I am sure we can all agree on a million reasons why the NBA sucks; however, David Stern has provided yet another reason to hate the NBA...
Last night the Spurs sat 4 key players...3 starters and their 6th man. Popovich said he made the decision based on their schedule and felt it was in the best interest of his team...If you don't know the Spurs are as old as dirt and Pops was resting them for the long haul. He did the same thing last season towards the end. It was a road game so it is not like the home crowed got screwed out of seeing "their" guys play. David Stern came out and said "I apologize to all NBA fans," Stern said. "This was an unacceptable decision by the San Antonio Spurs and substantial sanctions will be forthcoming."
My question is why? The Spurs were up most of the game and were up 7 with a little more than 2 minutes to go before some late game heroics by the Heat. The Spurs didn't come out...roll over and concede the game. Is Stern sorry that the Spurs came out with their backups and nearly knocked off the beloved Heat and it shouldn't have happened?
EDITED: I do find it funny some of the things that are said in forums that would be considered just as offensive yet no one bats an eye...Oh well...I edited it.
