David Stern to Jim Rome: "Do you still beat your wife?"
 
David Stern was on Jim Rome's show today. Rome asked Stern "Was the NBA lottery rigged?" to which Stern replied, "Do you still beat your wife?"

Asshole move for sure, but why is Rome asking such a stupid question? He kind of deserved that reply by Stern.

So he's implying that he rigged the lottery in the past, and no longer does? Since Jim Rome once beat his wife, and presumably no longer does?

Recap:

Quote:

Question starts right around 7:38 minute mark.

Rome: You know New Orleans won the draft, which of course produced the usual round of speculation that maybe the lottery was fixed. I know that you appreciate a good conspiracy theory as much as the next guy, was the fix in for the lottery?

Stern: You know, I have two answers for that. I'll give you the easy one. No and a statement, "Shame on you for asking.".

Rome: I understand why you would say that to me and I wanted to prep by saying it respectfully, I think it's my job to ask because people wonder.

Stern: No it's ridiculous.

Rome: I know that you think it's ridiculous, but I don't think the question is ridiculous cause I know people think that. I'm not saying that I do, but I think it's my job to ask you that.

Stern: Have you stopped beating your wife yet?

Rome: Yeah, I don't know if that's fair.

Stern: Why's that?

Rome: Because I think that there is, and I know you read your e-mails and I'm sure you follow things virally and on twitter, people really do think it, whether it's fair or not.

Stern: Well, they think it because it's...

Rome: You don't think the question is fair to ask if your fans think it?

Stern: Silly questions. I expect it to be written about and you know, I actually I commented on my presser there was one guy who I won't dignify by name says "I have no reason to know anything and I don't know anything, but I tell you it's totally fixed." Ok, that's good, why is that?

Well if this team won it, or that team won it, it would have been a fix also. And if every team was invited and had a representative there and there were four members of the media there and the (board?) certified it. You still think yes. I guess...

Rome: I think 2 things which to respond to this. Number one, I don't think so. I don't think so and I'm not covering myself. I don't think so, but by asking the question would not suggest that I think so. But the one thing I would say, the league does own the team, does it not?

Stern: Yes

Rome: Does that not make the question fair?

Stern: I don't think so. Number 1, we sold and we're going to close it this week. We have already established our price. I think that if we had... that if it had gone to Michael Jordan, which was the next team up in terms of high percentage, Stern was taking care of his friend Michael and if it would have went to Brooklyn which is going to Bradley Center would have taken Brooklyn off of the mat. There's no winning.

I wouldn't read that much into it. He said the same thing at the Tim Donaghey press conference.

Pwnd.

Re: Stern: "Do you still beat your wife?"
 
Rome has never once had a history of beating his wife so the question Stern asked in response to the Lottery being fixed is somewhat justified. its an unfair question.

Thanks for confirming why I wont listen to Rome. The Jim Everett incident says all you need to know about Jim Rome.
