Probably should stop throwing around "ignorant," too.
So now it has to do with a contract? Before it was he just needs to suck it up but now its in his contract. I would love to see where it is in a players contract that they have to fly to every game with the team?
Oh and it looks like the Rockets are rational (unlike you):
