There has been a lot of chatter about NBA players sitting out games. Kawhi Leonard is the latest violator, as we are only one week in to the season and him being out is labeled as "load management".  

Steve Koonin joined Dukes and Bell to give his thoughts on the subject. The concern comes in when you have fans paying to see guys like Leonard, and them not being on the floor.  

"I don't think it is ideal, by any means" Koonin said.

The NBA has tried to do their due diligence by making changes to the schedule.

Even though they have to be concerned about players health, they also have to be concerned about butts being in the seats.
