Re: NBA Thread: 12/13 Season - Where Chandler "MVP" Parsons reigns.
So why not just rest them against the Magic? It's not like the commute from Orlando to Miami took a lot out of them. Yes, Pop has done this before & I hated it every time in the past that he has done it too. But this is the team with the best record in the East, the defending champions, on the first game on TNT with Charles Barkley on commentary. If I were Stern, I would be pissed too.
He also waited until the last minute to let anyone know too, so the fans that bought tickets to this game are going to be pissed. It also fucked with betting lines, for whatever that is worth (nothing, really).
