Resting is a real advantage.

Players mentalities vs coaching/management don't have to be on the same page.

If you're running a team and your goal is to win the championship - you'd be a fool not take advantage of resting your players when it's necessary.

don't know why anyone is propping Garden up for making this comment. literally plays on ONE side of the floor. doesn't care about his man scoring, doesn't rotate, doesn't pick up other people's men literally NOTHING on the defensive end. add that to the fact the he plays basketball to play basketball, he's playing merely for stats, have spus warriors are playing to win CHAMPIONSHIPS therefore it makes sense to rest their players SOMETIMES. harden and Westbrook etc know damn well they aren't getting past the 1st/2nd rounds so of course they'll play every game....plus when you getting the kinda foul calls that Harden gets, it hard to be fatigue when it steadily resting at the foul line.

Kobe and Jordan never took rest days off.. Technically Kobe rested after achilles injury but that doesn't count, His body/career was pretty much done.
Jordan took years off at the same age Lebron was playing 82 game seasons, Jordan was playing 30+ in college. Not to mention missing almost another whole season because of an injury.

Kobe came in out of high school like Lebron but didn't start for his first two seasons while Lebron was logging heavy minutes as the number 1 on his team. Kobe didn't have that load for nearly 7 seasons...


Neither one of them had this many deep playoff runs in a row either....

I never directed this at LeBron but I guess he falls into the category of players so I could see why you brought him up but he wasn't even on my mind. Anyway, ok I understand Jordan didn't play nearly as many seasons as LeBron but I can guarantee you that if he did he still wouldn't have sat out just to rest. It's just the mentality.

Kobe in his 17 seasons not once sat to rest (I don't count post-achilles injury). Sure he didn't play nearly as much his rookie year and less than LeBron his second year so we'll just compare Kobe's 17 seasons vs Lebron's 14. There you have it.

Like I said, it's just the mentality difference. What the Warriors did especially is just straight disrespectful to the fans.

Well they also know they aint gonna be in the ship anyway

They dont got the luxury of doing that

If houston doesnt score alot of points its a wrap for them

they dont play defense
Who keeps telling you guys we don't play defense?


Gonna say this one more time: Teams like the Lakers and Nuggets don't play defense. We've been top 10 since November. We are an averaged defense and are ranked as such and have proven to be capable of playing elite defense. The idea that the Rockets don't play defense is some stupid rhetoric made up by people who only watch James Harden vines last year and don't watch the Rockets now and prejudge Mike Dantoni.

He doesn't play one side of the floor and arguing otherwise means you don't watch the Rockets play.

Or was that greg poppovich that forced kawhi to sit down

To be fair, I've seen Ty Lue say he's making Lebron rest.

Stop the silliness....the games in the west are not tasking, they play west coast ball of running around and moving the ball..the teams are just better but the wear and tear there doesnt compare to the east where they have to grind most games out because of lesser talent. West is flair. Run and gun unless you get Memphis...but East is mostly grind out attrition games...

Harden cant rest until he consistently plays through may/june.

LOL at wear and tear in the west!!

Cavs most physical games last year playoffs were against Detroit..regardless of the fact that the series ended in a sweep!
Physicality isn't the only form of taxation on a teams/players body. Look at the Cavs against the western conference 8th seed Nuggets. They got taxed in win column.

But you still won't get it

harden playing so much during the regular season is the biggest reason why he suffers minor injuries during the post season.
