Is 'load management' smart or soft?

Now more than ever, NBA superstars are choosing not to play games in order to stay healthy and save their bodies for the playoffs. Stars routinely take games off even though they are well enough to play, and for players like Kawhi Leonard, that means more meaningful impact when the playoffs—and even a championship—come around. Still, others feel taking games off when healthy is soft and robs fans the joy of watching the best in the league play. What do you think? 🏀

Everyone always says, "It doesn't matter what you do during the regular season because it's the playoff that matters." If that's true (and it is), load management is the perfect strategy for the modern NBA.

Kawhi Leonard, who had been battling injuries, regularly managed his workload last year with the Raptors. And what happened? He was healthy for the playoffs and Toronto ended the Golden State Warriors' dominant run in the NBA. IT WORKS.

Working smarter, not harder, is in style now. Get off of load management's back.

Players don't know a thing about commitment these days. They just selfishly take the day off while people pay their hard-earned money to see them perform. Embarrassing.

These athletes get hundreds of millions of dollars to play if they are healthy, and they can't even be bothered to do that. If you're a star of the league, you should suck it up and play for your fans!

Load management has made the NBA unbearable.
