Former NBA champion Sean Elliott is not happy with how the players are constantly switching teams in free agency instead of building teams:
“I don’t really care for it, to be honest with you. I think the NBA is gone and turned it into a fantasy basketball league. That’s an hour long dissertation, to be honest with you. I think a lot of it’s got to be reined in, you know, it’s kind just speaking to our ‘we want it now’ type of atmosphere that our society is going through. No one wants to build a team, they just want to team up and chase championships. It’s exciting a little bit for the fans, but at what point is it become boring when every summer when you have guys just switching teams.”
Elliott himself spent the entire career with the San Antonio Spurs, except for the 1993-1994 season when he joined the Detroit Pistons after being traded for Dennis Rodman in a multi-player deal.
He was also a teammate of both David Robinson and Tim Duncan, a rare kind of players who dedicated their entire career to a single team, the Spurs.
Despite sticking with one team, eventually Elliott got his NBA ring after the Spurs won the title in 1999.
