    I know some fantasy owners who will be disappointed to hear this. This is why you never draft Spurs, fellas. :grin:

    I can't even tell you how much I will laugh if the Spurs win anyway though.

    There are a probably a lot of people who paid good money for tickets and they get to see a bunch of scrubs. Teams like the rockets jack up prices for games like this. If I were stern I would fine him like a million dollars because it really sucks for the fans.

    I get how you feel, but this is a harsh way to describe the Miami Heat.

    This is too good. I bet Stern figures out a way to fine Pop.

    If I were Parker or Ginobody, I'd be pissed if Coach didn't let me play against the Heat on national television.

    Go F8ck yourself Coach.

    i think this is awesome.

    this is not the first time he's done this.

    the spurs are here with only 1 goal in mind, win a championship. resting players is more important than getting them beat up in an up and down meaningless game against a tough opponent in november, especially on a 4th game in 5th night all on the road type of thing

    Will Popovich be drawn to Houston if Murray gives him an iPad? We have assets!
