    I was going to watch the game, but I didn't because of load management smh

      Klay played 5 games and the raptors won 3 of them. And if the warriors need KD to be Kawhi and choke artist lowry, that just proves how overrated the warriors were. The same warriors who played injured Western teams.

      @Jarred page Kobe chose to play with injuries, no one can force an injured player to play while injured.

      globalicon2012 What an ignorant comment. A Superteam by definition has multiple superstars. Kawhi has never played with a superstar in his prime. Duncan was a superstar by way past his prime in 2014. Kawhi took a superstar less Tor team to the title. No one since Dirk did that. Do your homework.

      It is fraudulent but nothing will happen to the Clippers management for this because of protecting the player argument. The players association hasn’t said a word because to a man, they know how brutal the NBA season is, no matter how luxurious the players travel/hotel accommodations are.
      And yes, we will appreciate MJ, Kobe, Magic, Larry, Kareem, Shaq, Hakeem; the whole lot of NBA greats that played through injuries. How about Isiah Thomas going off when his leg was hanging off? Jesus.
      Kawhi will never ever respected for having toughness after this....

        Haha... yup... it's all about hanging in until the play-offs then the beast is unleashed. What to say? Kawhi won it for us in Toronto. The Clippers (and the rest of the league) took notice. It isn't about the fans and again we proved that here in Toronto lol. Wanna change that? Fans... stop showing up. Ya right, ain't gonna happen :(

          I agree with the class action suit because all games are not equal unless you are a season ticket holder. A non season ticket holder is charged more popular players. I didn't like when LeBron did it either especially for the cities that only see him once. I called it last year when he came to Detroit and did not play. Most of my friends spent big money to take their kids and he showed up in a suit because he had a back to back Raptors, then Pistons. I told everyone then if he plays the raptors he will no play in Detroit. Glad I saved my money as a fan and didn't buy a ticket 3xs the normal price.

            I don’t think it’s a mental block with him, I feel he is just a control freak and loves having everyone on their knees begging for him. It’s an ego thing and he’s doing what HE wants and he’s basically giving everyone else the bird. Look at all of his actions, clearly it’s an ego thing. Simple.

              If Kawhi can’t play a regular season of basketball RETIRE! It’s unfair to the league and fans who helps to pay their salaries to cheat the game! Resting the regular season and saving yourself for the playoffs 🙅🏽‍♀️!! Gets paid a full salary but chooses what games and when to play!

                Kawhi Leonard will NEVER be best player in the NBA NEVER!! He has on going medical issues and will never play a full regular season NEVER! Resting for the playoffs and taking games off doesn’t equal best player!! The best player in the NBA does both regular and post season! PERIOD🙅🏽‍♀️

                  Kawhi load managing this way this year is worst because you already have a lot of superstars and stars out due to legit injuries. KD, Klay, Steve, buggie, etc

                      Funny how everybody wants to make a big deal about this now but back when Kawhi Leonard was screwing over the Spurs, the media and most nba fans were sucking him off and saying how terrible the spurs were treating him. Gtfoh the media and most nba fans are a bunch of clowns. Now you all are upset caus it's happening to the Clippers 😂 Oh, and I do agree with fans getting their money back for games that players wanted to sit out on. Tell the fans in advance what the schedual for the players will look like so it's fair for everyone.

                              This prima donna treatment of players will end up costing the league in the next media contract which will ultimately affect the players salary in the next deal. Of course the big stars don't care getting 20M less in their 200+M contract

                                          When a superstar is scheduled for "rest management" at a home game tickets should be half price or u gonna play a quarter or few mins if they do it on the road it's mandatory to play or be fined a game check

                                              It's a good thing Kawhi dont give af about yall and what yall think. The media and fans complaining about this need to get a life forreal. Imagine taking a day off from work and niggas feeling some typa way about it? Go kick rocks ya bums if the man wants a day off hes earned that right. Nobody bat an eye when king james was doing it in his prime! (2010 Miami 79 games, 2011 Miami 62 games, 2012 miami 76, 2013 miami 77, 2014 Cavs 69 games, 2015 cavs 76, 2016 cavs 74, 2017 first full season of career) But the only dude who they have an issue with is Kawhi... the only dude minding his own damn business. At this point, it's like the media is the hot girl who doesn't get rejected by anyone but the first dude who doesn't give her the light of day she goes crazy to get his attention.

The load management, the lack of loyalty to the Raps organization that saved his career, the fans. Means nothing to him. He will play where he wants and won't play if he doesn't want to. That's his history.

                                                                      In the playoffs last year, he pushed too hard and definitely played injured. No question he tweaked his knee. So it's not surprising he's hurting now.

                                                                      If it takes load management to win then what's the problem. It worked once. Can't believe the Clippers organization would be shocked by this. Fans and media need to understand that this is how Kawhi works.

I don't believe they actually believe what they are saying. Calm down. Chris & Rob. This situation is just an easy to get a reaction out of people. A boring show won't keep listeners. These dudes are reaching.

                                                                                        Kawhi really is damaged goods...his leg issue from 2 years ago is degenerative.

                                                                                        Its crazy how everyone is ignoring that he was noticeably limping around the last 3 games of the Finals, and during the summer.

                                                                                        Whatever team(s) Kawhi plays for will be dealing with load management for the rest of his career.

                                                                                        • Jesse Ward

                                                                                          I'm a die hard Clippers fan. Could care less if Leonard sits out. Still have a badass team that's proven to make finals w out him. The Clippers r the team. Put him in on 4th quarter every time. Get as much rest as u want.

                                                                                          • Isaiah Austin

                                                                                            Chris and Rob Parker both sounding stupid period. The teams and different leagues don't care about the athletes most of the time and now people have a problem when players are doing what is best for them to make sure they have a chance at a championship. Also the clippers are not saying he's damaged goods. People are hypocritical and selfish and care about themselves. Greg also started resting players too and no one will say anything about it. People need to stop being selfish and hypocritical
