    1. The Herd with Colin Cowherd

      What should the NBA do about load management?

      1. Durango Basics

        @SteelCity MusicMan Because now the training is way harder than the 80's. Probably harder to remain an nba player today than 80's. Dont forget that 80's food quality was probably higher than todays food

      2. gary marasigan

        D. Rose was ultra upset when he got injured because he wanted to play so bad but couldn't. Kawhi on the other hand could have played but he wouldn't because he might get injured.

      3. Ollie Ollie

        @Kodi Lauren So that whole drama with Kawhi vs the Spurs medical staff didn't happen? What about when Kawhi got Finals MVP in 2014 vs Heat? Pretty sure Bucks and 76ers are happy he went back to West conference. He has nothing left to prove and shortening the season has been proposed for decades.

      4. CJ P

        Adam Silver is the worst thing to happen to the NBA.

      5. Moses The Great

        JayyCee4 !! Blake is coming off of an injury .Most players usually won’t do back to back games straight off the jump .

    2. Why We Love Film

      NFL players don’t have Load Management because they can’t afford it. NFL contracts are incentive based and players can make a lot of money for earning bonuses. Their contracts usually say if they rush for a certain amount of yards, or throw for a certain amount of yards, or reach a certain number of tackles or sacks they earn more money. Thats why whenever a player signs a new deal you always hear how much is Guaranteed. A player can sign for $100 Million but only $64 Million is guaranteed. The other $36 Million is incentive based. So if they sit out because of Load Management that’s one game less they have to reach those incentives. The NBA should do something like that because NBA contracts are fully guaranteed. So there’s no incentive to not take games off here and there.

    3. Kenneth Wilkins

      Chris, LeBron has only played 82 games 1 time. Would you call that “Load Management”? In 17 seasons and he hasn’t really ever had a major injury. Go figure.

    4. Jeff Fernandez

      Play smart don’t play hard

    5. Chris Spencer

      They sound like they want players to get injured and keep playing for their entertainment

    6. sugahillind

      Factz 💯 the NFL don't load management

    7. Tysauce

      Players nowadays aren’t competitive enough to want to play other great players and want to beat them and it’s unfortunate

    8. Laventure Kaizen

      Kawhi Leonard is very high maintenance.

    9. Joel Walker

      Kawhi is a diva.

    10. Gray Bullock

      Totally agree with Chris. If you want to take games off when your not injured, the money should be coming out of your pocket. You get payed to play 82 games.

    11. Mushroomstamp

      Cheating the fans is never the way to go ask the greats . People will remember

    12. Journal Wright

      Kawhi Leonard better hold trophies plural. He better steal Lakers fans in Los Angeles. He better be the Michael Jordan of the Los Angeles Clippers.

    13. Sea Pea

      Kawhi has a debilitating injury. You cant compare him to healthy people. If he was legally handicapped nobody would say anything.

    14. Daniel Jacobovitz

      Chris... You are wrong... Fans who pay attention have been begging for either a shorter season or load management for decades... Thank goodness Kawhi has the balls to demand it...

    15. worroutkast1

      Forget about ESPN and TNT, what about the people who bring in all the money?....The fans. If I pay $300+ to watch Kawhi, Lebron, Westbrook or any star player play, and they don't play due to load management, can I get my money back? Or at the very least schedule the players load management games and release those schedules so fans can choose to avoid those games.

    16. Devn

      kahwi is no lebron or MJ. Kahwi has only been in the top 5 for 2 years.. he will never be compared and it is disrespectful to compare a 2 pump chump to THE KING AND THE GOAT.

    17. Ttruckk

      There are a lot of tough teams in the west and Lakers have had a fluff schedule so far with a win against the mavericks in which they had to cheat to get to overtime. Too much hype too early for the Lakers.

    18. Daniel Johnson

      woah.... Jack didn't play every tournament.

    19. Gregory Castillo

      Kawhi is retiring after this contract

    20. Corey Davis

      The Nba should do what the nfl does if you don’t play you don’t get paid.

    21. Kruppt808

      Colin has already reversed this take lol

    22. Axel Zectro

      NBA players are dumb. If you wanna rest pick your 8 games and say you got a “sprain”. Boom problem solved

    23. DJones205

      Preeeach Chris!

    24. alextrose7

      Did Chris just say that Kawhi is "low maintenance?" Dude you are TRIPPIN!!! This fake baby Bron replacement forced his way off a team by quitting on them after they'd shown him loyalty and treated him with the highest respect. Low maintenance... are you stupid?

    25. Philip Onen

      I'm with Chris on this, load management this early is a rip-off to fans and the league...the players association needs to act on this. I hope ESPN and TNT reduce the paycheck so that the players realize they got to play..... Maybe they should pay players on a game on game basis. Why pay them a full season and have players play half and then some... They are paid to play and they should play when they're healthy

    26. John Jeter

      Honest Question How and why do people keep asking Broussard basketball questions he’s often wrong and his “SOURCES” have been shoddy at best. He’s like the weatherman in sports...Wrong more than not and continues to get air time 😫😂

    27. Tom Yazel

      you set games when you are healthy because you are NOT a team guy...you are about YOU. reason why the NBA sucks.

    28. Jayeson Mack

      The Clippers are being smart..This regular season doesnt matter..The only thing that matters is the playoffs..And its going to be the Lakers vs Clippers..KL will be fresh and healthy. And they will beat the Lakers in the playoffs.

    29. determination a mi title

      The sitting queen Kawhi Leonard

    30. Keith S.

      Low maintenance? Lol

    31. roxxylala26

      Either shorten the NBA calendar or start slashing player's paycheck. How much is Kawhi Leonard getting for a season and refuses to play more than 65 games. FOH... Fans should be outraged.. paying 400 dollars for a ticket and not seeing top all stars playing in games because of load management?/!!

    32. EmpError Prexy

      The fans paid for this players to play every night,then suddenly players demanding some excuses to not play for unknown reason or not appropriate reasons.Nba commissioner should address this issue. #playthecontract

    33. Earl Daniel Lee

      teams who do load management should be fined according to the player's salary for that game (1st & 2nd offense).. 3rd offense said player should be excluded from any individual or team awards at the end of the season; banned for playing in the postseason.. that player can play 1 minute for a game & not be penalized for load management but it will drastically affect his stats for the season.. it's their cal

    34. Jack Xiao

      You'll get criticized for load management if you get a low seed and lose in the first round. Otherwise, I think it makes sense.

    35. PULLUP J

      Lebron still have it

    36. Rainer Vivas

      Please Follow @hugoadventuresj20

    37. Vilouboy

      PREACH!!!! I can't work 6 months out of the year but get a years salary. NBA players are spoiled kids

    38. Jefferson Candia

      lebron has been doing that for years.m

    39. Mark Anthony Cruz II

      It should have a logical regulation about this load management, This could be detrimental to the players career and the NBA as the whole.

    40. mtrujillo1973

      Neither one of these teams will take the finals this year Hop off the bandwagon...front runners

    41. Shawn Baker

      Chris Broussard dropping FACTS!!!!

    42. Will

      Kawhi is no where near the best player in the world right now and never will be considered. Lebron has more triple doubles than this man kawhi has double digit assist games. Raptors are still doing their thing even with without him. Lebron got ripped for not playing all 82 games when compared to MJ. Kawhi doesn’t have the court vision, the IQ or the passing ability. I can’t imagine why people still call him better than lebron when he still doesn’t put up the numbers that he does

    43. Luke Cardenas

      Cry babies. let the winner be!

    44. fishbone3333

      The media are partially to blame for this. For at least 20 years, the media have been constantly saying that is it is "all about the rings", rendering the regular season meaningless. If I was an NBA coach and I was asked about load managing players, my simply response would be, "You have told me that this game is all about championships. I am plying for June, not November"

    45. voetbal12

      You're all morons.

    46. Evo1122

      Kawhi is not the best player because he's lazy... Best player in the world should work hard and must have that Mamba Mentality... Which Kawhi don't have because he's lazy 🤣🤣🤣

    47. Evelyn Tolleno

      If anyone deserves load mgnt its gonna be lbj.. how in d world that this man becomes d greatest basketball player n d world and then resting though healthy...

    48. dizzy mike

      Just because u dont like it...doesnt mean it will go ur way

    49. Mustafa

      Why dont the NBA just give 2 championships? One for the regular season and another for the post season. That way there is an incentive to play every game. Similar to how football league and league cup works.

    50. Sumanth Mukkala

      Why are these two so good together? Please do more often.

    51. jessie gomez

      Chris is right.Clippers are the best team and best defensive team.If clippers dont win the chip.kawhi amd the clippers were failures plain and simple.And clipper fans know this.Clippers aint winning a 💍.Karma aint finish with yall yet.thank kwahi for that.karma vs kawhi.who wins.KARMA.think im lieing.just watch as the season goes by.

    52. Ethan Vaughan

      He has left knee problems

    53. Ethan Vaughan

      ESPN is only people who care

    54. Doori Ha

      Never compare Kawhi to MJ or LBJ, those 2 didnt have to deal with that load management BS to win it all

    55. Cyrus Farid

      If Kawhi was on my Bulls I’d be cool with lm. Clippers fans aren’t going to be complaining in June when they’re celebrating their first championship.

    56. Spacedawn Inc.- Gaming Clan Archive

      No respect for maxing out your body for a ring

    57. Jesper Blomqvist

      i don't think kawhi is the best in the world, if you are the best you don't sit out games end of it, i still think Giannis is the best sry boys

    58. Robert Jacobson

      No other player can get a bucket like Kawhi? Umm james harden is averaging 38ppg! Colin says dumb things

    59. Carlos I Sanchez

      Colin: “ Nobody can get a bucket like kawhi” Harden: “Am I Joke to you”

    60. Bada Bing

      I always bought season tickets ,not anymore ,5 of us cancelled Sixers tickets .Cuz of bens poor shooting

    61. ShutUpNerd

      Great points by Broussard on this topic.

    62. Brian Miller

      I assume he is still getting pad for those load managed games?

    63. TTV-GodOfRage 809

      I dont usually agree with chris but hes right

    64. Grade A Pedigree

      Now all bs aside about who's the 🐐 MJ, Kobe or LeBron never took games off just cause & as good as kawhi Leonard is he can't be considered the best if he can't play to that standard!

    65. Forrest Hunter

      Today's players are WEAK. Same number of games played in the 80's. NO ONE sat unless they were actually hurt.

    66. Mr Bouche

      I'm saving this video for sec after the finals are over .

    67. John Sacco

      Keep in mind that Cowherd called Kawhi overrated last year....

    68. sammy davis

      L J just did a back to back at age 34

    69. BenchPressing & Blunts

      Fans should get discount seats on days the star players dont play.

    70. Albert Omwenga Nyakundi

      Load management is nonsense. Some of the highest paid, privileged people in the world taking time off because time off! Garbage.

    71. Tomuchanger YT

      Kwahi is not on lebron's level

    72. Charles Hodge

      LeBron has done load management in the past, it effected his legacy so he stopped... it like I’m in a parallel universe and everyone has forgot this. www.espn.com/nba/story/_/id/15084974/lebron-james-cleveland-cavaliers-sit-game-tuesday-rest

    73. Evan Sidener

      NBA players don't play in the olympics

    74. For Cause

      Why do you think 80+ games it's healthy? It's not a mental block. It's common sense. 85 games x 10 year career = 850 games 30 mins/game x 750 games = 22,500 mins How long do you think human joints can last? Not to mention the countless minutes played in AAU. You guys are salty because the dropped ratings. You doubt give a damn about these player's health. The NFL plays a 16 game season... once a week.

    75. Mike Souza

      it is disrespectful to fans Title or not

    76. conor allen

      As a sports fan, I totally agree with Chris. It’s pretty bad when you can pick and choose the games you play and it’s not how that works. MLB has the longest season of all 4 sports and you never heard about jeter sitting because he was “tired” unless you’re hurt you play everyday. Period!

    77. kwame nyame

      Why does he not just play less minutes instead of sitting out games

      1. James Avent

        Stats will go down

    78. NSTH tv

      It's cuz the nba has guaranteed money. Nfl no play no pay

    79. dsteele2332

      PREACH CHRIS..SAME 82 GAMES SAME 94 FOOT COURT SAME 10 FOOT RIM LOL DAMN

    80. chitizzle

      Utah is getting the same disrespect the Raptors got last year, also Kawhi Just getting started with LM wait until PG is Healthy.
