Though he said the Rockets "felt like family after the trade deadline," guard Kevin Martin told general manager Daryl Morey that the uncertainty about possible roster moves early in the season contributed to the team's slow start this season. "I was telling Daryl, going into the season 90 percent of the people on the team felt like a trade asset," Martin said. "Having everybody looking over their shoulder, that's not going to get you anywhere. Hopefully, next year is a little different at the beginning, we get off to the right start and play like we did after the All-Star break." Houston Chronicle
I understand that an employee wants to feel wanted by their employer and hopes that they have some kind of job security, if they do their job to the fullest potential, but it is a business. The team has a budget, they have to evaluate talent, they have all that other type of stuff to consider. Shouldn't a player just concentrate on doing his job to the best of his abilities? What do yall think about Kevin's statement?
