Default The legacy of David Stern

How do you perceive David Stern now that his era as NBA commissioner has come to and end? I think he was good overall, brought great professionalism to the NBA, handled situations like the Magic HIV etc well, benefited from Jordan being drafted in his tenure which added to the explosion of NBA popularity but i think hes done pretty well all in all.

He has managed the NBA well, whether it was ethically done or not. He has had a few question marks, like his infamous "i know where they were buried" comment, Tim Donaghy sent to jail for corruption, the supposed "bent corner" on the lottery card for Ewing, and the numerous rule changes over the years.

I never liked the guy, I suspect something may surface on him after he retires, but I'm happy he is moving on and hopefully we might see some old rules come back or better officiating standards accross the board.

I don't like him, but I respect that he has a hard job keeping alot of people happy.

The most dominant force the NBA has ever known. Nobody impacted games as much as him. A true ATG.

The resume speaks for itself. He's one of the most important men in the history of the sports, his name belonging in the same sentence as the likes of James Naismith and Michael Jordan.

And yes, he did more than a few questionable things to achieve the success he had, but you can say that about almost everyone who rose to the top and stayed there for so long. The "buried bodies" are only metaphorical, it's not like we're talking about a dictator.

He deserves a lot of credit honestly.

Granted a lot of fans from other sports will say he's overrated because he had Michael Jordan and that drove basketball's popularity globally, but I still think Stern really changed how modern day sports are televised, marketed, etc.

Great commissioner, I think a lot of fans hate him because its considered cool and they think theyre supposed to and dont really know why, like theyre rebing against the guy in charge or whatever. But hes obviously kept the game enjoyable and the league successful, what else really matters??

I can respect his success in turning around the NBA and his vision for what the sport of basketball can lead to word wide, however the guy runs the league like a dictator.

Three words... "For basketball reasons".

I don't think anything else can so adequately describe his tenure.
