Everyone has their opinions on David Stern fining the San Antonio Spurs for sending home their stars, even one of their stars. Manu Ginobili typed up a great story on explaining on CanchaLlena.com how cautious Gregg Popovich has been with him and the team and that he's done this very action before with no consequences. Manu went to state that Pop had asked him if he wanted to sit during the trip against Washington but Manu wanted to try to play against Washington to seal a win with the rest of the superstars on the floor and rest when the other stars were going to rest. Ginobili knows his limitations also, stating that he's 35 and his teammate Tim Duncan is 36 years old so they have to get the rest they can afford as a team. He also gives us an in depth description of his previous injury, which rightfully worried his coach during this mini travel tour. He didn't have balance or have confidence in his play up until playing the Nuggets two weeks ago. Manu doesn't seem upset, but more disappointed at how the NBA is treating the Spurs with this schedule and action. He also wrote that the Spurs have been plagued by injuries so far, especially in the small forward position with Kawhi Leonard and Stephen Jackson. You can bet the Spurs will still be cautious, even if the NBA doesn't agree with it.
