The balance the NBA needs to maintain between keeping the profitable 82-game season, player health and the rest program that have become known as load management is complex but important for the overall state of the league.
So it should come as no surprise league commissioner Adam Silver had plenty to say about all of the above ahead of the 2023 All-Star Game in Salt Lake City, Utah. Among the things Silver mentioned to help the league produce a higher quality product for the fans was a minimum number of games played for certain annual awards. The officiating in the Boston Celtics-Los Angeles Lakers debacle also came up.
Appearing on ESPN’s “SportsCenter,” Silver broke down how he sees the future of the league with respect to resting players.
Take a look at the clip embedded above to hear what he had to say.
