As for the Spurs, I thought the fine should have been more and the said players suspended from playing in 5 games each. This does force the team to lie about injuries....ala Bill BeliCheat. But you, me and fans fill the arena to watch the players, not the teams. Stern made this a players league. Some spend hard earned money to take kids to games and for healthy players to sit, that is a rip off. Popovich, you are given a schedule in August, just like everyone else. Everyone else doesn't sit their best players in November. He should have been managing his teams minutes, during whatever run it was 7 in 10 or whatever. I can understand an ankle, or finger stub, but come on a full roster vacation. Pop's a big freaking baby. Pacifiers and bibs are in order for when Popovich comes to town.
