Re: David Stern

I hated Stern with a passion. I know he did well with expanding the sport internationally and marketed the sport very well, and made excellent business decisions in making the sport as big and financially lucrative as it is. 

But you could also say that Magic, Bird, Michael, Shaq, Kobe and LeBron were part of that too.  I think part of the growth of the league was Stern supporting the “Star” players but that support leading to affecting the game through superstar treatment at the foul line or regarding who gets suspended and for how long is part of it. 

Donaghy happened on his watch. No accountability for referees with clear biases against teams or players. Uneven enforcement of suspensions during the playoffs (thinking about the PHX /SA series where Horry bodychecked Nash into the table at center court and the PHX players who had the temerity to take two steps toward him all getting suspended).

Its sad he died. Condolences to his family. But let’s not saint him or think him flawless.

Scott Foster is reffing the Rockets game tonight.  How is there any accountability for referees if people with biases and agendas get to referee games against the teams / players that they hate?  Harden is probably fouling out and probably won't shoot more than 5 free throws.  It's insanity that they let Donaghy's partner in crime still ref games, and even more insanity that they allow him to ref games against Houston.

Harden goes for 44-11-11.  Anyone else have a game like this it’s a career defining event. It’s just another day for Harden. Plus, Capela completely dominates Embiid. Westbrook can simultaneously be one of the best on the court and the worst at the same time.

also, new ‘do for the Beard:

Dwight Howard is going to be in the dunk contest?

His resurgence this season has been neat but he really doesn't have hops like that anymore.

I'm enjoying Lebron absolutely schooling Doncic tonight, but this is the worst officiating I've seen in a long time. Almost a parody. I hope Carlisle doesn't get a fine. Has Lebron had a call against him tonight?

It only took Giannis 21 minutes to put up 37/9/4 tonight because he is not human.

Also, we need to do whatever it takes to get Ja in the All Star game.
