This has to be the worst way to find out you've been traded. It was reported moments ago that former Warrior, Harrison Barnes, had been traded to the Kings from the Dallas Mavericks. The worst part, Barnes was pulled mid-game because he had reportedly been traded! Without explanation to those watching, Barnes sat on the bench for the remainder of the game. Barnes expression says it all. Keep your head up!
Lebron James seemed to take issue with the trade and its ill timing calling out the hypocrisy vs when a player asks to be traded with a message on Instagram writing:
So let me guess this is cool cause they had to do what was best for the franchise right??? Traded this man while he was literally playing in the game and had ZERO idea. I’m not knocking who traded him because it’s a business and you have to do what you feel what’s best but I just want this narrative to start to get REAL/CHANGE and not when a player wants to be traded or leaves a Franchise that he’s a selfish/ungrateful player but when they trade you, release , waive, cut etc etc it’s best for them! I’m ok with both honestly, truly am. Just call a ♠️ a ♠️!!
