    Jackie isn’t often wrong but load management is important for the NBA. For one, it allows the bench to develop and the others to gain confidence and competence and it bolsters the superstars and builds the team. The championship matters more than the regular season and if the supporting cast can get you to 58 wins in the regular season...it makes sense. It also builds flexibility and team. I for one am more than happy to see the depth and the others get a chip

              Nobody expects Kawhi to be in the MVP talk.... we here in Toronto don't care, and this chick here is being insincere with her comments.

                hahahahaaaaaa all of a sudden ESPN cares about fans not seeing Kawhi. What a crock of shit, these losers will only do what they can to shit on the Raptors, its always been this way.

                  I like Ramona but what she don't get? The man wanted to feel healthy. No matter what you think his health was, he wanted to come back 100 % and not be an injury threat like a Joel, Kevin love, or even a Steph. Now look at what he's doing. Clearly he made the right choice.

                      Yup, the regular season is the time to work out player combinations and situational plays. With Kawit only playing about half the games he fu**ed his team’s chemistry up which they are seeing now in the playoffs. Look at the games Lowry and him didn’t play together, they played better without each other. They never worked out how to both be on the floor. So much for rest, he can rest with the Clippers now. Who cares if Kawit get’s 40 when his team loses? He doesn’t make players around him better

                        I dont have a problem with it. Yall always saying the reg season doesnt matter. Plus they were winning without him. Shorten the reg season. 60 or so games is enough tbh

                                    what's hilarious is they'll say kawhi was rested too much this year, but a week or two ago they were talking about how philly should've rested embiid more the first half of the season. can't pay attention to jackie's thoughts on much of anything basketball, remember when she was saying tatum was the best celtic?

                                        SIxers are just more talented than Toronto and if the raptors bench continue to contribute nothing in the series, they will get beat. So far Philly's bench has been playing equal or better than Toronto and that is a disaster for the Raptors who have counted on their stronger bench players all year long.

                                            It’s got nothing to do with kwahi resting, the other players who are cashing all these huge checks need to show up. Also Masai made a huge blunder trading away JV. Gasol is past his prime

                                              Toronto is lucky Kawhi didn’t fly off to NY for a mysterious injury and quit on the team after being cleared to play

They lose one game and suddenly its an issue. Another example of ESPN's bias toward anyone critical of Lebron James or Gregg Popovich.
