    What should the NBA do about load management?

      The Herd with Colin Cowherd David Stern would not tolerate that and less he was Michael Jordan.

      You know when I was a kid in the nine’s , even Shaq had Honor. He tried every night.

      Cut the number of games in half, orvthe game duration, and cut players salary in half.. and tickets prices in half (market forces will make the last two options happen).

    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.

                              Imagine if Jordan had done this, if Magic had done this, if Bird would have done this, no Jordan vs Magic, no Magic vs Bird. No entertainment. 👎

                                Don't cut the season. If you go down to 60 games those load management will go to 40 games

                                  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.

                                  You got your wish.

                                    In Kawhi's defense, although it may not be a good one he learned a little bit of this culture from the Spurs. So load management is kind of an indoctrinated thing for him, just my opinion.😀

                                          I do not believe a player that sits, just to sit, should get paid for that game. That's why I don't watch the NBA anymore, until that changes.

                                                Can't compare 16 to 82 games. Every game matters in the NFL, NBA it doesn't. Shorten the schedule, decrease the number of teams that can make the playoffs. Load Mgmt. goes away. It's that simple. The regular season is marginalized in the NBA

                                                  How much is lebron paying you all to say these things lol. They won't win more than 45 games. This machine you are talking about he's building WILL fall apart. They are too old and Davis is already hurt, only a matter of time before he has shoulder surgery.

This is not a team. This is a bunch of mercenaries, lead by LeMercenary and Class-less A.D. (don't forget the t-shirt incident at NOLA last season).

                                                              I think the load management is good when the star player(s) sot out on weakest teams...and they play the strong high ranking teams. Besides that it is bad for business

                                                                after hearing the commentary by Chris broussard today I am extremely disappointed I think your viewpoint is very simplistic and not taking the overall situation into account if Kawhi Leonard wins his third NBA championship and finals MVP do you not think that the money he has earned was worth it even though worth it even though he only played 65 games Chris broussard needs to get a life
