David Stern took The Jim Rome Show down an uncomfortable road today when the NBA commissioner fired a particularly personal shot at the host.

Rome asked if the NBA draft lottery was fixed, to which Stern replied, “Have you stopped beating your wife yet?”

The few minutes after the remark were spent debating the legitimacy of Rome’s question and the interview ended with Stern saying “I have to go call someone important now. Stephen A. Smith is up next.”
