In regards to Chapter 13, working with honesty is not something that NBA teams and executives focus in on. NBA teams will coerce a player in anyway it can to either make a player stay or in regard to another team, for a new strategic alliance with a perspective player. The business goal of all NBA teams is to generate revenue and to generate the most fan buzz through strategic alliance with players that are fan favorites. NBA teams will go to any extent to prove to a player it is worthy and these pitches rarely commit to honesty. For instance, teams may lie about a player staying with their team just to get another prospective player to sign.
Never believe what NBA teams try to portray. They will always stretch the truth for profitable gain. Profit is the ultimate decider of what teams view as being honest.
