    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.

      @Raisean W 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.

    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.

    It should have a logical regulation about this load management, This could be detrimental to the players career and the NBA as the whole.

    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"

    Kawhi is not the best player because he's lazy... Best player in the world should work hard and must have that Mamba Mentality... Which Kawhi don't have because he's lazy 🤣🤣🤣

    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.

    If Kawhi was on my Bulls I’d be cool with lm. Clippers fans aren’t going to be complaining in June when they’re celebrating their first championship.

    Today's players are WEAK. Same number of games played in the 80's. NO ONE sat unless they were actually hurt.

    Why do you think 80+ games it's healthy? It's not a mental block. It's common sense. 85 games x 10 year career = 850 games 30 mins/game x 750 games = 22,500 mins How long do you think human joints can last? Not to mention the countless minutes played in AAU. You guys are salty because the dropped ratings. You doubt give a damn about these player's health. The NFL plays a 16 game season... once a week.

    As a sports fan, I totally agree with Chris. It’s pretty bad when you can pick and choose the games you play and it’s not how that works. MLB has the longest season of all 4 sports and you never heard about jeter sitting because he was “tired” unless you’re hurt you play everyday. Period!

    Great discussion. To me, teams should have the right to load manage if it leads to better results. You load manage within a game, why not within a season? And games are not less interesting without Kawhi . Maybe it's more interesting to see a different starting 5. I'm all in for load management.
