    Will the Heat be fined $500 000?

    As we all know the Spurs have been fined $250 000 for not playing the big three. My question is this: Will the Heat also be fined for doing the same thing? The last two games of the season last year the Heat benched LBJ, Wade and Bosh. 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 doubt he'll do it late in the year just because there usually isn't much to play for, I think he fined the Spurs because there's alot to play for and it brings the quality of the games down much more if they continue to do this.

    Stern explicitly stated in his declaration that this offense took in a variety of factors including early in the season and that this was the Spurs only trip to Miami this year.

    Would you all grow up and get off Stern's azz?

    I agree, Stern gets too much undeserved crap.

    hahaha good logic. that is common practice at the end of the season. fans know that its a possibility then and it's obvious when you look at the teams record that they might be doing it down the stretch. the heat just went through there 4 games in 5 nights stretch and didn't bench anyone besides wade missing some time with injury. and they actually won that last game in denver. i don't agree with what stern did, but i can see why. pop tried to give the league the finger for the schedule by sending his players home, they should at least be with the team. and nobody was hurt at all. also i think it angered tnt an nba partner that he'd do it for the national tv game with a marquee matchup on the spurs only visit to south beach, instead of during one of the other games against weaker teams. pop said it wasn't about the heat but it was, he calculated who he thought they'd beat and chose to take the heat game as a chance to rest.

    You should have quit 39 posts ago if this is the lame kind of stuff you're going to come up with. It's his job to protect the product the league puts out there in front of fans and on networks.

    Sitting players is not the same as sending them home on a plane before the game.

    It cheats fans.

    Like it or not, this has become a superstar league and that is why we have Thursday Night Doubleheaders (the expanded popularity of marketable "superstars). Additionally, Stern said (and I would agree with) that the Spurs did not give proper notification to the Heat organization, the network, or the fans.

    Why is this even another thread? We already have the original Spurs thread and everything that is said here or there applies the same.

    So you would have felt better if you could have looked at Tim Duncan in street clothes? Not sure that would affect the ratings all that much big guy.
