Comm. Sten was right in his anounement that the Spurs should be santioned for resting its 4 players. T think Anderson earned a more permanent stay with the team.
First, the Spurs din't fill up the roster to 15. 2nd, Joseph was assigned to the d-league. 3rd, Leonard and Jackson were sidelined. NOW, 4 of their mainstays are NOT playing vs. the Heat. Coach Pop finds it convenient not to play TD, TP, Manu and Green. What gives? The Spurs are robbing the paying public of their hard-earned money by this. There should be a rule against this antic. Unless, these 4 players are injured they MUST play. It SHOULD no be a matter of discretion whether they should play or not. Why, are the Heats not tired? Coach Pop, GM Buford and Mr. Holt this is unethical and immoral. These people SHOULD BE FINED as a lesson. Comm. Stern, pls. look closely into this!
@rtesoro440 Typical MORONIC statement rt..does rt stand for real twit? Heat werent tired because they had a LONG rest and played less games so far..Spurs had played ELEVEN away games and Heat had only played 14 TOTAL games.
The Big Three and Green will not be in miami for the game, good F U to the league offices for the messed up schedule.
