    TERRIBLE logic. This season is young and fans expect to see teams at full strength (injuries as an exception of course). Games at the END of the season are when you are supposed to rest your big names.

    I'm not saying I like Stern but don't bring up something this stupid trying to stir up some hate.

    There is no valid point in your argument. Winning game 18 gives you the same advantage as winning game 82

    Is that a rule or something?!?! Get real....

    If your team played 4 games in 5 days and you want to give your starters the night off for busting there butts so many nights in a row there is no fault on the coach or team for that... The league is to blame for terrible scheduling not the team resting there over worked players and looking out for there teams and core players best interests.

    It's not like they were on Miami's schedule anyway where they played 3 games in 12 days.

    and Bosh to the Heat to join Wade. That would've been awesome... I would've respected LeBron way more if he went there.
    Why have great rivals when you can join them and have none.... Lebron James where losing the spirit of competition happens!

    Or should the Spurs have saw the Heat were on the back end of it and rested their stars prior so you could have them against the defending champs on national television...I blame the Spurs.

    Also, of course it is not a rule don't be a smartass.

    Yes I get Stern was way out of line but the precedent has been set here and now. You could go back ALOT further and dig up examples where Stern should have fined coaches.

    Idiotic, a win is what they care about. Ask yourself if its easier to beat the Heat or whatever bum team they played before them. Why would you rest your players for the HARDER team? It was a no lose situation for Pop. Either his scrubs get blown out and its an understandable learning experience OR his 2nd unit makes a game out of it and gains that much more confidence. GENIUS

    The logic here was that is was a nationally televised game on TNT and , Stern indicated the lifeline of NBA basketball is the contract that the NBA has with National Tv.

    Stern knows better than to touch the HEAT. Sacred cows get preferred treatment.

    LOL the reason Pop rested his players against miami was to maximize his wins potential. Pop saw the schedule and knew the chance to lose against miami was higher then other games so he rested them that game instead resting them another game losing then playing miami and possibly losing again.

Since Stern thinks this is a fine-worthy offense, is he going to go back and retrospectively fine other teams that have done this?


    I was at the game against the celtics and all these people that are *****ing about the spurs didn't say **** last year

    national tv and it being the spurs only trip to miami is why they were fined but really because it was a nationally televised game
    All truth passes through three stages. First, it is ridiculed. Second, it is violently opposed. Third, it is accepted as being self-evident.
