It's been the hot topic in the NBA when Commissioner David Stern and the league fined the San Antonio Spurs $250,000 for sitting out Manu Ginobili, Tim Duncan, Tony Parker and Danny Green in the recent game versus the Miami Heat and sending them back to San Antonio.
Everyone has put in their opinions on the topic and now Celtics head coach and former Spur Doc Rivers weighed in on the league's actions. Needless to say he did not agree with the steps the NBA took.
i have run into a couple of guys on other boards who cant seem to let this go. they seem to feel stern was right, and believe it should have been worse. (mark cuban agrees with the comish also) their argument is that fans paid a lot of money to see the spurs play the heat in miami. now my argument is the only people who really have a legit complaint are the people who said to themselves while buying tickets "i cant wait to see the spurs, i love those guys" and the ones that say "i cant wait for miami to kick the crap out of the spurs, i hate those guys", in which case neither has a beef. the true fans who wanted to see them, are real fans and they should be happy pop is thinking of the future of the team and not "hey the fans in miami might like to see our guys", and the haters, well they have one more reason to hate on the spurs so they are hatefully happy.
@MVPTexas they all have thats the thing. stern got upset pop told the whole world the heat doesnt matter any more than any other team in the league, and stern couldn't stomach it.
