    DAVID STERN IS A COMMUNIST-TYRANT!

    anyone been following this stan van gundy-stern thing? cant believe how petty this commish is. its one thing to punish a guy for going after refs, or implementing dress codes, scowling rues, suspending a perk  for his 16th tech or forcing him to play soft during the playoffs but come on... for a guy having a personal opinion about YOU, what good is it to get all tony soprano on him "you will not be hearing from stan for the rest of the year" bla bla... talked to his owners, he must have some personal problems leading him to be this way, his team is underperforming....

    i'm no fan of stan's hyperimpulsive and emotional approach but i think stern went way over the LINE!

    ITs the same way Stern demands and intimidates the refs into guaranteeing a Laker win in game 7.

    I hope Stan blows a fuse and lets it all out... Maybe he'll give us a Tim Donaghey type statement and one-up Stern and beat him at his own game.

    Looks to me like Stan is exhausted from coaching the Magic anyway... hes set financially and any TV station would hire him in a second as a color commentator..unless Stern pressured them not to lol

    Just read the comments based on your post here.  This is not a surprise and Van Gundy knew Stern would react.  Stern is an all controlling kind of guy and actually thinks he can control the NBA's image by his fines and rules and coming down hard on folks.  Remember the massive new technical rule in the beginning of the year ("respect for the game")?   That is but an example.  

    Van gundy was just frustrated and sticking up for Howard.  He spoke the truth.  But when Stern said "I see a team that's not performing", that's when he REALLY overspoke, himself.   How can an impartial commissioner criticize one team as "not performing" when they are a playoff team.  Wow.

    Stern took off his commissioners hat and reacted to Stans comments personally.. a sign of a man drunk with power.

    And Stern, after saying the Magic are a team that's not performing, is going to speak to the owners.  If I'm the owner, I tell Stern to KMA and that I have better things to do that speak to him since "my team is not performing".

    Trying to respond to Communist Contrarian's post, but I'm not having much luck:)  Pardon me for my two nothing posts.

    Anyway, what I wanted to say was that I was especially amused to see that Stern didn't even want to speak to Van Gundy, just the "owners of the team" to make sure Van Gundy didn't misspeak in the future.  I think Stern might have even called Van Gundy's comments "aberrant behavior" or something like that.    What an arrogant little pipsqueak!

    I have loathed Stern for years.  I am amazed at his threatening comments, that suggest I am going to your bosses and this matter will be taken care of internally Stan.  Scary and outrageous that this bespectacled double chinned little geek seeks to throw his authority around so viciously.  He should be fired.

    what would be great from stan on stern is to say something like "i stand by every word i uttered about me, in fact his childish response just reinforces everything i said about him"... respecting the game is not the same as respecting STERN! how many shots have people taken at bud selig, do you see him trying to intimidate all in the game who do?

    if fired, can you imagine stan and jeff together as a broadcast team? that would be appointment TV regardless of the score or who is playing!

    I agree with you. The ESPN article about Stan has at least 1,300 posts.  Most NBA fans really dislike Stern and most agree that Stern needs to be replaced.

    Everybody says he does such a great job leading the nba to greatness, yet at the same time they claim the owners are losing money hand over fist.

    Seems to me the owners like him or he'd be gone.

    STERN often comes across as one of those guys who got dunked in the toilet one too many times and now is trying to get back at the bullies by becoming one himself!very unbecoming behavior for a commish!

    Stern went overboard in this case. A sign of senility?

    amazing!  stern is all controlling yet has allowed the players to walk away with the bank- 20 million dollar players.  expansion and now the league owns one franchise and several others are running on fumes financially.

    let's face it, the only thing stern did is ride the coat tails of magic/bird and then jordan and he's really done nothing to advance the league.  remember a few years ago when reggie miller couldn't stop talking about "parity" becuase all the teams stunk the same!!!

    and now we have just the opposite- carmelo+ama'r'e', bosh-wade-lebozo, these supposed "stars" are banding together by the 1/4 dozen in order to "win" since they can't do it on their own with decently appointed teams.  now there's collusion galore on making these star duo and star trio deals in "big market" teams.  so what's left for the little expansion market shlub teams?  nothing!!

    yes, stern is a real genius.  if he only paid as much attention to actually growing this league as he does to petty pi$$ing contests with anyone who dare say anything about a ref or any other league official...... well, something might have gotten done.

    now all the hopes are stapled to lebron's "rising star" (LOL).  and lebron is the worst quality person most of us have seen in a long time, but he's stern's meal ticket.
