The Herd with Colin Cowherd




  • What should the NBA do about load management?

    • @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

    • 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.

    • @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.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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?

  • 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

Fans should be outraged.. paying 400 dollars for a ticket and not seeing top all stars playing in games because of load management?/!!

  • 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

  • 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

  • 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"

  • 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.
