    Rome fans?

    Lots of conspiracy theorists say he rigs the draft...

    Same thing happens to Roger Goodell during the NFL draft. Its just simply what happens to commissioners it seems.

    Being commissioner won't make anyone popular. It comes with the job and the paycheck.

    But, the booing is just a game at the draft. Stern eggs it on. Then people cheer the deputy commissioner who does the second round. It's a bad cop-good cop schtick.

    The lockout was the biggest reason for Both Stern and Goodell being booed this year.

    He makes upwards of $20 million a year. He probably is smug.

    I know some very smug ******** who don't make 1 percent of that.

    Yeah, I was going to say that.

    I also think there needs to be a limit on commissioner terms. Selig, Stern, and Bettman, all need to be replaced. Each one of those guys have been doing it for 20ish years, it's time for some new blood.

    Even with the lockout the NBA has been doing great under Stern. The NBA is probably at it's highest popularity level since Jordan.

    Wrong, they do it every year, doesnt matter who it is. They boo the commish and cheer the 2nd guy. Its a game.

    Stern loves it and loves to mess with people. He is actually a funny guy.
