    Last week, there was no poll. I add a poll to this thread.

    I think it is impossible to win the regular season while embracing load management because of Nuggets and Clippers have much better depth.
    Everyone says Clippers have the best bench. I think Nuggets have better bench than Clippers. Both teams can go 10 man deep team along with 1 star in the regular season. They are likely to be top 2 seeds in the regular season and end up easy schedule in the playoffs (avoid first round against GS and Lakers).

    Nuggets
    Michael Porter Jr
    Malik Beasley
    Will Barton
    Mason Plumlee
    Monte Morris
    Jerami Grant

    Clippers
    Louis Williams
    Montrezl Harrell
    Jerome RobinsonL
    Maurice Harkless
    Rodney McGruder
    Landry Shamet

    The biggest misconceptions around load management is that it means athletes playing fewer minutes.

    Load management can be minutes reduction without missing games.

    Daryl Morey must take some games off also. He, too, is aging.

    Under Tilman's reign, Morey already takes off draft night, most of the offseason, and the trade deadline as well.

    What else is there left to do? File Tilman's taxes in April?

    It comes down to whether we rest our key personnel in blow outs and against lower caliber teams... or if guys are permitted to work their stats while MDA works his precious efficiency numbers...

    No way either player will sit out if they're not broken. As if MDA will limit minutes.

    BigDum needs a thread management plan.

    If Clutch hadn't become Fat Thor, he would've brought down the ban hammer on this fool long ago. :D

    “Shut up and listen Daryl, I don’t pay you to rest. There are no sick days buddy, that’s what Skype is for fat boy. So take a few oxy and get your ass up. Turn on the Landry’s issued baby monitor so I can check that you are working.” - Tillman

    I support the load management plan where we constantly blow teams out and our starters get to rest during the 4th quarter.

    I'd like them to play 32mpg instead of 36mpg

    over 82 games that's like having 10 games off.

    Harden isn't the same in the playoffs. Not sure if jts fatigue or mental but might as well see if its fatigue. So I like the plan

    That’s nothing. There’s wear and tear for the 12th man. Everybody works out and shoots around from morning to tip off on game days.

    If they rest Chuckbrook then the rationale for trading Chris Paul doesn’t exist.

    James Harden has asthma issues, it just looks taxing that he plays 42 minutes in the playoffs.
    With no All Star talent for years, Chris Paul showed flashes, but not for 82 games, playing next to Harden.

    Russell Westbrook really is the epitome of High Minutes. Playing next to Harden taking the scoring load , heavy minutes off of each other will be huge.

    Can Chris Clemons, Eric Gordon, Danuel House, P.J. Tucker, Anthony Bennett, Gerald Green Score with Mike DAntoni.

    Can Mike DAntoni coach, for years he really hasn't, this new coaching staff, better have some IQ on Xs and Os.
    The Defensive Coaches better step up.

    The last coaching staff was horrendous with Roy Rogers coaching defense, started off 10-13, until Bzdelik came back and rescued the team.

    already expected the rockets to limit the older guys on this team this year. why wouldn't you for guys pushing 30 and up. and morey confirmed it. for a board that always calls for rest and limiting players there sure are a lot of guys not happy about it.
