David Stern Enjoys Getting Booed at the NBA Draft (VIDEO)

The Commish brushes off the disrespect.

Every year, without fail, NBA fans lustily boo the commissioner of the League throughout the Draft. And David Stern seems to enjoy the fans’ helpless animosity towards him with increasing glee.

    Laughing at everything that transpires in that video. I love it. I don’t think he deserves that, but it’s hilarious to watch. Good stuff Newark!

  • tpathi1

    embarrasing as an nba fan. i swear people act like this guy has never done 1 positive thing. from his dress code to his fines, some people have no appreciation for what this man has done, not only for the nba. but for basketball in general

  • 23

    btw, i wasnt trying to say his dress code and fines are positive. but people overreacted to the dress code and always criticize when he fines coaches/players

    If the Draft was held in Vancouver the summer after the Grizz left you know we would’ve flipped that POS’s limo and lit it on fire and rioted. Cuz thats what we do.

  • anonymous

    23 are you serious? You know how many Nets fans were in the building that just had THEIR team moved away? Their not allowed to boo, and u r embarassed by it? you are a fan of the NBA? Ew.

    PPL don’t just hate Stern because he’s ugly. A recent championship was won because superstars joined forces but CP3 couldn’t go to LA? Joke! That’s why ppl hate stern. The future of the NBA was looking good but now I’m not so sure..

    Justin… CP3 is in LA ;-)

    I wanna see the crowd do a Stone Cold “WHAT?!?!?” or a Kurt Angle “YOU SUCK”

  • http://www.slamonline.com Kidd-Kidd

    The Stone Cold “What?” would be epic…..There were some Iverson chants people are really starting to pick up on the fact that AI was blackballed out of the league.

    Nothing new, it always happen whenever they see stern.

  • justin05

    lol true L.E. You know what I mean, I love to see chris ballin’ in red, white, and blue but The Lakers might have made the finals w/ Paul as their starting pg.

  • http://www.www.www Ugh

    To be honest I wouldn’t be surprised if the owners of the league make a Stern clone from his DNA after he dies.

  • Conor

    Stern is a despot.

  • MagicFan

    I think it’s fair what Stern did with the Chris Paul trade, since the Miami Heat big three joined forces via Free Agency, and Chris Paul wanted to be traded to L.A in exchange of bad pieces to the New Orleans team. Melo trade was more fair, look at how much potential the Nuggets have with the trade they got for Carmelo Anthony.

  • Justin05

    It’s just as unfair if not even more unfair. Superstars shouldn’t be able to take less money so they can team up and ruin the game. Do you see how Miami plays basketball now? It’s all penetrate, hang in the air until you find a 3 point shooter, kick it out and hope he makes it…no wonder Lebron wants ray Allen so bad. Thy neglect their weak spots (1 and 5) arguably the two most important positions in the game, so they can get Allen? What a joke. I hate everything to do with stern, pat Riley, and the Miami heat. Nobody from the east seems to be improving so let’s hope okc, San Antonio, or the la teams come to play next season.

  • Justin05

    I agree the talent needs to be balanced in the league, it will be more competitive that way. Thank god this was a short season so nobody will really count it anyway. If we hadn’t just came out of talks for a new CBA Paul would be on a real championship team, not the wanna be clippers who think thy can play after one good season. Griffin’s knees will go out and then what?

  • mannn

    So David Stern is a villian because he didn”t allow the Lakers to pull off another dubious trade? Really. The league is still competitive the heat didn’t dominate teams .
