http://sports.yahoo.com/news/allen-heat-top-short-handed-035703071--nba.html Short version: NBA Spurs coach sends several verteran starters home for league game citing grueling upcoming schedule. NBA Commissioner publicly apoligizes to fans and promises stiff sanctions. This is commonplace in soccer. Is the product that different between the NBA and EuroSoccer? Is it all about the star power and the entertainment, or is it about how best to win a championship. Curious what folks thought about this. I think the NBA is being ridiculous and is ultimately cheapening its game by putting players ahead of competition.
