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. Saints owner Tom Benson also owns the NBA's New Orleans Hornets, so there's the connection. Maybe Stern wants to talk Benson out of changing the team's name...

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...

Stern discusses massive Spurs fine

NBA Commissioner David Stern says 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. Stern says coaches should have the authority to rest players at the end of the season, but that teams should not rest four starters little more than a month into the season, and the...

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...

Stern Considered Spurs' Case As Precedent Setter Both Ways

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: 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...

NBA Commissioner Stern wants the hacking to stop

A powerful, and powerless, ally The Lakers would love for teams to stop intentionally fouling Dwight Howard. So would David Stern.

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...

Be Careful, Big Brother Is Watching

Now that the fallout has occurred from “Rest-gate”, there is something that not only the Knicks but all teams have to look at regarding this incident.  While granted that the Spurs did rest their players in a match up of heavyweights, there is a bigger precedence that is being over looked.  That being, how much control/input should the NBA have?  I mean the NBA and the teams...
