This is nothing more than a move by David Stern to flex his muscles, because of the perceived notion that somehow what Pop did, would cause the league to lose money. I hope the league has an entity (other than the commissioner himself) that reviews these "sanctions" and determines whether or not it should be overturned. It would be different if Stern warned Pop and the Spurs that what they did was wrong and any similar actions in the future would result in fines or suspensions. Stern did no such thing. Instead, he turned a blind eye to it until the Spurs played the Miami Heat. Is it a coincidence that Stern gets upset when the Spurs did this against the Miami Heat? I don't think so. Stern cannot retire soon enough. I will help his a$$ pack.
