It is one thing to be friendly and on good terms with other player (even though I'd prefer it like in the 80's and 90's), but how are you going to go to the after party right when your team lost a crushing Game 7, that's basically celebrating your loss. Duncan and Parker looked miserable and Green is there living it up. People saying Green is just showing sportsmanship, which is ridiculous.
Forget old school players which obviously would never do this, but today's' players with the old school mentality and competitiveness like Kobe, KG and and even Dirk. I think it is pathetic, but on any level to go and celebrate with the team that defeats you whether college or high school.
Let's be honest, if after the 2008 Finals and I guess someone like Ariza, Farmar or even Odom went and partied with the Celtics, you'd be screaming at having them removed from the team.
