You're David Stern and it's the final 2 minutes of the sixth game of the NBA finals.The Lakers are blowing out the Cavaliers to tie the series 3-3,while Kobe,Lamar Odom and Pau Gasol are resting on the bench.It's been a ratings gold mine.The highest ever.

Things are going good.All of a sudden,Derek Fisher gets into an altercation with a bench player from the Cavs.Kobe,Lamar and Pau get OFF the bench to break it up.

Well according to the NBA rules,ANY player that gets off the bench during an altercation gets a one game suspension.

So for game 7,while the Cavs are at nearly full strength,the Lakers could be without their three best players.

What do you do,David Stern?

Find some way around our own rule and let them play with the chance of this series being an all time classic and having maybe the highest ratings ever for a NBA game

OR

enforce your rule,suspend Kobe,Lamar and Pau knowing that the ratings will be in the toilet because no one wants to watch the Cavs play an undermanned Laker team.
