    Why the hate on players wanting to leave teams that aren't winning?

    Kevin Garnett said it best, and I'm paraphrasing " I lost a lot of good years being loyal to the team (Minnesota Tims)." It's great that these players are getting smart. Think about all of what Greats could have been with players that stayed well past what they should've:

    Brett Farve (Packers) NFL

    Daunte Culpepper (Minnesota) NFL

    Kevin Garnett (Minnesota) NBA

    Patrick Ewing (Knicks) NBA 15 years with them never won a ring

    Dan Marino love the guy one of the Great hall of Fame QB's but stayed with Miami just too long

    John Stockton- Utah NBA

    Karl Malone - Utah NBA

    Charles Barkley SIXERS

    Barry Sanders DET

    I don't see the fuss! Let these guys be smart and get out while their legs are still good.

    The Packers were a perennial playoff team the whole time Favre was there...

    I think your point would be better served if you had put Favre with the team that drafted him, the Falcons.

    Garnett never had to face Jordan like that... and face it.. The Wolves like the Clippers, are just a terrible franchise. Always was, always will be.

    I seem to remember Garnett and the Wolves winning 60 plus games one year and having the best record in the NBA.
    oh YEAH?

    To General.

    Maybe those players are not doing all the things they can do themselves to help "said" team win a championship!
