Do Ted Leonsis and Ernie Grunfeld "fall in love" with their players too much?


Tom Ziller has a nice piece in SB Nation ranking top 75 free agents. Marcin Gortat is ranked 11th and there is an interesting editorial comment inserted... here is the exact write up:

"The Polish Hammer made himself plenty of money in the playoffs, and one would expect the Wizards -- who under Ted Leonsis and Ernie Grunfeld have a habit of falling in love with their own players -- to pay up."

I suppose this assertion could be justified by the Blatche contract but it implies that management possess some "blind spots" or are unwilling to make changes out of "loyalty". Do you agree that they have a tendency to "fall in love" or is it unfair to make a sweeping statement like this?

Either way, recommend the article, which does a thorough and well thought out assessment of the FA marketplace.
