PLAYERS: David Stern
TEAMS: Utah Jazz

From NESN:

David Stern may already be auditioning for a new career.

Though Stern’s tenure has been marked by some controversy — much of it surrounding officiating — there’s no denying that the stature of the league has increased exponentially under his watch.

On Monday night, Stern stopped by the FedExForum in Memphis to visit with the visiting Utah Jazz’ television broadcast team to talk about the state of the game, and ended up being goaded into doing a little play-by-play and color commentary.
