Default Do you think the championship trophy would ever be renamed...

...after David Stern, say when he stepped down or passed away?

The trophy is now named after Larry O'Brien who was Stern's predecessor and held his position for 9 years, in comparison to Stern's 28 and counting. All things considered, do you think this would eventually happen? And if it ever did, how would you feel about it?

Maybe not that trophy, but there will be a trophy named after him. More than 3 decades with the league, for better or worse, warrants it. They will find a way to honor him, I think.

The MVP trophy will be named the "David Stern Trophy"

The winner of the NBA lottery will also be named the "David Stern Award"

like it or not, stern has been behind the most prolific eras in NBA history. i hope he doesnt get the championship trophy but instead i hope he gets something else. like the all-star game trophy, which would be perfect for him.

Consider this: Larry O'Brien had been the commissioner of the NBA for 9 years and the trophy was renamed after him in honor of his work through his relatively short tenure. Most notably, he oversaw the ABA/NBA merger and saw rise of the NBA to national prominence through icons like Dr. J, Magic, and Bird.

David had also seen the NBA grow to brand new heights in popularity and directed a lot of expansion of the league as world culture, technology, and the game itself had changed.

Both have met controversy for business decisions they've made and certain public relations issues. Especially depending on how his tenure ends, whether it's with a timely, graceful bow-out or a sudden death (hopefully not, obviously), I couldn't see Stern not being honored in some big way by the league. Bill Russell was honored by having the Finals MVP trphy named after him. Somehow I think Stern would have the league championship trophy in his name, or the MVP, if it had to be by way of trophy that is.

good idea actually. every year there'd be a bidding and whichever wins, get their brand name on the trophy for that year.

That's like saying if Kobe would have won every Final he has been too, lets say he got atleast two more League MVP. The Finals MVP trophy would be renamed as the Kobe Bryant's Finals MVP.

They should name it the Lakers-Celtics Trophy since the teams combined have won 33 of 65 titles
