Fined $250,000 for Resting Players?

4 years ago

To be honest I`ve never been a big fan of NBA Commissioner David Stern. But this move to fine the San Antonio Spurs $250,000 just for resting their star players is ridiculous. The Spurs were playing their 4th game in 5th nights. A lot of their star players like Tony Parker and Tim Duncan are not young chickens anymore and thus prone to fatigue and injuries. So their coach decided to send 4 of their best player home for the final trip so they can prepare against their Division rival and current top team Memphis Grizzlies. Stern argues that the fans paid to see the stars in the game. To me it`s a weak argument. Yeah if I paid for a Miami game I would love to see their stars in action. But if the coach has a good reason for keeping the players out of the game, then so be it.

Talk the TALK
1) Do you think the fine was Excessive?
2) Have you been to a NBA game this season?
