David Stern's most infamous acts as commissioner

Perhaps no commissioner in any of the major sports has ever had as much to do with the growth and success of his league than the NBA’s David Stern. Of course, as with anyone in a position of extreme power, a few misdeeds are unavoidable along the way. Stern, 70, will celebrate his 29th anniversary as NBA Commissioner in February. He has announced that he will retire in 2014, after...

NBA Commissioner David Stern visits New Orleans Saints practice (Photo)

NBA Commissioner David Stern stopped by the practice facility of the NFL's New Orleans Saints and helped breakdown the team huddle with quarterback Drew Brees at the end of Wednesday's team practice.

Stern change Spurs? Give it a rest

SAN ANTONIO On Wednesday night, in New Orleans, NBA commissioner David Stern made sure to be on hand when one of the sexiest, glitziest teams in the league adorned fans and media with something equally shiny and impressive: Kobe Bryant becoming just the fifth person in history to score 30,000 points in his career. But it was 500 miles due west, away from the records and the commissioner...

Spurs do things their way despite Stern

SAN ANTONIO On Wednesday night, in New Orleans, NBA commissioner David Stern made sure to be on hand when one of the sexiest, glitziest teams in the league adorned fans and media with something equally shiny and impressive: Kobe Bryant becoming just the fifth player in history to score 30,000 points in his career. But it was 500 miles due west, away from the records and the commissioner...

Stern: Fine was 'justified'

NBA commissioner David Stern has come out and defended his actions of fining the San Antonio Spurs a sum of $250,000 for sitting their "four best players" against a game against the Miami Heat in Miami. Stern went on to say that he has no problem with the coach (Gregg Popovich), but it's about "the relationship between 30 owners and 30 teams." He also...

Commissioner David Stern Wishes Eric Gordon Were Healthier

David Stern gets flak from a lot of different angles.  Most of it is deserved.  However, he also knows how to run the NBA.  He has built the NBA into a brand and made it so much more successful than it was when he took over.  He's always a fun listen or read when he has a conversation with someone as well.  He did just that with John Reid of the New Orleans Times Picayune...

Stern: Hornets have not sought new name, but could

NBA Commissioner David Stern says the New Orleans Hornets have yet to file required paperwork with the league to change the team's name. However, Stern says he won't object to whatever new name Hornets owner Tom Benson might choose because he knows it will be ''sensible,'' and that the league could expedite the process. Stern is visiting New Orleans as part...

Stern again playing favorites?

The cynic in a lot of us wonders if David Stern wouldn't be so concerned with intentional fouls if it wasn't for who was being intentionally fouled. And to that point, what team that guy plays for. But it's Dwight Howard and it's the Lakers, so it can't be right. The integrity of the game is comprised. The fans are cheated. Heat fans don't want to watch...

Stern: Spurs rested too many players too early

NEW ORLEANS (AP) -- NBA Commissioner David Stern said Wednesday his 250,000 fine of the San Antonio Spurs was justified because the club went beyond what league owners agreed was a reasonable approach to resting healthy players.

David Stern wants a rule change to prevent "hack-a-Howard" strategy - cast your vote in our poll

David Stern is at it again, wanting to change the rules of the NBA. This time it's after the Houston Rockets were able to effectively use the "hack-a-Howard" strategy to foul Dwight Howard away from the ball (not just in the final 2 minutes) and earn a comeback victory after Dwight missed about 50% of his free throws.

Cuban to Stern: Intentional fouls part of game

The cynic in a lot of us wonders if David Stern wouldn't be so concerned with intentional fouls if it wasn't for who was being intentionally fouled and what team that guy plays for. But it's Dwight Howard and it's the Lakers, so it can't be right. The integrity of the game is comprised. The fans are cheated. Heat fans don't want to watch Spurs scrubs. Wait...

A San Antonio Halloween

Beautiful. Apparently this is real and before last week’s sanctions. Glad to see Mr. Longoria Parker and The Big Fundamental had themselves a good time this past October 31st. Photoshopping David Stern in a suit onto Joey Crawford’s body is too easy, but this photo is already too perfect. Happy belated Halloween!!   @buddhafari Article found on: Cosby Sweaters
