Whats the rear tire movment supposed to feel like?

I got the bike up on the rear stand last night to take the tire off for a tire change. when i would rotate the tire by hand it was hard to move and sticking. it wouldnt spin freely and would stick and pop when I would rotate. should you be able to spin it and it do a few rotations by itself under momentum? worried that my hub bearings are toasted.

it should be fairly tight, but not hard to rotate. It won't spin freely or do mass rotations under its own inertia.
There shouldn't be any popping, how does the chain look? is it catching and causing the pop ? I'd check the rollers on the chain first.

Does the wheel itself have any side movement or wiggle any? that would be bad bearings.

Maybe someone with better knowledge will chime in. A few members have had their bearings go out on them..... they'd know best

If at first you don't succeed, use a hammer instead

what do you mean the rollers? the pivot points on the chain? I know that members have lost the bearings but i never heard anyone discuss wheel stiction regarding their hub bearings. I probably could clean the chain but its well lubed. chain looks to be in fine shape with little to no wear on the sprockets.

Calm down Mate

First tell us what stand ya using.
If it is the old standard MV issue one, it won't spin for shit mate.
Just pushing the bike down the road will tell ya if bearings have moved on.
Check the silly stand first, then the chain, then the back brake....and then.

Invest in a pitbull rear stand. Worlds better than the MV stand.
