Rose’s Injury

We touched on Derrick Rose’s injury in a previous post; Wilbon in his role as Chicago apologist piles onto the NBA as he calls their schedule “overaggressive.”

Really, now?

Yeah, their schedule was overaggressive. That does not mean you have to play players in every single game! Did we mention San Antonio’s scheduling put them in the position of sitting  certain players for games? Did we also mention the Spurs won 50 games this season? Did we mention the Spurs big guns are ready for the playoffs and healthy for once?It’s no certainty those guys are going to make it through the entire postseason, but they appear to be in better shape than the big contenders.

Hey, the schedule was bad. No question about it. The thing was, teams were unwilling to sit players for their own good. Some players refused to sit. Now we’re seeing guys like Kobe, Rose, and Dwight Howard falling by the wayside. Sometimes, the work of a coach is to manage his players minutes. Just because a team has young guys doesn’t mean they can play them without caring about how much they are playing.

About bittersportspills

I love sports. I don't love the hype, homerism, ratings talk, self-important egomaniacs, bias or any of the other nonsense you get with the national media. Nor will you get the two clowns on sports talk radio who stage phony arguments. It doesn't make it entertaining. It makes it time to turn on your iPod and jam instead of listening to white noise generators. This is the sports blog for you, the ones who don't like everything Los Angeles or New York. Just because the sporting media is based there doesn't mean we have to like their teams. We do treat them fairly, though. That means if one of those cities has an average QB who plays particularly well...we'll note it. If they're garbage, we'll say so. Instead of crying "why, why, why" like a certain sports media homer did in his radio broadcast. This isn't my job...I have a real one. Nevertheless, I'll post here when I make an observation. Common sense in sports is nearly dead. Now we're attempting to bring it back.
