            Athletes are not entertainers. They're treated like they are for the sake of profit and as a result, people think they have a right to demand things from them. But hey... If the athlete buys into it, then they should accept the responsibility that comes with it. If the respective league wants the best out of them, they should adjust accordingly. Having said that, I don't think load management is necessarily a bad thing.

                Live nba games aren’t that exciting. In real life it just looks likes dudes in the gym playing ball. Watching on TV is way more exciting

                      One of the reasons why the ratings of the NBA have plummeted and still is plummeting as we speak. It creates confusion consistently.

                        Kawhi Leonard is NOT paid to play 82 games. Kawhi is paid to win championships!

                          Well if I am a LeBron James fan I want to see him play five days a week, I want to see him ball every day and not once a week. If i am a Wilder fan i want to see him fight four times a year and not once, if you like someone you want to see them all the time, if you love food or ice cream you want it often. You want to see your team play every day. So no excuse for Kuwahi!

                              Pay to play. If you don't play in a game you don't get paid. Seems fair to me because I am fan. If I buy tickets to see a game and for some reason I cannot make it to see the game, guess what I DO NOT GET MY MONEY BACK. Why should players benefit from being absence for regual games out side of any injuries not course

                                  This concept is stupid, the average working person needs "load management"... it would take 224yrs for the everyday working person to make what the average NBA player makes in 1yr- comparing median income.

                                  I'll stop you before you start- or 11yrs to make the minimum wage for a player. Let's discuss...

                                            Dominique is destroying all of their points. It's financially bad for the league and the players. Also LeBron has had load management. The spurs big 3. I believe Giannis and AD also.

                                                I agree with Jay on this one. I honestly think Kawhi should play against teams in his conference over teams in other conferences since they don't matter as much

                                                  Bronsexuals when Leonard sits out: “he should be playing! He’s scared of Giannis!”

                                                  Bronsexuals if the clippers win a championship: “of course! I’d be better at my job if I rested every other day!”

If your registered as a sport you cant do things like fix games. Since the nfl is registered as entertainment they could fix games and it be legal. Not saying they do.

Three seasons ago I dropped $500 for tickets to Golden State in San Antonio. The day before the game both Kerr and Popovich inexplicably decided to sit their entire starting lineups. I sat with a stadium full of disgruntled and disappointed fans. The paying fans deserve better.

Jordan played every game he could at a high competitive level. That is part of his overall legacy, that sets the standard.....the standard is set so fans have a right to complain about it and in Toronto the Raptors won most nights he did not play, if they were losing those games believe me it would have been a thing and no one knows for sure they are going to win a championship.
