There will be an active thread in about two hours, FYI. But yes, it's weird.

Stern is a joke. Apparently coaches are not allowed to make decisions with the best interests of their team in mind anymore. 

Would he still have fined the Spurs if they had won the game?

Yes. It's about shafting the fans who paid for their tickets. Stern's right in this case.

It was a road game for the Spurs, the Heat should be able to fill the seats with happy fans regardless of the opponent because they have top talent and just won a championship.

Right ir wrong he could have made a phone call about it instead of speaking with the media before the game.

He was protesting 4 in 5 days. Thursday was the Heats first of two games this week.

So a coach is no longer allowed to rest players ever? If someone is injured, they should still play so the fans are happy?

There is a difference between resting players who are injured, or just resting a player, and resting 80% of your starting lineup, none of whom are injured. Pretending otherwise makes you a joke.

The Spurs were deliberately tanking a game. That they clearly could have won. They were actively taking actions to prevent themselves from winning. That's bad for the league. They should be punished. The only legitimate question is what the punishment should be.

They led the game for 47 minutes. The only reason this is an issue is because it was a TNT game. I look forward to all the fines that get handed out at the end o the season.

Tanking a game to rest players ==bad

Tanking games to get lottery picks == good

Tanking games to get franchised moved = great


DIAF Stern


Spurs should repeat this move again, except sit one guy at inbound line and the rest on sideline.
Let opponent score 500-800 points. Will be a ratings extravaganza

Pretty sure the tickets say Heat vs Spurs, and not Heat vs Tim Duncan.

Should the Nationals have been fined for sitting Steven Strasburg at the end of the season?

I think this is the reason Stern felt he had to "do something." It was the big nationally televised game of the night. Nobody would have cared if they pulled against the Wizards. Hell, nobody gives a shiat when they do it in baseball. Also, the second part of your comment is going to be an interesting thing to see. If this is going to be a precedent (which honestly I don't think it will and it will be quickly glossed over by the NBA, this is just a knee jerk reaction to Pop's move) what happens at the end of the season come April. Every year, there's teams that locks up their playoff positioning with a few games left in the season. Should the coach not have the ability to make a personnel move and rest his starters, even if they don't technically have an injury?

Just look at the job his protege has done with the NHL....

David Stern is a moron.

Pop could have easily resolved the whole thing by announcing his decision back in July when he said he made it. Sending them home on a commercial plane the day before the game looks like he was just trying to say F-U to the league by sitting a bunch of stars before a nationally televised game against the Champions. And a man in Stern's position can't afford to be made to look ridiculous.

I think whole sale resting your guys is bad for the league...less people will buy tickets and watch on TV if there's a chance it will the second string playing. But the league obviously F'ed up scheduling that made them play so many games in a row on the road.

The solution is some sort of deadline by which the coach has got to inform the league he's resting guys, combined with the league not doing dumb schedules that have them playing 4 games in 5 nights. Problem solved.

Because you can't really stop them from doing this. If I was Pop, the next time I wanted to rest guys they'd all have ankle sprains or stomach flus and be unable to play. So put a procedure in place that dictates when you have to announce the intention to not play people, and suck up the lower ratings and less attendance.

4 of those blocks came on one play, but otherwise a very impressive performance.

Remember when David Stern said the Olympics should only be for 23 and under players? One of the reasons for that was so the aging veterans of the league wouldn't get themselves injured and tired for the season. So just in case anybody is wondering, this is really only about money.

"Triple double no assist" is a line in a Kanye song.

As for the Spurs fine...it's like the 4 major sports commissioners are having an ongoing competition to see who can suck the worst. It's crazy, but Bud Selig might actually be the best of the bunch right now.
