FIND A STATION Dan Patrick Show
Friday: Mike Heller guest hosts

Sports Illustrated’s Chris Mannix joined the show to talk about Spurs coach Gregg Popovich not brining his starters to Miami last night.

Mannix has a problem with David Stern’s harsh comments last night about the Spurs. “That was a complete abuse of his powers as commissioner,” Mannix said.

Mannix said Popovich and the Spurs don’t care. And that this is a very common strategy.

“I don’t see how David Stern has the authority to punish them,” Mannix said.

Mannix said that Stern is taking on a very serious organization here. Spurs management has a lot of power in the NBA and Popovich is universally respected.
