What’s the ‘real’ game plan around resting players on regular nights? This hot topic has been circling around the NBA recently and we saw it in action last night when the Cavs rested their big three for the greater good against the Grizzlies.
To the fans, it’s certainly a letdown to find out superstar players are resting on your game time. To the team, it’s a necessary strategy if they’re a playoffs contender. To the NBA, it’s a business problem. Cavaliers coach Tyronn Lue summed up the situation quite well for his post match interview.
To rest or not… It’s a controversial 50/50 decision, but the Cavs and LeBron certainly believe in it.
Catch you Monday.
