The true issue is NBA tickets are too expensive and too "special." All these professional sports sold out the ordinary fans for corporate money (all of which is tax deducted, ridiculously). The tix cost too much and thus the fans expect too much. Of course the NBA players and teams should have the right to rest their players. It's an 82 game season plus a long stretch of playoffs. Stupid discussion. If Adam Silver is concerned with the fans, he should figure out a way to take some of the TV money and put it towards making tix prices reasonable.
