With the recent development of TJ leaving I foresee much consternation along the lines of "How dare he? He’s not ready" "Good luck in the NBA-DL" or "Best of Luck, we don’t need ya". Really anything said in the wake of Samuel’s poorly written press release announced his similar intentions last year.
These comments show a lack of understanding and compassion for the player they once rooted for. Let’s be honest. TJ choice of profession is as a basketball player. This has been his goal since he was a child. And now as an adult he has the capacity and ability to make that happen. We as fans may mark this choice as a failure for we believe he will never don an atrocious NBA all-star jersey or have shoe with his name on it, but it won’t be failure to person it matters most to, TJ.
If he can make a conformable living doing something he loves and has worked for is whole life Europe or Istanbul or Russia, is that such a thing to be looked down upon?
Cut TJ some slack. He worked hard for the Cards for 3 years and now he thinks it time to move on.
And bring on Deing
