A couple of interesting things on that front. First, imagine the potential gambling ramifications if you saw those three guys flying commercial back to San Antonio before it was announced that they wouldn't play. Second, I love what it does for the morale of the bench guys. Imagine being Gary Neal or Splitter, or even better, one of the guys who almost never plays (De Colo, Cory Joseph, and James Anderson played a combined 69 minutes).
I love the move, but I didn't buy tickets to the game. I might feel differently if I spent the outrageous amount of money needed to go to a Heat game.
