Floyd Mayweather is not a fan of NBA players doing load management for so many games every single year.
No sport has athletes that do it more than NBA players as it has become common practice for the league’s top stars. In an interview with YouTuber SportsIcon, Mayweather said that NBA players sitting out games while not injured is a troubling trend.
“They will play a couple games and take a couple games off,” Mayweather said. “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.”
NBA commissioner Adam Silver has created an updated policy on load management. The term is now simply known as “rest,” and prohibits teams from sitting out healthy players during nationally-televised games.
Floyd Mayweather has won fifteen major world championships from super featherweight to light middleweight. He has also won Best Fighter ESPY Award six times in his career apart from being named “Fighter of the Decade” for the 2010s by the Boxing Writers Association of America (BWAA).
