NBA fines San Antonio Spurs over resting players

Fri, November 30 2012

 NBA has imposed an enormous $250,000 fine on San Antonio Spurs after funding the NBA franchise guilty of intentionally resting players during the game against the Miami Heat. A league policy forbids the pro basketball teams of resting players in a "manner contrary to the best interests of the NBA", according to a 20120 ruling.

 The San Antonio Spurs sent  four players home prior to the game with the Heat on Thursday, prompting the $1/4 million fine. Those four Spurs players were Tim Duncan, Tony Parker, Manu Ginobili and Danny Green. "The team also did this without informing the Heat, the media, or the league office in a timely way. Under these circumstances, I have concluded that the Spurs did a disservice to the league and our fans," David Stern, NBA Commissioner, was quoted on the matter. Some NBA coaches have already gone on record against the high fine the league imposed on the Spurs.
