The Clippers have a complex plan for managing Kawhi Leonard‘s health. It’s so complicated, the NBA went out of its way to condone Leonard sitting for a game last month but also fined the Clippers for their description of why Leonard was sitting. Eventually, the league clarified its position on the term “load management.”
What’s the difference between the philosophies?

Clippers coach Doc Rivers:
It’s our philosophy. I don’t know what theirs are. I think theirs is whatever LeBron says it is.
Rivers is obviously joking. But there’s also some truth behind most jokes.
