PLAYERS: David SternJim Rome
Looks like the David Stern era will be ending in 2014. Adrian Wojnarowsky reported earlier today that the commissioner of the NBA will step down on February 1, 2014, and be replaced by Adam Silver. The Board has selected Adam Silver to succeed me as NBA Commissioner, and I am very pleased with their choice,” Stern said in the email. “As you know, Adam is a world-class business executive who has influenced so many areas of our business during his 20-year tenure with the league, from television, to digital, to international, to merchandising, to sponsorships, to team business, to, of course, labor negotiations. I know that the organization will be in very good hands when Adam becomes Commissioner. Stern has been the NBA commissioner since 1984, and will retire 30 years after he started. Although he has had multiple lockouts under his reign, the NBA has reached [previously unimaginable] international acclaim. For everything you have done, both good and bad, we thank you for your time commissioner Stern. P.S. Take a look at our old post about the Stern/Jim Rome exachange from earlier this year.

  • Stern should have retired 31 years ago, and Adam Nobody-knows-or-gives-a-crap-about-me Silver should have retired 21 years ago. Whats wrong, nobody could find Larry Bird's phone number? This is about as believable as a WWE wrestling match. Yer makin' me puke, Stern.
