I want to know from spurs fans if popovich usually sends players home like that or does he usually do the league standard sit them on the bench and list them as DNP?
He's done this before and done so for a TV game. Stern has history with the Spurs and Popovich so he does sh*t like this on his way out.

I also have to believe the Heat played some part in this too because they raised ticket prices for this game in the 400 section, according to ESPN, so they were probably pissed they got fans buying those tickets and disappointed when the Spurs stars weren't going to be there.

Let's be real...Pop chose to do it on a national tv game too.
It aint the first time though and there has never been anything said before. Why all of a sudden was it this game, this team?

pop should wait for the next national game and let them play for 2minutes and then sit them for the whole game

soccer teams rest players when a more important match is coming up. In hockey if they play back to back up usually the back up goalie Will get one of those games. baseball a manager will skip a start for a pitcher in order to have him pitch in a particular series. but I guess game planning is dead in basketball.

if he had done it in a big marquee game before like spurs vs. heat then I'm sure it would have been as big of a controversy as it was last night

and yes the tickets for nationally televised marquee games are more expensive, it was a poorly thought out move by popovich

if he really wanted to rest his players then thats what he should have done last night

but if you're not stupid you'd realize that the move was more about protesting the schedule

fining a team because it was prime time, like 4 games in as many nights on those old a.ss knees is less important than fans seeing duncan, ginobli & parker :nasmad:

They are playing 4 games in 5 nights the Memphis game held more importance than the Heat game, since they might be seeing them in May. 11 days on the road while the Heat had damn near a week off with 1 home game before last night who made this schedule?
