He violated that trust when he tested positive for weed in 2009. Simply put if you look a man in the eye, shake his hand, and tell him you wont, then do, you've forever lost that man's trust. Once you've lost a man's trust he doesn't want to go to war with you anymore.
Tomlin was betrayed by Holmes, thus he was traded, period the end.
Now stop making stupid threads crying about his departure folks! He brought it upon himself.
This entire assertion is ridiculous. As if you know what happened in any
meetings between the two. And as if a broken promise has to end up
in trading the player for peanuts. Broken promises happen every day;
they don't have to end the total relationship. If they did, the divorce rate
would explode by 100,000%
