Should the NBA reduce the season to 72 games? Warriors' Steve Kerr thinks so


After the Boston Celtics got the better of the Golden State Warriors in the two teams' last meeting at TD Garden in January, the next night, the Warriors decided to rest much of their best players in a tilt with the Cleveland Cavaliers. This irked fans who came to see the Dubs in action as much as it did analysts unhappy with the practice of load managing star players in the NBA today.

Asked about the practice, and how it might be avoided or at least diminished in the future, Golden State head coach Steve Kerr said what a lot of people have suggested in a similar form: by reducing the number of games played by each team every season.

For Kerr, the magic number was 72, knocking 10 games off of the top of the current, 82-game season.
