    Nah, it's better for the commissioner to manage playing times for teams.
    Yes, because that's clearly what happened.

    It isn't? The coach felt it was in his teams best interest to rest several players. Stern disagreed and fined them $250k. Are teams going to take that in to consideration in the future? You betcha. Stern is influenceing coaching decisions - period. I don't see how that it debatable. If he isn't then what the **** is he doing?

    Although my post was somewhat tongue in cheek to the ridiculous statement that teams should stop playing other good teams. Like that is what stern is protecting against.

    I'm done with this thread. We disagree - so be it. I like and played Basketball, but I don't have a huge love of the NBA largely because of Sterns philosophy. I'm someone the NBA has mostly lost to the NFL and NCAAB. I'm over it.

    Is this same rule gonna be taken into consideration at the end of the year when the dominant teams are resting their players?
