The entirety of this now lies on a GM who wants a king's ransom in return. A return that only a prime Jordan would get you.

Did people honestly think Ben would show up, and it's all water under the bus? They are basically holding him hostage at this point.

Just think about it. What happens when Ben plays in a home game? He'll be booed off the court the second he enters the game.

I agree that he shouldn't act childish because it's all tit for tat at this point, but that franchise is stupid as hell which is typical of Morey.
I dislike Morey as much as the next guy. But its his job to get as close to fair value and fit for the franchise. I agree he probably wanted too much. Hes not getting it now; he outplayed his hand. But Ben is acting like an absolute idiot. Hes a laughingstock of the league. Was that the plan?
