The NBA shouldn't have fined Pop and the Spurs last year because they had no right to. I don't care if the game was nationally televised because during the end of last season, on April 15, 2013 the Miami Heat played the Cleveland Cavilers in Cleveland on a national televised game. Guess which three players sat out? James, Wade and Bosh.
All were listed as being injuried, which is bullshit, because on April 14, 2013, yes the night before, the Heat played Chicago in Miami. Guess which three players played over 30mins like they normally do? James 34:51mins, Wade 36:37 and Bosh
Anyone who says "well it's the end of the season, so teams can rest their players," that is crap because the last time I checked fans still pay ridicules prices for NBA tickets, so if I'm paying full price, I better see the best players play.
