Trade me!

The article presents the author's views on various aspects related to trading of athletes. The trade demand is not unique to today's athletes. Kareem Abdul-Jabbar demanded a trade out of Milwaukee in 1975. The problem with the modern trade demand, though, is that it has lost any sense of gravity. Players try to take back trade demands like they're too-tight jeans from Target. In 1998, Jazz forward Karl Malone made a trade demand on his own radio program and rescinded it a week later. Perhaps the best advice for today's athletes when it comes to seeking a trade is to be serious about it.
