What's funny is Stern had "no comment" regarding the way the schedule is set...

I would be absolutely shocked is any of these "sanctions" held up...

Totally BS in my opinion if they get fined. Your a commissioner. Stay out of coaches affairs!

But also don't get me wrong. If I had tickets to tonights game. And heard those players weren't playing. I would be really pissed off.

Re: San Antonio Spurs to Receive Sanctions for Resting Players

That was an "unacceptable decision" by Gregg Popovich?

So Stern values the ratings and money for one game more than he cares about the long-term benefit for the Spurs, which is probably why Popovich made this move to begin with.

SMH. Will be a great day when Stern retires.

It's a great idea. The Spurs will be there at the end. I see both sides. But I think Pop should rested them for the game before. Not a national televised game.

But Stern has no business in Pops coaching decisions

Re: San Antonio Spurs to Receive Sanctions for Resting Players

I don't see the point in fining them. If the reason he's being fined is because fans weren't happy and such, so what? What is fining the Spurs going to fix? Nothing.

Just let it go, let the man coach
