LeBron James is not happy about the NBA and how much time off they give players. He is not contributing their busy schedule to so many mounting injuries.
Kyrie Irving and Kawhi Leonard recently got bad news that they are sidelined. There is no guarantee that any player will make it through the season, and this one has been heavy on injuries for the NBA.
King James unleashed multiple tweets about the current state of things. He made it clear that the injuries are due to not getting the proper time off to rest between games. He also wasn’t at 100% throughout a majority of the season leading into the NBA Playoffs.
They all didn’t wanna listen to me about the start of the season. I knew exactly what would happen. I only wanted to protect the well being of the players which ultimately is the PRODUCT & BENEFIT of OUR GAME! These injuries isn’t just “PART OF THE GAME”. It’s the lack of PURE
RIM REST rest before starting back up. 8, possibly 9 ALL-STARS has missed Playoff games(most in league history). This is the best time of the year for our league and fans but missing a ton of our fav players. It’s insane. If there’s one person that know about the body and how it
works all year round it’s ME! I speak for the health of all our players and I hate to see this many injuries this time of the year. Sorry fans wish you guys were seeing all your fav guys right now.
LeBron James has a reason to be upset right now. His LA Lakers lost in the first round to the Phoenix Suns, and the NBA Playoffs were over for them from there. Now there is heavy talk about restructuring the Lake Show for next season. Some are even calling for LeBron to take a pay cut to help things out.
We’ll have to see if the NBA takes LeBron James’ words to heart, but they have made alterations before if enough voices get behind an idea.
What’s your take on this situation? Sound the NBA give players more time to rest? Sound off in the comments!
