San Antonio Spurs fined by league

Offiicial Release
Posted Nov 30, 2012 6:05 PM


The NBA announced Friday that the San Antonio Spurs organization has been fined $250,000 for its decision to send four players home prior to the Spurs' Nov. 29 game in Miami. The Spurs' actions were in violation of a league policy, reviewed with the NBA Board of Governors in April 2010, against resting players in a manner contrary to the best interests of the NBA.

NBA Commissioner David Stern stated: "The result here is dictated by the totality of the facts in this case. The Spurs decided to make four of their top players unavailable for an early-season game that was the team's only regular-season visit to Miami. The team also did this without informing the Heat, the media, or the league office in a timely way. Under these circumstances, I have concluded that the Spurs did a disservice to the league and our fans."

So the Spurs lose the game and they get a substantial fine? Not right!

Because as he's said again and again, he markets 'stars'. He's incapable of marketing 'teams' and SA is a small media market.

Stern is buying hatred at a discount.

Does Stern really wanna go to war with the mighty San Antonio Spurs?
And the whole city of San Antonio?

So . . . does that mean if they told the NBA what they were doing ahead of time, it would've been ok?

BS.

:banana :applause :lol

I guess next time if Pop dares to think this shameless thought of sending his Big Three & Danny Green home on a night where they played 4 games in 5 nights, then the Spurs Org needs a minimum of five days in advance plea sent to the League officials to review the rating then see what can they do to substitute that huge gap of missing our Mighty Spurs Big Three and get an approval or not allow it since it could be a violation of a dis service to the league and fans!!!

Oh Boy!
facepalm

So the appeal would be to whom? This is a farce. Then again, the nba screwed the spurs last year so this isn't shocking

agreed. The officiating in the OKC series was terrible and blatantly one-sided
