Here's a link to the story where Stern says "I know where the bodies are buried."

I honestly didn't know he had said this.

Funny a hell.

Stern just goes around punking people because he can. It's like he wakes up every single morning, and is like hmm who shall I piss off today?

Dude could stop world hunger if he really wanted too, but since he is evil he chooses not to.

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

This one is great as well.

lol I remember that.

Rome was asking Stern all of these loaded questions in which no answer was a good answer.

So Stern followed it up by asking him that question, which is the definition of a loaded question.

like a boss

"Basketball reasons" has to be one of the biggest bullshit quotes in the history of mankind. Just shameless bullshitting by Stern. He was pretty much saying "I'm just making shit up as I go".

He just acts like a complete dickface and doesn't even try to hide it. "Substantial sanctions" is just the latest chapter in David Stern's book of bullshit. $250,000 fine for what exactly? Interfering with his TV ratings? That's pretty much he meant when he said it wasn't "in the best interest of the NBA".

What piece of shit.

Its tragic to think of how much better the league would be right now if Darth Sidious hadn't been commissioner for the past three decades.

You do realize that Stern basically made the NBA relevant, right?

He's been awful the last decade or so, but he was a good commish in the beginning and pretty much made the NBA relevant.
