Could you imagine being this person? Read the title. Then go read it again. Yes, that isn’t a typo. A huge NBA fan decided to pay $7,000 for tickets to the Lakers and Bucks game and well you know how NBA players are “resting” and 99.9% of the time for no reason? Well this is why they shouldn’t be allowed to.
When this super-NBA fan saw there was a late season match-up between Los Angeles Lakers and Milwaukee Bucks he had to be there, courtside.
Unfortunately for the fan both LeBron James and Giannis Antetokounmpo the two players he/she was most looking forward to didn’t play. Why didn’t they play? Because of “rest”. They need to find these fans and get them tickets to another game.
$6,970.50: What a fan paid on StubHub, including fees, for two courtside seats tonight for Lakers at Bucks. Both LeBron & Giannis are not playing. 🤷♂️— Darren Rovell (@darrenrovell) March 19, 2019
What can the NBA do to fix this? Force players to play?
Or should players just have the integrity to play? I mean, I get players deserve rest, but it seem’s pretty weak to do it on a road game.. I mean it seems pretty weak to me to do it at all. Right? Let me know in the comments. I feel bad for the fan. But if you have $7,000 to spend on a game, then I don’t feel too bad.
What does Kobe Bryant think about players resting? “The only time I took a game off is when I couldn’t walk”
