    Reminds me of a young, bald Bud Selig.

    It couldnt come at a better time. I do think we'll appreciate Stern more after he's gone.

    But the league could use some fresh direction with its newer generation of players and newest forms of team management. Along with the different ways we view content now.

    Theres gonna be some annoying things like aads on uniforms and trying to be more international. But it could bring with it some tweaks to rules and the product on court being better

    Where did I rank him based on looks? Where in my post did I question his abilities? What does your response have anything to do with mine?

    FOH with this nonesene

    Larry Bird and Magic fell into his lap, then ESPN and Jordan. The NBA and cable news were perfect for each other, and the fact that White kids embraced hip hop culture didn't hurt, either. And while the NBA isn't as screwed up as MLB, free agency has allowed super stars to wrestle control from owners, and that's on Stern. I'd say his legacy is favorable, but the praise is being laid on way too thick.

    Well, your comment was that he is creepy looking. Since that's the only comment you made, I think his response makes perfect sense.
