Although I can't say I am as into bball as I was before, but still... And yea like dude said, they are going to have him on a very short leash. Stern had leeway because he re-made the NBA. Out of everything he has done... even his controversial decisions (like 19 rule, dress code) have been in no way wrong.

Sorry if this was already posted, I skimmed through the thread, but why is he leaving or retiring in the middle of the season?

He's retiring exactly 30 years since he started.

Stern was never the face of the NBA.

Yes and you could argue he retarded the NBA's growth. Without Magic, Bird and Jordan he would be nothing.

I'm sorry having great stars does not magically mean league growth. It takes skill at the top to do that regardless of how good the product is.

Of course no one exists in a vacuum. Of course he had good circumstance. It does not diminish what he accomplished in growing the NBA brand.
