when asked why he nixed the cp3/dwight trade to the lakers, his answer was, "basketball reasons"

and this by far was the better phrase. some of the gifs that came out of it were priceless.

cue someone posting stern in swat gear macing protestors.

sup dude.

What did he refer to when he said that?

My all time favorite would be and I'm paraphrasing here, "Do you still beat your wife?" towards Jim Rome.

not much, just chilling

no clue what he was referring to, but from the quote:

Quote:
Stern told the room he knows where “the bodies are buried” in the NBA, witnesses recounted, because he had buried some of them himself.

“It was shocking,” Chicago Bulls star Derrick Rose(notes) told Yahoo! Sports. “I was taking off my gear, and when he said that, I just stopped and thought, ‘Whoa …’

“I couldn’t believe that he said it.”

Rose wasn’t alone. Said another All-Star in the room, “I was shocked … just shocked.”

people have theorized that it was a Jordan gambling thing, but I'm not sure that would get that kind of reaction at a players' meeting, so it would have to be something more far-reaching that would impact a large number of players (either everyone today, or the 'old guard' of guys who were around for the last lockout)

the Rome line was great...I guess Stern has known he was stepping down for some time, so he's just having fun with it at this point

Age and power does that to you. Just look at Moderators on various forums (not here though)!

I think Basketball Reasons is the better of the two, but it doesn't matter because both are fantastic lol.
