    I'd be pissed if I was a fan who forked out several hundred dollars for tickets to this game. Even more pissed if I had to fly or drive hundreds of miles after forking out several hundred dollars for tickets.

    Why should I care about you wasting more money than you can afford to watch a game? You want a rehab ticket to treat your obsession?

    I'm not a fan of any of those teams and didn't buy a ticket. And you probably shouldn't care even if I did.

    The NBA, however, should absolutely care if fans are spending ridiculous amounts of money and then only receiving a partial product.

    This isn't that hard to understand. Pop rests his players. The first time? No.
    Fans know it's a possibility and they know why he's doing it.
    Trust me, if fans stopped following the Spurs .. tuning in, buying tix, etc.. they would put an end to it. Being a fan is sometimes more than just being entertained.. it's about being INVESTED in WINNING. That's the culture the Spurs have bred and I bet their fans (by a vast majority) are A OK with it.

    Sterns gonna fine the Spurs for this?

    The NBA should be about winning 1st, entertainment 2nd.

    Pop obviously felt like this helps his team win in the long run.

    Retarded that the NBA gets up in arms about this but not about the Warriors obviously tanking last year.

    We were posting at the same time .. but yeah, I agree. I'll add this. The NBA is NOT fining for resting players, it's fining for Pop speaking out and making the NBA seem like the bad guy. If he had done it quietly .. no fine, guaranteed.

    That makes sense. They did similar things last year with no penalties.

    Yeah, we should be highly concerned for the people who can throw away $1000's per ticket without much regard but turn a cold shoulder to the "cheapskate" broke folks in the upper bowl who scraped pennies to take their families to their only game of the season.

    Those poor millionaires might have to go eat caviar to make up for not seeing injured Ginobili.

    The Heat fans who forked out hundreds of dollars, and drove for hours to get to the game, expected to see the Spurs best effort.

    Every team should be giving their best effort every single game.

    I'm sure the network that paid tens of millions to broadcast the game also expected to see the best effort.

    If people start expecting less than the best effort, prices start going down. Not good for the league.

    I was talking about the broke upper bowl folks attending their only game of the season. I doubt the people spending $1000s to sit courtside will be too upset. Half of them were probably gifted the tickets anyway and don't even follow the team.

    I'm sure those upper bowl tickets in Miami are pretty expensive, especially for a big game like this one.
