    Just announced on Inside the NBA. Stern is pissed about the Pop lineup change. Wow.

    Pop should be able to do whats best for his team. stern shouldnt be allowed to dish out fines just because he gets angry phone calls from advertisers who paid big bucks for the Heat/Spurs game.

    this is professional sports, there are risks and there are no sure things- that goes for everyone involved, in any capacity.

    I hope the tickets for the game were cheaper because of this.. which I doubt since it was last minute, right? In that case, good. I'd be pretty pissed if I was attending the game.

    Exactly. Its just plain corruption for him to do that

    Thats a really good thing. I mean people paid a lot of money to see their favourite players and this is what they get? This makes a bad reputation on the league and Stern himself.

    Put this in the GT but Stern is a clown. Teams do this at the end of the year too after a playoff seed has been wrapped up, I want to see what he does then. Just cause it's a nationally televised game. Had they rested them last night, he'd have no issue. He can't have it both ways, it's Pop's team to do what he wants. His job is to put his team in position to win in the big picture, not bring in ratings.

    Also, guess it means more Joey Crawford for Spurs playoff games.

    Out of left field, very interesting call from Pop.

    That said, Stern angrily wagging his finger saying "YOU CANT DO THAT" is more ridiculous.

    I don't know why Pop didn't rest his guys against Orlando and get them rested for tonight. That would make more sense.

    This. If you are paying a lot of money to watch two good teams play, you should be able to see every player play. Fans are paying for the players and coaches.

    So close to Stern retiring... Yet so far.

    Andrew Luck, Robert Griffin III, and Colin Kaepernick walk into a bar... To watch Russell Wilson win the Super Bowl.

    Its the first month of the season... I would be worried if you really had to rest 3/5 starters in the first month
