Brandon Tierney on the Spurs resting: "Greg Popovich is paid well to position his Spurs for a title run, and keeping (mostly) old wheels fresh is part of that equation. Conversely, David Stern is paid very well to maintain the overall health, image and competitive balance of his league, to operate for the greater good, to punish precedent if it contradicts his blue print. Stern must slap the Spurs, hard...and then the Spurs must laugh in his face and do it again if deemed necessary by Popovich."
Dead on accurate.
