Johnny the Tackling Alzheimers Patient: Any chance the NBA would take back Gary Bettman as his replacement?
Coach_J: 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.
FinFangFark: 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.
regindyn: Say what you will, out of the 3 major sports and hockey, I'd take Stern over Bettman, Goodell, and Selig.
exick: David Stern has been my favorite sports commissioner in my lifetime.
