If a trade happens, it happens; I'm at peace. There isn't really too much need for "loyalty" in pro sports, when even Steph has no NTC.

Although one could realistically argue that the Browns' recent good karma is a direct result of their "loyalty" to Joe Thomas, as much as we all wanted to send him to a winner to get a 1st rounder, even as he insisted on being a loyal soldier.
I think it is more important to show loyalty in small markets. If the young guys show promise and we are looking at being quasi competitive in 3-4 years, it could entice someone to take a risk in Cleveland while Love is still playing.

Moreover, it demonstrates that the organization treats its players well.

That shit is important in attracting FAs.

They too want a good quality of life (perqs like services at the facility) and to feel welcomed and valued.

I might be going out on a limb here, but the fact that the Knicks and Lakers (LeBron aside) have a reputation for poor management and chaos, as well as occasionally putting players on blast, might, just might, be a significant reason behind their inability to attract marquee Free Agents.

LeBron brings his own chaos...

Absolutely correct.

But the Lakers have been a mess for years now too.
Family run businesses almost always seem to run to shit after the founder goes.
Jerry West's kid was the reason they've been able to be consistently find these rotation players in the last 1st round/second round but they let him go instead of linking him with a future GM spot. Pelinka was only there because he was Kobe's agent.
