I just got an email response today from the NBA on my letter to them on ‘restgate’. Did anyone else?
by oldtimeyspurfan on Dec 13, 2012 12:43 PM CST

I never thought to send a letter. Is it like the letters I get back from my congressman? Sounds like they are on your side, while doing exactly what you don’t want them to do?
by SpursFanTN on Dec 13, 2012 12:44 PM CST

Yeah. It is sort of like that.
by oldtimeyspurfan on Dec 13, 2012 12:45 PM CST

Protecting the integrity of the game, fan experience, and stuff like that?
by SpursFanTN on Dec 13, 2012 12:46 PM CST

No. Here. Let me post it:

Thank you for contacting the National Basketball Association with your concerns about the recent fining of the San Antonio Spurs organization.

In making a decision to send four players home prior to their only regular-season game in Miami without notifying their opponent, the media, or the league, the Spurs violated a league policy against making players unavailable in a manner contrary to the best interests of the NBA. For the totality of these circumstances, the NBA fined the Spurs $250,000.

The league views the Spurs’ actions as more than simply a coach’s decision. The choice to make four players unavailable was vetted at the highest levels of the Spurs organization, including the general manager, team president, and chairman. Further, league rules dictate that teams notify the league office and the opposing team of any player who will miss a game due to injury or illness, and no one at the Spurs organization did so.

Thank you again for sharing your thoughts. We appreciate your feedback.

Sincerely,

They told me commissioner Stern does not suck what I suggested he did. But they were careful to add that there was nothing wrong with that.
by Hipuks on Dec 13, 2012 12:46 PM CST


Is it just me or can defenders feel like they strip Manu whenever he drives in the lane?
by mission20 on Dec 13, 2012 12:53 PM CST

To be fair, who doesn’t want to strip Manu?
by Hipuks on Dec 13, 2012 12:55 PM CST

eww

how long has jefferson had this faceup game?
by theonlyromeo on Dec 13, 2012 1:16 PM CST

This game has just turned into a Duncan-Jefferson duel.
by anirontag on Dec 13, 2012 1:16 PM CST

Duncan looks tired
by anirontag on Dec 13, 2012 1:17 PM CST

banging against Jefferson all night isn’t helping.
by anirontag on Dec 13, 2012 1:19 PM CST

Jefferson can’t be stopped by one guy, but if someone helps somebody else is wide open.
by Badpierre on Dec 13, 2012 1:19 PM CST

bon bon defends al better than duncan does..
by theonlyromeo on Dec 13, 2012 1:22 PM CST

by ziijordan on Dec 13, 2012 1:25 PM CST

These refs are supposed to be neutral, and not from the locality. So weird how much they let SLC do in SLC.
by SpursFanTN on Dec 13, 2012 1:37 PM CST

Utah. Give them another 20 years.
by Tim C. on Dec 13, 2012 2:01 PM CST

The Jazz fans really, really want this.
by CIN-C-STAR on Dec 13, 2012 2:01 PM CST

If I’m Utah, I’m drawing up a play that frees up the official in the corner for three.
by Fred Silva on Dec 13, 2012 2:03 PM CST

by TrooperJoe73 on Dec 13, 2012 2:04 PM CST


Utah is really starting to piss me off.
by Hipuks on Dec 13, 2012 2:04 PM CST

Only just now?
by MiniMegaMoose on Dec 13, 2012 2:04 PM CST

It’s Utah. It’s like hating a toaster. Pointless.
by Hipuks on Dec 13, 2012 2:05 PM CST

Fucking toasters!
by play_splitter on Dec 13, 2012 2:07 PM CST

Oh, Fuck Williams!

  2. December 13, 2012 11:38 pm

    The confetti comments crack me up. I think I’ve seen about a dozen other teams that do that.

    True story on the terrible basketball, but great shot thing. On the other hand, it was a great game. :D
