Boxing legend Floyd Mayweather is not a fan of the “load management” phenomena that has taken over the NBA.

For the past few years, players like Kawhi Leonard have decided to play fewer regular-season games to stay fresh and injury-free during the playoffs.

During a recent Q&A Mayweather blasted players who took games off to rest because he felt they were ripping off fans who paid a lot of money to watch NBA players entertain them.


“They will play a couple games and take a couple games off,” “That’s not cool. With that type of money, if you’re not hurt, you need to be out there playing ’cause these people pay a lot of money for the NBA players to entertain.”

Mayweather’s comments received mixed reactions from NBA Twitter with some people agreeing with him and others ripping him for his opinion on load management.
