    Stern is not happy. Even made an apology before the game.
    I'm really starting to loath David Stern and his NBA visions in an unhealthy way. The only thing this guy cares about is short and medium term bottom line. He manages the rules based on point totals & doesn't give a rip about talent disparity. Look at the success of the NFL because they actually care about player health, adjust rules according to common sense instead of outcome, and foster a competitive environment. There are good reasons why the NFL leads US sports in revenue, growth, and profit.

    Stern and the NBA need to take a hint before time runs out on their short sited visions. The NBA may be growing now but they will face the effects of alienating fans sooner or later. I am no longer an NBA fan, only a fan of the Jazz. I know plenty of people who are Jazz fans but refuse to set themselves up for disappointment yet again so they seldom watch Jazz games anymore. It's sad how Stern has taken a good thing and ruined it.

    And David Stern, you are a loathsome piece of **** for disregarding player health.

    I can't believe that anybody would side with San Antonio/Pop on this one. It must be horrible for the millionaires on his team to have a 6 and 10 day road trip in 1 month. Nevermind the millions of Americans who work 40+ hour work weeks for far less money. If his team is too old to give NBA ticket payers their money's worth, maybe they need to make some changes to their roster.

    I'm not fan of Stern, but I hope he puts the screws to them.
    That seems a little bit drastic don't you think?

    Pop is there for one reason. To win championships. I think he knows what will benefit his team more than we do. Also why was there no outrage when he did this 3 times last year?

    I totally understand Pop's reasoning here. And Pop coming to coach here would be like us landing Lebron James or drafting a 20 year old Malone clone.

    However, I don't think it's good for the league, good for TV watchers, and especially a raw deal for those who actually paid to attend.

    I just don't like it.

    If athletes think it's too hard or that they're being used "too much" or aren't being "fairly compensated" for being our "gladiators" then they could always try their hand at a real job.

    BTW it's hilarious to read/hear some people compare modern day sports to gladiators (heard it on the radio a few days ago and now i'm reading it here). I'm pretty sure people who draw those comparisons have never ever EVER actually studied Roman history. Does anyone even know who the gladiators were and how they were employed or compensated?

    I really don't care. The Spurs aren't winning anything this year anyway.

    They might beat us in round 1.
    Gobert has a serious defensive gravity.

    And yet they'd still sweep us.

    The Spurs are our daddy.

    The Spurs just decided to tank a game.
    Spurs led the game late into the 4th quarter.

    How do you side with the NBA scheduling 6 road games in 8 nights? They expect teams to be at peak performance with a grind like that?

    I get upset every time a coach brings a sub into a game: all of a sudden the "best product" is no longer on the court. If these players think its too hard to play 48 minutes per game, perhaps they ought to try their hand at a real job.

    Why are the complainers, complaining?

    Last night's game was really entertaining. Spurs damn near beat the Heat. The Heat needed a big 3 from Ray Allen just to win.

    Would anyone here be mad if Ty sat 3-4 of our starters, and we got to see the guys at the end of the bench get more minutes, namely our young guys? It would probably help our bench get some much needed experience and reps. Well, San Antonio has a bench too. Maybe Pop thought about this as having many different layers. He gets to rest his big guns because they are old AND teach his bench guys a few things.

    Pop should be able to go about it his way. Its his team. He shouldnt have to stick to the script.

    Someone coaches treat winning as a science, others dont have a clue what the hell they are doing.

    So if your boss told you "you've been working you overtime lately and doing an excellent job take a day off" you wouldn't do it?
