I think it's more because he sent them home before the game even started.
If they were on the bench I don't see them getting fined

A technicality to be sure..............but one that was almost moot, giving the Heats less than dominating performance

Nobody fines teams that get blown out constantly and only win 2 games in a season. That isn't exactly a big TV draw.

Makes 100% total sense to me.
Then there's the fact, for all of you screaming about the "business" end of it, that this could be completely a business judgment by the Spurs if you care to look at it that way. What really puts fans butts in the seats? Winning, and in particular winning championships. Looking at least year and all the injuries that took place and the age of the starters on the Spurs that are in question here, if the coaching staff believed that periodically resting his players puts them in a better position to win that championship, then that right there is a smart basketball as well as smart business move. Meanwhile, TNT did not pay for the TV rights to watch those particular players. They'd paid for the broadcasting rights to 2 NBA teams. Sure they took into consideration who was on these teams when they picked which game to air, but it's not like they specifically calculated paying more for this particular game because of who was in it (it was just one game in a package deal). Anyway, it's not TNT screaming for money, it's David Stern. And I have a big problem with the NBA itself, a loose organization of competing business ventures, penalizing an independent business on fuzzy grounds about how this is, in David Stern's sole opinion, somehow "detrimental" to the game.

Or as others here have said, much more succinctly "bull shit."

Default Re: Spurs fined...........

I gotta say in my 30yrs+ of watching professional sports in this Country, this is the dumbest, stupidest, most ridiculous fine I have ever seen.......

On what level besides bureaucracy do this make since?

But the Comish has the bully pulpit, and has nothing better to do than controlling a teams lineup! LOL

Wonder if the Spurs had Won if it would have made ANY difference at all???

I would definitely appeal the fine..... I mean this one was asinine!

The last time a Commish got like this MLB threw him out of office and went a few years w/o one it might be time for the NBA owners to remind David Stern he works for them not the other way around.

No one has mentioned how the Spurs were playing their fourth game in five days while the Heat hadn't played a game in five days. If Stern didn't want this to happen he shouldn't have made the schedule such a cluster****.
