                kawhi reminding us how irrelevant the regular season is for some teams. Dude takes a lot of games off but as long as he performs like this in the playoffs you have to be okay with it.

Yes as time goes on, things evolve, but it’s just taking away from the certain things I feel are vital elements to the game of basketball. Nobody load managed in the old days, and that’s what basketball so competitive and consistently entertaining. I just feel it’s a little selfish to load manage. You are here to play basketball. I’m a LeBron fan, but this is even still relevant to when LeBron likes to take the regular season easy and turn it on in the playoffs. But at least he played most games. Just feel like you should be playing. May be the injury is influencing you his more, and if so, then after this should there be load managing. It’s baskeball...

The tendons gets messed up and stretched however doctors cannot see it on tests. And there is no real way to cure it other than not doing anything. So the injury is extremely likely to repeat again and again. I even have difficulty walking now, nothing serious but my foot just bends from right side of the right shoe. Kawhi should not play at all.
