Adam Silver: NBA can fine teams for resting players

Don’t rest multiple players at once or at all during a nationally televised game, or else...

by Marilyn Dubinski The NBA’s Board of Governors is set to vote on two proposals. One is a lottery reform proposal, which was created to help curb tanking by giving the three worst teams an equal 14 percent chance of winning the lottery. While this proposal will likely have no effect on the San Antonio Spurs any time soon, it is expected to face some resistance from small market teams who see the draft as their only logical means of picking up potential franchise players.

The other proposal, which is more likely to have an impact on the Spurs and contending teams in general, is the player rest guidelines. Originally it was reported that the league would “strongly recommend” that teams rest their players only during home games, and that multiple starters shouldn’t rest on the same night, and finally to avoid resting players for nationally televised games.

That’s all well and good for the fans, and to its credit the league is contributing to the solution by stretching the schedule, eliminating four games in five nights, avoiding putting nationally televised games on a SEGABABA, etc. (You can catch yourself up on all the schedule adjustments here.)

Did you ever notice, when you put the 2 words ' The' and ' IRS ' together it spells 'Theirs...'
