Like all of the other years before it, the 2011-2012 NBA season was loaded with Academy Award-winning flopping. The art of the flop has been perfected by a number of players throughout the league, and it has often affected the outcome of games. Fans are calling for a rule that would discourage players from flopping, and David Stern insists the NBA is planning to look into it during the offseason.
“‘Flopping’ almost doesn’t do it justice,” Stern said Tuesday according to Pro Basketball Talk. “Trickery. Deceit. Designed to cause the game to be decided other than on its merits. We’ll be looking at that.”
Hahahahahahah. Did he just say, “designed to cause the game to be decided other than on its merits?” I won’t get into how incredibly hypocritical that particular statement is because I could ramble all day, but I’m sure you get the point. Anyway, onto the rest of Stern’s rant.

We all can recall that epic Jeff Van Gundy rant about flopping a few months ago and most certainly have a very opinionated view on flopping, but what about David Stern? David Stern has addressed the topic of flopping and has said the competition committee will discuss flopping at its next meeting on June 18th, but [...]
Emperor David Stern got a bit sassy today with the egomaniacal Jim Rome. In his typical douchebag tone, Rome asked Stern if the lottery was rigged. Stern fired back:
DS: I have two answers for that. I’ll give you the easy one – No. And the statement – shame on you for asking.
JR: I understand why you would say that to me and I wanted to preface it by asking respectfully, but...
NBA commissioner David Stern went postal and acted like a clown pocket on Wednesday when radio host Jim Rome asked him if the Draft Lottery on May 30 was rigged. “I know that you appreciate a good conspiracy theory as … Continue reading →
The NBA lottery is not fixed and Commissioner David Stern is offended by the idea that anyone would think so.
Just a day after the first game of the NBA Finals, Stern went on Jim Rome’s radio show, The Jungle and what was supposed to be a friendly conversation turned into a heated back and forth debate [LISTEN TO ENTIRE CONVERSATION HERE]. By the time the 12 minutes...
Twitter figuratively exploded this afternoon when Jim Rome had NBA commissioner David Stern on. Rome asked the commissioner if the NBA lottery was fixed. Stern tried to make Rome feel shameful for even asking, but Jim Rome defended his question. Then Stern unleashed the question that would set the world abuzz.
“Have you stopped beating your wife yet?”
Admittedly the reference...
The draft lottery tussle begins at the 7:45 mark and for the rest of the interview you hear a combative Stern rarely heard publicly. Stern's response to whether the draft was rigged was no. He goes on to ask Rome, "Have you stopped beating your wife yet?" Not because Rome has a history there, but to show it's hard to prove something that's not true. I would...
Every move we make has repercussions, some great and others small. If you decide to dart out and run across an Interstate freeway during rush-hour, odds are pretty high that you will get hit by a vehicle. If there is an unlocked door to the lion’s cage at the zoo and you decide to join a hungry, massive, carnivorous feline in his home, there is a good chance that you will soon...
David Stern > Jack Nicholson: Commish Stern ain't no Colonel Jessup to you Tom Cruise Jim Rome. Stern is cold-blooded, clutch, when the pressure gets put on him. Stern just put the shoe on the table, which is turned when all eyes ears were on him today. Now that's how it's done, Miami Heat. [Follow me @TravisHouser]
PS - David Stern smirks. Someone will get...
Another rumble in the jungle T..
Jim Rome interviewed NBA Commissioner David Stern yesterday on his radio show and asked him the simple question “Is the NBA Draft Lottery fixed?” Stern gave two answers. “No.” and “Do you still beat your wife?” You have to respect Romey for asking the tough questions. Why did Stern get so defensive? To see the Video continue reading. ...
So by now you have heard of the redonk conversation Jime Rome and NBA Commissioner David Stern had on the radio today. It went something like this…….
Jim Rome: Was The NBA Lottery rigged?
David Stern: Have you stopped beating your wife yet?
Ahhhhhhhhhhhhhh hell no! It’s time for some David Stern vs. Jim Rome NBA Meme action!
Uh...a professional sports commissioner should know better than to get into a silly argument/debate with a talk radio host.
Especially when that host is trying to take the high road and ask a question that quite a few people want to know the answer to.
This afternoon on Jim Rome's radio show, NBA commissioner David Stern was Romie's guest. And Rome asked him...very...
I was a mere child when the Dream Team changed the basketball landscape. My good friend Joe Ruiz suggested live tweeting the documentary, but I needed more than 140 characters. With that in mind, here’s a running diary on the documentary about greatest team ever assembled. Spoiler alert: Charles Barkley is entertaining.
7:30: Hey look, Matt Winer. I wish Turner Sports...
