    It's a slippery slope though. I'm all for the fans recouping their money, but no one's going to offer refunds if there's a season ending injury to one of their players. I don't see any plausible way to enforce this to make teams have to pay back the fans.

    One way around this is for teams to have significant promotional items they can give away to fans on that particular night. If say the Warriors decided to rest Steph and Draymond, they could offer the first 10,000 fans food vouchers or something similar.

    The problem with this becomes that most teams elect to rest their players on the road and not at home. So how do say the Nuggets fans deal with Lebron and Kyrie resting. It's not their fault that fans paid at their arena are upset.

    Or the fans could do what i do. Just stop going to games. I have not looked at basketball tickets in about 2 years and i live 15 minutes from one arena and 35 from the other

    The problem here is he's not only committed to play in the playoffs- unless he's gotten a special deal than EVERY other star in the league.

    Quite honestly we're only talking about him resting during a Saturday night prime time game- and against a playoff team. But I don't think they should be resting AT ALL. I think the league should address the rest issues for teams by shortening the season & eliminating back to back games.

    What does that have to do w/ the fact Steph sat during a nationally televised game? Oh yeah, nothing. Trojanfan12 asked me to name another superstar that sat during a nationally televised game vs. a playoff team. So I answered him.

    I dont care what the Cavs did, but there is a big difference.
    Cavs didnt play the previous day.
    Look at the Warriors schedule for the 10 days leading up to the Spurs game.

    2 week avi is fine.
    Dragic, Whiteside, Waiters and both Johnsons need to play game 1.
    I said that before Waiters got hurt if you look back.
