Personally, I am tired of hearing the same topic about the Spurs be brought up again and again. Why don't you talk about the rabid season they are having this year? But critics keep bring up the game against the Heat, when the Spurs told their five starters to stay at San Antonio. I was watching the game that night, and I heard many opinions from the sports reporters. They showed empathy for the fans missing out on tough game for the Heat. They also said, "Heat and Spurs fans waited for this game, but they are missing out on the SHOW." I understand what they are saying, but it seems like no NBA team has full control over their teams. Instead David Stern is the dictator, and tries to pull a "Roger Goodell" on teams. Now a lawyer is SUING the Spurs for doing the "crime," when it surely wasn't. According to ESPN, " The Spurs violated the state's deceptive and fair trade practices law." I think Stern's new motto is: "Screw teams over and then apologize." If you didn't know, Stern fined the Spurs $250,000, then apologized later. Make up your mind Stern, seriously. The Spurs wanted to rest their team, and didn't have the intention to make waves with Miami or the NBA. I think the fans "lucked" out, considering the Heat escaped with little space.
