    What should the NBA do about load management?

      @SBanks Uptown the spurs didn't force anyone's hand silly boy. It's NBA's fault for letting it slide. The spurs situation is different then kawhi's situation. The league office is too afraid to do anything cuz they have given the players too much power. 🔋

      @Allen Xiang yup and these fools only have a job cuz there's a fan base but they seem to forget that. If even half the people stopped going to games and watching games on T.V then these players wouldn't even be making half of what they're making, that would remind them quickly who's really writing their checks. Without customers there's no work, that simple!

    God y’all are so dumb the reason why Kawhi is sitting is his knee is never going to the same it’s an Injury for life not because he doesn’t want to play

      How is it deceitful if you knew the guy was managing himself years before signing him? It's not deceit to be provided the exact thing you are paying for. The media feels decieved as they don't get 82 Kawhi games to cover, everyone else expected this

        If this continues espn and tnt need to call adam silver and demand that the price be lower to have the rights to nba games when superstars don't play the game just isn't the same

          Kawhi should have stayed in San Antonio. He let uncle Dennis f it up for him

            I enjoyed this convo but that was a really half-assed comparison to the NFL that they made. Don't touch the subject if you not prepared to make a full comparison with all the major pros and cons.

                This is ridiculous, yes he's probably the best in the nba right now but that still doesn't give him the right to only play 65 out of 82 games. So he's just casually going to take off 17 games even if he's injury free hah what a joke. I like kawhi just as much as anyone but I don't see any other stars in the league doing this to this extent. If you want to take off 5 games for rest then okay that's understandable. They need to reconstruct his contract to pay him for only 65 games. His sense of entitlement has gone way way too far. I believe kawhi is an emo diva on the down low smh

                  I think many of these folks are missing the point by being so focused on the end result. I believe it is about putting butts in the seats. I get it, the die-hards will show up no matter what but you are tempting fate with the causal fan. Short story: My sister and brother-in-law attended their first NBA game last Saturday. They invested and entire day to drive almost four hours to Memphis to see Ja Morant play. My brother in law graduated from Murray State so he wanted to see Ja.. Guess what? Ja Morant, a rookie, was not on the floor for load management. Very disappointing.

                    365 days in a year and most people have to work 5 days a week probably 8 hrs a day and most people won’t even see $100,000 in a year u telling me NBA guys are getting paid Millions and can’t work 82 days in a year for the regular season and remember if a game doesn’t go to OT there work day is 48 mins lol something wrong with the system don’t ask why the youth would rather be entertainers then firemen or policemen or teachers

                      So we all know coach pop started load management for his older spurs players.... but are we gonna act like LeBron wasn't the cause of (healthy player) load management before kawhi? Are we really gonna act like LeBron want doing load management in 2015 , 2016, and 2017... IT HGOT SO BAD IN 2017 THE YOUTUBER @ Oprahside  really made a video crying his eyes out because he spent thousands on tickets and lbj sat and it got so much attention the conversation of load management really became a topic on Espn then LeBron came out  a day later or later that week and said ty lue was the reason he sat out I believe it was before a lakers game I know he played vs the lakers but he sat out a game earlier that week back in march 2017...

                          Kawhi is already a target. Because by doing load management ,some big companies will lost much money. Fans especially those go to the games buy very expensive tickets , then know that the best player wasn't playing. To make those fans more upset is he is not hurt, just do not feel like playing.This will hurt the league's reputation , and ability to make money in the future. Even Adam Silvers can lost his job, if his response is not satifactory with the big companies. That will be YAHOOOOO SILVER AWAYYYYYY.🐎🏇

                            There is also Pros to load management. I.E being able to make a deep playoff run, getting your bench stronger because they get a lot more playing time. So in playoff time you have a much stronger all around team.

                              Possible solutions to Load Management issue:
                              - make the top 2 seeds get a bye for the 1st round, thus making teams put even more emphasis on pushing for wins during the regular season
                              - promote winning the regular season more (e.g. big trophy with multi-million bonuses spread out to all players of a team that wins the regular season)
                              - all-stars must play a minimum number of games to be eligible for all-star game
                              - players must play a minimum # of games to be considered for year-end awards
                              - is it possible to get rid of back to back games?

                                Load management should be a mandatory 12 minutes/1 quarter.

                                And the professional basketball players have abandoned the high-top gym shoes.

                                  for all those bronsexuals claiming lebron would be killed for load management....
                                  i would like to remind that in 16 seasons in league Lebrick only played 1 time full 82 games. every season he sits around 10 games for load management for first 15 seasons. look at his days in miami !!

                                    At the same age and harder competition, Jordan played all 82 games in a season..lebron also did..and also kobe and also other nba legend..kawhi is young not even 30 yo but missed 20 games in a season for load management?..those legend will call him soft..

                                      Of course he'll win a title. He's less beat up. He lowers his chance of getting injured by 20%! Everyone else is putting mad miles on their bodies. Not him. To me it's cheating.

                                          I going to say this and I was thinking this before Chris said it. Kawhi Is not the best player in the NBA. Using Load management. Jordan and Kobe never used load management.

                                              4:47 because more rest leads to better performance. But yes pay the players less when they choose more rest

                                                  They're going about this load management thing the wrong way. They should play but on limited minutes. Just not playing cause you don't want to is slap in the face to the fans who pay their hard earned money to see the top product.

                                                          This is exactly what the Spurs were saying but everyone turned a blind eye or criticized the Spurs because they wanted Kawhi to go to LA. It's that bias against small market teams.
