are in their prime. If they get injured and their career is essential over, will any of you "fans" really go out of your way to lend a helping hand?

                        both players AND owners got the right to do what's in their best interest -- get that cheddar !

                        if I invest hundreds of millions in a business, and some 'asset' wants to leave -- and he has ever right to do what's best for his legacy and his money -- then I also have every right to voice concerns.

                          Shannon is a hypocrite bruh I swear. He's saying that teams are trading players yet some of these guys aren't loyal to their own teams themselves like PG and AD go head with that bs

                              Why are people at all surprised that players that never really had much growing up or even people that had on little bit, Don't really care about money past a couple hundred million. Seems easy to figure out to me.

                                  Teams can trade players so why players can't ask for a trade?The team doesn't belong to the player, and these players get paid to do their jobs, I thought that's how the world of work was...

                                    team trade players all the time it should be a 2 way street and not only benefit the owners, players should have a lil power in where they work/live

                                                    Why not say that if a player signs a deal for more than a couple of years, no trading. So really think about where u going. If u don't want a large deal, u missing out on the money

What that mean is that if they "franchise tag" a player, that player CANNOT be traded unless it is being traded for another "franchise tagged" player. A team can franchise tag up to 3 players.

They even waved players or bought them out... that was modern slavery... now the billionars are angry, cause the players recognized, that they got the power and not some old white man with money.
