Looking Back At The Impact of David Stern

David Stern

Today is David Stern‘s last as the comissioner of the NBA. Deputy commissioner Adam Silver will take the reins starting next week, but in the mean time, lets take a look back at all that Stern has accomplished during his record 30-year run as the captain of the NBA ship.

Video: Amar’e Stoudemire Tests His Knee In The D-League

Last night was one of those evenings where we really wished we didn’t cover the NBA for a living. Who set up this schedule? When you combine a bunch of really bad teams with some good teams that don’t have anything to play for, ugly basketball ensues and brain cells die. Not all was lost though. The Spurs might have a few old guys, but they can still get it done, and last night San Antonio wrapped up the West’s No. 1 seed with a 124-89 destruction of the Blazers. Tim Duncan had 18 and the versatile Spurs again made sure everyone fed on Portland’s remains … Read More »

Kobe Bryant

Kobe Bryant is having no trouble drawing attention, and putting himself into position to make money with this lockout looming overhead. He’s been in negotiations with the Italian club Virtus Bologna for a minute now. When we first heard the club had offered $1 million to Kobe for one game, we almost lost it.
