      @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!

    You can spend forever trying to figure out Kawhi and it'll never happen.

                                  If I was the owner of Kawhi's team the contract would read, "you don't play, you don't get paid."

                                      I don't have a problem with load management I just hate that they act like KD and Klay getting injured didn't have anything to do with the Raptors winning it. Those two or even one of those guys get hurt and conversation is totally different.

                                            How can anyone call Kawhi Leonard the best player in the world if he's sitting out games while he's perfectly healthy? To me he's disqualified from that discussion.

                                                  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

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

                                                              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.

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...

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.🐎🏇

                                                                                  • Renata Johns

                                                                                    • Ellis Lee

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.
