As rare as it is for me to agree with a Lakers fan, this statement rings true. Just look at how much time Garnett wasted in Minnesota, all for the sake of loyalty. He lost much of his prime to carrying a team on his back, while the franchise beat a dead horse the entire time. Sometimes it makes better sense, short and long term, for both parties involved to cut their losses.
