    What should the NBA do about load management?

      @SteelCity MusicMan Because now the training is way harder than the 80's. Probably harder to remain an nba player today than 80's. Dont forget that 80's food quality was probably higher than todays food

      D. Rose was ultra upset when he got injured because he wanted to play so bad but couldn't. Kawhi on the other hand could have played but he wouldn't because he might get injured.

      @Kodi Lauren So that whole drama with Kawhi vs the Spurs medical staff didn't happen? What about when Kawhi got Finals MVP in 2014 vs Heat? Pretty sure Bucks and 76ers are happy he went back to West conference. He has nothing left to prove and shortening the season has been proposed for decades.

    Players nowadays aren’t competitive enough to want to play other great players and want to beat them and it’s unfortunate

    Totally agree with Chris. If you want to take games off when your not injured, the money should be coming out of your pocket. You get payed to play 82 games.

    Kawhi Leonard better hold trophies plural. He better steal Lakers fans in Los Angeles. He better be the Michael Jordan of the Los Angeles Clippers.

    Kawhi has a debilitating injury. You cant compare him to healthy people. If he was legally handicapped nobody would say anything.

    Chris... You are wrong... Fans who pay attention have been begging for either a shorter season or load management for decades... Thank goodness Kawhi has the balls to demand it...

    Forget about ESPN and TNT, what about the people who bring in all the money?....The fans. If I pay $300+ to watch Kawhi, Lebron, Westbrook or any star player play, and they don't play due to load management, can I get my money back? Or at the very least schedule the players load management games and release those schedules so fans can choose to avoid those games.

    kahwi is no lebron or MJ. Kahwi has only been in the top 5 for 2 years.. he will never be compared and it is disrespectful to compare a 2 pump chump to THE KING AND THE GOAT.

    There are a lot of tough teams in the west and Lakers have had a fluff schedule so far with a win against the mavericks in which they had to cheat to get to overtime. Too much hype too early for the Lakers.

    Did Chris just say that Kawhi is "low maintenance?" Dude you are TRIPPIN!!! This fake baby Bron replacement forced his way off a team by quitting on them after they'd shown him loyalty and treated him with the highest respect. Low maintenance... are you stupid?

  • Philip Onen
    Philip Onen 22 days ago

    I'm with Chris on this, load management this early is a rip-off to fans and the league...the players association needs to act on this. I hope ESPN and TNT reduce the paycheck so that the players realize they got to play.....
    Maybe they should pay players on a game on game basis. Why pay them a full season and have players play half and then some... They are paid to play and they should play when they're healthy

    Honest Question How and why do people keep asking Broussard basketball questions he’s often wrong and his “SOURCES” have been shoddy at best. He’s like the weatherman in sports...Wrong more than not and continues to get air time 😫😂

    you set games when you are healthy because you are NOT a team guy...you are about YOU. reason why the NBA sucks.

    The Clippers are being smart..This regular season doesnt matter..The only thing that matters is the playoffs..And its going to be the Lakers vs Clippers..KL will be fresh and healthy. And they will beat the Lakers in the playoffs.

    Either shorten the NBA calendar or start slashing player's paycheck. How much is Kawhi Leonard getting for a season and refuses to play more than 65 games. FOH... Fans should be outraged.. paying 400 dollars for a ticket and not seeing top all stars playing in games because of load management?/!!

  • EmpError Prexy

    The fans paid for this players to play every night,then suddenly players demanding some excuses to not play for unknown reason or not appropriate reasons.Nba commissioner should address this issue.

    teams who do load management should be fined according to the player's salary for that game (1st & 2nd offense).. 3rd offense said player should be excluded from any individual or team awards at the end of the season; banned for playing in the postseason.. that player can play 1 minute for a game & not be penalized for load management but it will drastically affect his stats for the season.. it's their cal

    You'll get criticized for load management if you get a low seed and lose in the first round. Otherwise, I think it makes sense.

    Kawhi is no where near the best player in the world right now and never will be considered. Lebron has more triple doubles than this man kawhi has double digit assist games. Raptors are still doing their thing even with without him. Lebron got ripped for not playing all 82 games when compared to MJ. Kawhi doesn’t have the court vision, the IQ or the passing ability. I can’t imagine why people still call him better than lebron when he still doesn’t put up the numbers that he does

    The media are partially to blame for this. For at least 20 years, the media have been constantly saying that is it is "all about the rings", rendering the regular season meaningless.
    If I was an NBA coach and I was asked about load managing players, my simply response would be, "You have told me that this game is all about championships. I am plying for June, not November"

    Why dont the NBA just give 2 championships? One for the regular season and another for the post season. That way there is an incentive to play every game. Similar to how football league and league cup works.
