2699296, Load management: The phenomenon
Posted by c71, Fri Jun-14-19 07:55 PM
Yep, I'm sort of not sure about this but....

Kawhi responded to physical problems with the Spurs with a demand for "load management", Kawhi got load management from the Raptors, that worked (won the finals)....

So.....


Will most top players demand load management too...in light of Kawhi being proved "right"?


The more I listen to the sports commentators, they keep attributing seeming ALL injuries (Lebron, KD) to stars being "overplayed" seeming week after week, so.....

and....

Is there any way the GM's, coaches, can stop top players from getting "load management" now?
2699299, the Spurs already do load management

LeBron's done it for years.

Golden State was already doing it.

not to the extent that kawhi did, but kawhi has had problems with tendinitis that cut short his *rookie season*

2699300, If Kawhi's load management has an extent that is "extra"
Posted by c71, Fri Jun-14-19 08:09 PM
is the Spurs, Lebron's and Golden State's "load management" barely.....anything.....when compared to Kawhi's "load management"?


Sort of like my studying in Law School compared to those who actually completed law school...do I deserve to even compare my amount of "studying" to theirs?
2699306, I'm going to sound crazy, but different people need different things.

how many stars like KD and Lebron keep getting put in game after game for 40+ minutes....


that sounds very different than what Kawhi just got with his load management


so.....


Different people may need different things but....Kawhi just got a title with his thing...so....it would be pretty strange if no other top player would not be "influenced" by that kind of success.


yep
2699311, I hear you, don't disagree

Kawhi's control over his body hopefully changes how
athletes treat their bodies

The key reason Kawhi's situation so big is that he
had an open conflict with his team over his injury.
his team openly said he lied

But I think Lebron James is really the modern
basketball player who set the trend on this. This is part
of why those 8 Finals in a row is so legendary: it is
incredibly hard to play that late into the year every year


2699322, Kawhi has put another step in the revolution of players controlling

their destiny. Players having much more control over their bodies and health. It's such a good thing to watch.

LeBron is still the pioneer of it all, but Kawhi putting another step to it is definitely refreshing.
