The NBA decided to fine the Los Angeles Clippers 50,000 dollars for sitting Kawhi Leonard. The NBA has started to try to rectify teams using "load management" as an excuse to rest their players.

Steve Koonin joined Dukes and Bell for his weekly segment. Koonin chimed in on the Clippers being fined.

"It's not a great look" Koonin said.

We shall see if the fines deter teams in the future from resting their players. It looks like the NBA is at least willing to switch up the schedule so teams won't have to do that.
