Default Suns sat Dragic vs. Utah on purpose to help them win

Why is nobody enraged by this?

The Suns sat out Dragic for reason: "rest" only so the Jazz would be sure to win, and have a better chance of catching the Lakers, so that the draft pick they get from the Lakers will be better.

This isn't basketball. This is stupidity.

Watch the Suns sitting anyone and everyone any time they play the Mavs, Blazers, Jazz, Rockets, or Golden State, but play them against everyone else.

Sickening.

That's what happens when you spend the season screwing around. Lakers could have made this a non issue weeks ago. The Suns are just taking advantage of the Lakers poor approach to games this season

If the Suns wanted to ensure a Utah win, they would have forfeited the game

Theyre sitting him again tonight(vs Kings). It's called tanking. Dragic is pissed about it too. He wants to play.

Maybe the Suns want to see what Kendell has over these last 10 or so games and are resting Dragic to remove and pressure as far as playing time on Marshall. But with Gortat out they really should be playing Dragic regardless but they have to build for the future at the same time.
