David Stern turns tables on Jim Rome during radio interview
NBA Commissioner David Stern was a guest on Jim Rome’s radio show Wednesday.
Rome is known to be controversial and straightforward. This is fine. So it was no surprise when he asked Stern whether or not the 2012 NBA Draft was fixed (the New Orleans Hornets won the first pick).
What was a surprise was Stern’s answer. “NO….Shame on you for asking.” This was followed by “have you stopped beating your wife yet?” Yup, that’s right. David Stern asked Jim Rome THAT question.
What ensued was some of the best radio I’ve heard in a long time.
I almost fell out my chair when the Commish said, “Listen, I gotta go call somebody important, like Stephen A. Smith. He’s up next.”
Again, I say, sports are much more than balls and bad calls.
Today, sports are David Stern’s snide remarks.
Getcho life, Commissioner!
