Michele Roberts says NBA players got "hosed" during their last negotiations with the league. After the players got "hosed" in 2011, NBPA president Michele Roberts is determined to make sure players get a fair deal in CBA negotiations.

“ If you want to be critical of one, be critical of both,” Roberts said from the NBPA ’ s offices in “No one seems to spend a lot of time thinking about what it’s like to make those kinds of moves completely “We spend so much time criticizing a player ’s decision to move but no time wondering or thinking is

At the end of a summer that saw Kawhi Leonard and Paul George join forces with the Los Angeles Clippers, Anthony Davis force his way to the Los Angeles Lakers, and Kevin Durant and Kyrie Irving team up with the Brooklyn Nets, many have criticized a seemingly new era of NBA player empowerment.

But National Basketball Players Association executive director Michele Roberts says not so fast, pointing out that movement appears to be more of an issue when it's determined by the players, as opposed to a team making a trade at its own discretion.

"If you want to be critical of one, be critical of both," Roberts told The Undefeated's Marc J. Spears. "Those of us who made decisions to move, it's really astounding to even consider what it feels like to be told in the middle of your life you are going to have to move. But that's the business we're in. ..."

Roberts referred to future Hall of Fame point guard Chris Paul, who was traded from the Houston Rockets to the rebuilding Oklahoma City Thunder for Russell Westbrook in July, as an example.

"No one has said a word about what happens when the team precipitously trades a man, especially a family man, and the consequences that that has on him," Roberts said. "We spend so much time criticizing a player's decision to move but no time wondering or thinking is anything contoured about a team’s decision to move a player."

Examples vary case by case. Leonard, Durant, and Irving were free agents who chose to relocate to the league's two largest markets and, in Leonard and Irving's case, close to home. Davis and George essentially forced their former teams' hands by demanding trades with term left on their contracts.

Storm Area 51 creator: 'I sparked a movement while I was bored at 2 a.m.'

Storm Area 51 creator: 'I sparked a movement while I was bored at 2 a.m.' The largest thing Matty Roberts had ever organized was a rave in his hometown of Bakersfield, Calif. It featured a few local bands and a couple of DJs and drew about 350 people. He was a community college student with plans to transfer to a four-year school and get a degree in engineering. He worked at a vape shop. Fun for him was playing World of Warcraft at his house. That was 10 months ago — ancient history for the 21-year-old at the center of the weirdest internet phenomenon of the summer, a plan to organize a mass raid Sept. 20 on Area 51, the top-secret Nevada military base that has long been fodder for conspiracy theories about aliens and UFOs.

The National Basketball Association (NBA) has faced a multitude of criticisms from sports publications, fans, and its own players . Many criticized the NBA for embracing hip hop culture.

Roberts says that players still have the right to ask to be traded.

"There's just a perception that owners have rights and players don't," she said. "I mean, it's unfortunate that we tend to, on some levels, continue to view players as property as opposed to people. And so, you allow for a certain flexibility as you exercise your property rights that somehow appear to be more compelling than a player's individual freedom. ... I don't know why, and it could be because there's some issues involving race and class and a number of things, but I don't know that I know why it is. I just know that it is."
