This isn't like Phil resting Jordan in the 4th quarter when he has played every minute while under the flu. Players are expected to condition themselves to compete back to back to back games during the regular course of the season.
If some stars can play injured, there should be no reason why these starters can't go out and compete against the best team in the league.
The Spurs have proven they are not true competitors.
Yep, the players get paid millions to play basketball. And the coach gets paid millions to decide when and how they play basketball.
The Spurs proved they aren't true competitors? Yeah, its that serious. Four rings and I don't know how many 50+ win seasons in a row, but if you don't play the Heat in November, you're not a true competitor. Yep, its that serious.
