Some bs. I expect the union to fight it

David Stern is a freaking BOZO !!! I think if the other team owners side with the Spurs, I feel they should step forward and demand Stern's immediate resignation. This clown is out of control.

nbahoops21 11-30-12 06:33 PM

like i said on Facebook....
Look for Stern to send henchmen refs ...making some lousy calls against us!!!!

:banghead

And on a side note Joey Crawford has been scheduled to ref the next 20 games the Spurs play

@WojYahooNBA

Front office executive just texted on Spurs: "Watch, Joey Crawford will do the Memphis game now."

Lakers will be fined for having players not show up despite physically playing in the games.

it involves the players. if Stern is going to dictate who a coach has to play, then it'll effect them especially if a player is truly fatigued. either that or more "injuries" will arise.

Holt may fight it since he's the top man in the owner's group.

*Sigh*

This is just outrageous B.S period!

If the NBA needs to fine the San Antonio Spurs Org, they needed to be reasonable.

$250k? Really! Why so cheap $tern... Could you ask for a $1M since you were at it! :rolleyes

Really $tern....Dis-Service to the League and the fans, huh?!:smirk

You mean the lesson here for Pop and our Spurs org is (Hey don't even think about repeating this shameless unplug any more because that this will cost the Spurs Big Hefty Sanctions of $) :smirk

The Question here is would Pop do it again after this?

My suggestion for Pop would be to sit the Big Three in Suites and not send them home again if this is hurting the Spurs Org pocket.

But Does that mean in the Playoff this year we are guaranteed to have SCREW up Retarded Joe Crawford again to ruin at least two game in any series?

What a joke!:banghead

Nobody cares that 90% of the league shows up physically but mentally checks out until five minutes left in the game.

Spurs give it all every night. You need a rest every now and then.

BS.

But this is a Lakers tradition.

old timer 12-01-12 09:09 AM

The players' assosiation should fight it since the move was made to protect players from over use. someone posted they could understand this type move last year with the compressed schedule. If they had done their math they would have realised The Spurs playing at the same rate per month over the next three months would have played 68 games by the end of February, when in a little longer span last year they played just 66 in their compressed schedule.

The argument about resting players late in the season does not hold water either. Over playing players early is, or can easily become a factor in players breaking down later in the season. If anyone should be fined it should have the schedulers, or the senior league official for approving the schedule.

If it were all really about fair play, Stern would have apologized for scheduling one which had played 17 games, was coming off a six game road trip, which included playing them in ten days, not to mention they would be playing the game in question as their fourth in five days, against the home team, which not played a game in that time span and had played fust 13 total. Oh, and by the way, the home was only the defending champs.

Did I mention people have been saying for years, including this, three of the four players in question will be too worn down come playoff time? NO! Not did I mention the players had already been over worked making up for the loaded two their top rotation personnel. As it was the visiting team trotted out four players who have started for their respective Olympic teams including the top scoring, per game, player in the Olympics this year. The fifth player is only the leading three point shooter.

Point being Mr stern just doesn't want anyone putting an asterisk beside this win. Whether a team rests players in November, or Math and April is like saying wins in November and December only count for half a win.

Top and bottom, if you want your top players in your national show case games, schedule their games accordingly!

So much for flying under the radar!

aztlan2012 12-01-12 08:42 PM

Ok so here is my crazy thought. I believe What made Stern so mad was the plan that was set when the schedule was made was ruined by Pop. What was the plan? I am glad you asked. Spurs vs. Heat what better way for the league to show a national audience how dominant the super star champions are by serving up the former champs on a platter for them. No one can deny the odds where stacked against the Spurs with the huge difference in schedule leading up to the game. So Pop did the only thing he could do, not put his guys up for sacrifice. And that is why Stern was so mad. Go Spurs Go.

When has the NBAPA ever fought a team fine for a franchise owner or group of owners????????????????????

clovisnmspurfan 12-02-12 03:55 PM

AZTlan 12,
WOW!! You are so right on. The amazing thing is if our 9 players hadn't also been dog tired we could have beaten them!!

WILLTHETHRILL 12-06-12 12:41 AM

??????????
to my question

bigjosh721 12-06-12 01:15 PM

Stern should use that $250,000 fine to pay half the tickets to the " disserviced fans". Since only half of the SPURS team showed up.

they'll fight about it, if not now. i'm wrong on this account but the board of owners will have a say to Stern.

as Pop said, if anything gets challenged, it'll be in private not public
