The world of professional sports is fascinating. These guys get to do what they love to do and get paid millions of dollars. That is honestly the life everyone wants to live. This dream does come with some drawbacks. These athletes are getting paid big money and they are counted on to help win games for the teams they play for. Professional sports are strictly business first and players second. This can be bad for a teams image in a few ways. For example there is the trade deadline. This is where teams try and score big name players for a price that teams can afford. Typically players that are well known all stars don’t go anywhere, they typically stay with the teams they are on by resigning. Players that are only average or below average typically will bounce around in the league they play for due to trades. Ishmel Smith, an NBA player currently player for the Detroit Pistons has played for 11 NBA teams. Now he could like being the player that moves around this much. Personally I think that can cause way to much stress on a players body. These types of players also have to able to accept traveling and moving living spaces frequently. Also these players have to watch their money. I feel professional teams need to look at the long run for some players. When first drafted these players may sit for a little bit but these players typically progress well. Instead of waiting teams just trade players to other teams and the players deteriorate. I wish teams would think about futures instead of money. Now sometimes need to look at just money, but for those teams who have enough need to stop treating players like property. If teams acted like this think about how much better professional sports will be.
-players would be happier
-Fans would get to see the players they want to see
-Teams would make more money from attendance
This of course is just my opinion and it probably will not make a difference but at least people can try and see my side of things when it comes to player rights.
