I don't know I've never noticed this before, but Adam Silver is a really weird looking dude. His head is really long and narrow and he's got some huge ears.

30th anniversary of the day he took over. Longest tenured commissioner of any of the major sports leagues

Yeah, he really doesn't look the part of a major professional sport commisioner at all.

Say what you want about Stern and his mistakes, but he has been the best commissioner currently in the four major sports. I don't think it's been that close either.

People that knock on Stern haven't watched the league long enough to know what's he's accomplished in his time. He's dragged the game from what it was in the 70's to being one of the premier leagues in the world. People don't remember or know about watching playoff games on tape delay after the 11 pm news. Half filled arenas for even the top teams during regular season. Lack of media coverage. On an on if you look hard enough there's not a single area of the league that hasn't improved tenfold during Sterns time as commish
