Controversy in the NBA: the circus inside out on gentle cycle

In the NBA there is a false debate, because the Basketball Star Kawhi Leonard may from time to time suspend, in the case of the Los Angeles Clippers.

Not in rhythm? Against his old club Kawhi Leonard (R) is not met is not-as usual-photo: ap

Kawhi Leonard had his best day. Just two baskets of the game, the 28-Year-old many believe to be the best basketball player in the world, he also made nine turnovers. Because he defended but as strong as ever, and his team-mates better met, beat the Los Angeles Clippers, the Toronto Raptors, but then with 98:88.

Nevertheless, the montägliche encounter was more than just an ordinary NBA. First, Leonard won with his Clippers, of all things, against the club he had managed before with just five months to the NBA title. And secondly, he played at all.

Because you can't rely on these days. The LA Clippers and their Star have the unofficial agreement that Leonard should always be free to take care of himself. There is talk that the winger wants to just ride close to 60 of the 82 games of the regular season.

to be able to A strategy, which he was able to prevail in the last season in Toronto, in order to be optimally prepared and as rested and unharmed in the Playoffs to go. A strategy which lead to success and the title was rewarded, not least because had hurt the opponent in the final Golden State with Kevin Durant and Klay Thompson, two of the Stars during the final series.

at the Time, Leonard was still in the far Canada under the contract, outside of the spotlight. Nevertheless, there was a discussion whether one can expect the Fans to be a few Hundred dollars for an NBA game to spend, and then the biggest attraction is merely in the fancy suit on the bench watching. Meanwhile, Leonard is playing in Los Angeles, the second largest TV market in the United States, and accordingly the discussion of the so-called Load Management journey has taken. The many sports-talk shows barely know another matter.

No friend of this kind of Rotation of LeBron James, who many consider the best basketball player on the planet is: "If I'm hurt, then I don't play games. If not, then I play.“ The same opinion is also Giannis Antetokounmpo, many believe, he could soon be the best basketball player in the world: "I always want to play." And a certain Michael Jordan, many believe is the best player of all time and was also a celebrity because he won with 37.7 degree fever, a final game, was hosted by Leonard: "You get paid for 82 games."

Whether the ongoing discussion is concerned, it is now the League your reputation. She has recently sent a Memo to the clubs clarifying that Load Management may not be a violation of – as the official reason for the suspension of a game is to be invoked. In the headquarters of the entertainment operation, with an annual turnover of more than six billion euros, makes you think. Finally, Kawhi Leonard was missing, of all things, in two Games that are transmitted all over the country.

The discussion is on the other hand, is a bigot, because everyone who has ever seen a sincerely normal NBA game during the regular season, knows that The intensity is manageable, really is fought first in the Playoffs. Individual clubs operate already for a long time, various forms of Load Management: The top players have to play as few minutes as possible or put for non-existing injuries. Kawhi Leonard and Clippers don't give just so much trouble to disguise this tactic.
