        There's no such thing called Clippers' fans 'coz technically they are the shitty GSW fans since NBA Finals 2015. Hahaha. 😂 😂 😂

          Yes they do. My cousin and his family went to the Bucks game and they saved up a while for that. They were very bummed to see him not playing.

            I work two jobs, leaving home from 6:30 am without returning until 11 pm. I thought about not going into work today to see what load management feels like. It felt wrong and punitive to my team so I went into work.

                        Why give Kawhi a pass and other big name players play night in night out

                          joshua batts I guess Kawhi has some chronic weak point in his left leg. That’s my only guess.

                              The fans do not mainly pay the players salary... they pay the owners by paying the vendors first. The network and tv deals is what is paying the players.. this was to force players to play but isn't working that much at the moment, And i think its because they realize owners try to get out of paying the players more from their pockets and push it on the networks.. while they benefited too. If i am wrong correct me..

                                I guarantee Clippers fans think this load management stuff is garbage... Stephen A. Smith, really?! Do you think MJ, Kobe, Pippen, etc...agree with load management? MJ played the whole 82 games almost every year, won 6 championships and is widely considered the GOAT! Kawhi is a product of the environment that Coach Popovich kind of started, that it's okay to sit out for no reason... it's a joke, guys can't play back to back games...if anything, no player not 'actually' injured should be allowed to skip games til last week or two of the regular season- that's to get ready for playoffs, not skipping games in November or December. The NBA needs to address this issue now, for integrity and fans sakes🙏🙏🙏🙏

                                  @Flying V yeah, I know that.. Coach Popovich was one of the first to use load management on a regular basis. I just will never agree these guys need so many games off, like MJ has said, 'you're paid to play 82 games'... most players used to have that mentality

                                  Tj Playa Pop was doing this stuff back the 2000s. There were seasons where Timmy sat out like 10-15 games just because.

                                Sorry, but study after study after study... and production proves different. Multiple corporations that are on top have had their employees go from 5 day work weeks to 4 day work weeks with extra time off. No matter the work they do the company is seeing huge gains in profits, success, and happiness of the employees. NBA is a business. These people are wrong.

                                            Kawhi never proclaimed he's the best player. He wants championship not MVPs. He even said it. And people still arguing like he'll never be the best player this season. Smh

                                                If players want load management, cool; but the NBA needs to start docking players salary when they sit out. Forget team fines, dock the players no play, no pay.

                                                    Warriors do a lot of load management (Curry, Thompson, Green). And it works!

                                                      Watch until playoff time. Remember how he destroyed the warriors last year

Kawhi does not go 60%, he is on another level, that is why his body needs recovery. Main thing is, he is a winner.

Otherwise it's a "bait and switch". For a lot of people, seeing the stars play is the main attraction for shelling out money. Imagine if you were a lowly Bullets fan in the 80's, and as a gift you bought your family tickets to see the Bulls play a game two months in advance. And then MJ sits to rest. Instead of seeing something special, you watch 48 uneventful minutes with Dave Corzine scoring a game-high 15 points. I'd be pissed - it's not fair to the consumer.

What if you just played 25 minutes instead of 35+?

                                                                                      • Gilmar Enamorado

                                                                                          • ESSJ333

                                                                                            • F Scott

Spurs fans got pissed because of that even though he had led them to a championship and see what happened with that. The man knows his body and he wants to be at his best when it really matters. I would have never imagined he would take the Raptors to that level but the facts are in the pudding.
