The Dodgers sign superstar free agents virtually every off-season and none of those players come in for criticism. The Yankees do the same (though with less success of late than the Dodgers).

Baseball is a COMPLETELY different animal than basketball.

You will be hard pressed to find any okc fans that are still pissed that he left. It is the way he left. He drug the process out and led the THunder on until it was too late to recover. He also could have made sure the Thunder got something in return. Instead he went scortched earth.

And then add into the fact that the Thunder were up 3-1 vs one of the greatest teams of all time and ended up losing the series (not only because KD played poorly, but he was a big part of the collapse). And then to go this same team that just beat the Thunder....it's just weak. He valued getting an easy ring vs doing it the right way

I mean, all you have to do is go read nba legend's comments on his move.
His ring isn't worth anything

Trae Young’s season is over. Played very poorly in the series vs Miami.

Yeah, it's not even May and there are no more NBA Sooners to root for. I feel like I'm back in the 2000s decade. Trae completely lost confidence in his shot in this series. Perhaps the pressure of performing to the level of his play in last year's postseason got to him, I don't know. Come November, I hope we get back the Trae who had the best season on any NBA Sooner EVER.

After the pleasantly surprise year from Austin Reeves, we will again likely have 4 NBA Sooners to root for next year. After seeing his passion in the last two games against the Celtics, I don't get the impression Blake wants to retire just yet. However, as a fan, it's not fun seeing a box score from a 6-time All-Star that reads something like: "Blake Griffin - DNP Coach's Decision".

Trae's season is over he had more turnovers than baskets made in the series. Ouch. Miami had a lot to do with that.
