Former NBA player Eddie Johnson took to Twitter and criticized the players that miss games due to load management.

“I am watching all these old @Nba games on @NBATV and @espn and I know how current players must feel not being able to play the game they love. I want them to remember this in regards to Load Management and sitting out games they could have played! Never take it for granted!” Johnson tweeted.

Many of the top NBA teams use load management in order to rest their players and keep them in top shape for the playoffs.
