Spurs have been doing this for awhile now, its essentially an article about the value of resting your stars. Spurs and Heat were equally effective during the regular season, the difference being that the Spurs can up the minutes of their best players in the post season, which if they could have done in the regular season without losing anything, would be the equevalent of adding another star player. Miami has another level it can reach too, but it has more to do with defensive intensity and overwhelming athleticism vs San Antonio's strategic lift.
