David SternI’m sure by now all of you have either heard or heard about the altercation between the commissioner of the NBA David Stern and national syndicated radio host Jim Rome. For those of you still in the dark I will quickly recap it. Stern came on Rome’s radio show and was asked what seems like they yearly question, “Was the draft lottery fixed?” Stern responded by asking Rome if “he still beats his wife” and said he has made a career out of “cheap thrills”. Below is the entire radio conversation.

I’m sure most of you are thinking, “Was this the commissioner of a major sport in this country or just some idiot caller?” And to answer your question, no, that was not some hack trying to get his 15 seconds of fame. That was the commissioner of the National Basketball Association asking a member of the media if he still “beats his wife”. Yes, it was Stern using a loaded question to try and show that Rome had asked him a loaded question; however, that does not make it any more appropriate for him to act that way. Not to mention the fact that a lot of people thought he was seriously asking the question.
