League Upset With Cavaliers for Resting Stars

The decision to rest LeBron James, Kyrie Irving and Kevin Love during Saturday night’s nationally televised game apparently did not sit well with the NBA league office.

ESPN writer Ramona Shelbourne’s tweets from Saturday night relay the story:

It’s easy to see where each side is coming from. Had the game not been on national television, my guess is the league wouldn’t have even bothered to call.

    It’s a very long season and has become a more physical game. A rest is not fair to the fans, but would be worse if home game. As playoffs draw near and players are needed most…it becomes more important to avoid injury. The level of play starts speeding up soon to assure home court advantage.
