I have never felt betrayed at anyone leaving, so I don't know if I can quite call it that. This is a first for me. This just makes me sick to the point that I can't wait for the Colts to start so I can forget about it for a bit. I've sat here since he left with a sick feeling in my stomach. To see my favorite organization groom a severe underdog into a star was great. To see him leave before he even reaches his prime is sickening. Maybe in the end Lance respected Jordan more than Bird? Maybe the teammates pushed him away? All I know is this loss hurts from a franchise stand point. How could he have left the same money on the table to go somewhere else? I still suspect Jordan has something to do with it, but I don't know anymore. But to have Jordan steal him away from the Pacers hurts even more for me for some reason.
All I can hope is this is one of those moves that works out best for both sides. Though it's hard to see how losing an asset like Lance for nothing is good.
