The NBA has a regular season problem
Kawhi Leonard leading the Raptors to a title was an all time NBA storyline, but it also validated their strategy of regularly letting Kawhi sit out games in the name of load management. The NBA regular season has always lacked urgency, but last night Leonard was a healthy scratch on a national TV game in Utah, and we’re only two weeks into the season.
From a player standpoint, load management is smart, but the more it becomes the norm it’s really bad for the NBA’s business. When the “face of the league” is taking a personal day during a national broadcast, it’s a terrible look and sends the message the NBA doesn’t even care about the regular season.
