Has this ever happened before?

Regardless of what you may think of Ray, I can't think of another instance when an allstar level player voluntarily left the C's (who was not already semi-retired, like Gary Payton). Sure, we traded away Silas, and Max, and DA. And some second tier players like Posey, TA, etc. thought they could get more money/years elsewhere. But Ray is the first player at that level blowing us off. It's disheartening.
