    After 20 games, Lakers will be 18-2 due to their easier schedule and Clippers will be 16-4. I'm ok if Lakers are above us because if we meet in the playoffs, no HCA. Clippers win the chip in '20 & '21 over Philly & Brooklyn.

    Someone like Lou Williams who is in his 15th season and recently turned 33 three days ago will need load management too. Lou has been saying he has maybe 3-4 years left in his career. Rest him when he needs it.

    It's easy…kill the preseason…thats 2 weeks, now you can kill all the back to backs….then they can't say load management and only injury. You can't give MVP to any guys with load management. Do what MLb does if you put a guy on the injury then they have to sit out for 15 days…

    This is a disgrace these NBA players make so much money and they need to rest gimme a break that’s why Kawhi can not be the best player in the league they have the best trainers physical therapist there in private planes 5 star ⭐️ hotels and they can’t play every game if there healthy I remember in the 90s the bulls playing 4 games in 5 nights

    so the owners make billions, the players make millions and the fans who bought tickets to see their favorite stars in advance get fucked by them not playing while healthy. Once again this country stands for profit over people. Either shorten the season or make kawhi play when hes healthy.

    Don’t agree with richard Jefferson on Kawhi as he isn’t better than LeBron yet until he averages better stats for a whole season, but this I agree with him on. Players have been playing 82 games since the 1960s, and they are already playing less than 36 minutes a game in most cases, like I get you want to preserve your body to get more money, but if they shorten the season they’d have to get paid less since they would be losing revenue.

    It's more important for a player to be healthy in the playoffs than play all 82 games during the regular season. The star players should be close to 100% in the playoffs. If Golden State would have taken notes, they would have a 3peat. Yes fans pay to see them play in the regular season but they do in the playoffs too and it holds a greater value.

    Kobe played post Achilles surgery and i don’t remember him ever doing this. The one thing i cant stand about kawhi man, just fucking play. They need to have these games dinged on the calendar so people dont waste their time buying tickets. These dudes dont love the game like the guys I watched growing up.
