As you can see over the past few months, there has been a rising concern that all star caliber players are being rested by their coaches, so that players can stay healthy to play the entire season while avoiding serious injuries over the course of the long NBA season.
The NBA schedule can be tough on a NBA player. I mean look at the players, these men are huge. And if those gigantic beasts are pushed day in and day out, their bodies can be proned to aches and pains, which can lead to surgeries, and even more time off.
So what do they do now? You have the fans, of say Lebron James, who might live in Washington, and will save money to be able to see their favorite players in their hometown, and if they sit out because they are constantly playing back to back road games, and traveling while being in pain, while the fan feels betrayed for not seeing who they mesmerize for hours on the TV.
Everyone is not happy right now. If the best players are not on the floor, the ratings will go down. I think the NBA should push their franchises to posting their active players, who they are going to play in the game on that day early in advance, so if you are a fan and see your favorite player is playing in your city, then the fan would know whether or not the team is going 110% that game, not recovering from a long road trip.
The MLB and NFL have had somesort of roster set ups in advance to the games. These players need rest, because it is a long season, and a player must be ready to compete to possibly June if you are a member of a title contending team.
The fans want quality, but the amount of time the players have to rest, it’s almost impossible for that to exist. So the NBA Has to do some serious marketing reconstruction in order to keep the fans and players happy. As for everything in life, we should be focused on quality over quantity. No matter what.
