I hope he dies from painful ass cancer.

David Stern has been my favorite sports commissioner in my lifetime.

Vincent Kennedy McStern will get the itch to commission again, and when he does, Triple Silver better watch out.  The WWNBA will never be the same!

/Yeah, yeah, Entertainment tab where it belongs, and all that shiat.

I really, really enjoyed his banter with the crowd last night.  It was the best part of the draft.

Any chance the NBA would take back Gary Bettman as his replacement?

I wonder if he's stopped beating his wife.

So is the NBA actually rigged?  I don't pay very close attention but I guess some people got mad about Chris Paul's trade

God, that pass was so weak.

Anyhow I hear that the Cavs are gonna draft him next year.

Ends career with an uncaught pass.  Fitting.

He still gets to kill deals, make himself the story, and overstep his bounds until February when he will actually step down, so there's that.

He was best commish for a decade...then the NFL became the monster it is now.

He started slipping in the early 2000s, then when the "One rogue ref" story hit the news, you could see the chinks in his armor (get it, Jeremy Lin/NBA humor?!?! HAHAHAHAHA) and since that he's just showed that "Man, fark this shiat" look on his face since.

The first few times playing with the crowd were funny, then it just got repetitive.

Did he piss on Seattle one more time, just for old time's sake?

As many have said...Stern had nothing more than "great timing"...and even that golden goose stopped laying eggs around 1999-2000.

A dead hamster could have led the NBA with Dr. J, Magic, Bird, Jordan, etc...he deserves IMO minimal credit at best for that golden era...because he quickly then whored out the league with superstar favorable officiating and treatment and made it the sham of sport that it is today.

His biggest stamp...or just a general stamp...was the global branding of the NBA.  With NBC and Jordan as the marquee, the NBA was pulled from toiling on tape delay and general lack luster interest.

Yeah, I agree, MJ, Bird, Magic...it was a great time for a basketball fan, but Stern did help bring it to pop culture.  Then when the 90s were over, and THUG LIFE became the mantra of the NBA, well you could then see his true colors, that he was a prick, and pretty much a mafia boss.

Say what you will, out of the 3 major sports and hockey, I'd take Stern over Bettman, Goodell, and Selig.

The Thug Life stuff that Stern put rules in to stop, and did so completely successfully? Okay...

Would that be an Xhamster? Cause I would be totally cool with that.

Ok-somebody owes me an explanation. How has dropping the mic all of a sudden entered the public lexicon? Was there an episode of Mad Men or something?

DIAF, Stern.
