    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.
    Such a liberal. Holy hell.

    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.
    Oh so now you're looking down your nose at "broke" people who can only drive hundreds of miles and spend hundreds of dollars per ticket. I guess we're supposed to fly private class from Los angeles before we're considered first class citizens by you.

    Are you talking down to a genius? That's dangerous. You should always seek enlightenment and knowledge.. who better than those that are intellectually superior, obviously?

    Jesus, you're short-sighted. Let me tell you something. If Pops kept his starters out there for 35 minutes a night for their careers like many teams do, these guys may have already retired, and the Spurs as a whole would be much, much ****tier, thus making their value and worth to the NBA much, much less.

    But besides that point, any fans who expect anything are douches. It's not their team. They don't look out for the best interests of the players and therefore of the team like Pops does. But maybe he should just listen to Salty, play them 35 minutes a night for the fans, let them get injured in the process, and be one and done in the playoffs, thus ****ing the fans infinitely more pissed off. Or should they just play through injuries too for the fans? Ya know, because they paid some money.

    Get over it. We're entitled to nothing. **** happens. Injuries. Births. Deaths in the family. Guys miss games and this is an anomaly, not a trend.

    Its real sad when millionaires see healthy young men as lowly sport for their spectator feast. Has this country really degraded to Rome status this fast? Who cares about the health of citizens as long as the front row gets their entertainment...

    In all seriousness, I am curious.. have you ever made yourself a student of the Roman Empire? I only ask because I did and I named my company (one that I sold in '05) after that era. I collected Roman Empire era artifacts that were awesome. I became fascinated with that time period.

    (That was probably weird, so ..)

    I love Pop. Dude is an awesome coach. I love that he has the stones to do thing his way, instead of being worried about what people think. I would love to have him as our coach.

    I love Pop.

    But I'm not a big fan of this.
