Robert Siegel talks to Sports Illustrated senior writer Michael Rosenberg about a controversial decision by the basketball coach of the San Antonio Spurs. The team's coach, Greg Popovich, sent four of his top players home before the team played the Miami Heat in Florida. The Spurs were concluding a difficult road trip and Popovich wanted to rest his best players. National Basketball Association Commissioner David Stern said this decision was unacceptable and has fined the team $250,000.
