Commissioner Stern died. Had a sad feeling this was coming after hearing about the brain hemorrhage.

Sad. He was a hardass, but he was the right kind of hardass. The kind that was good for the NBA and the game of basketball. I know some folks didn't like him, but I'd take him over Silver any day. RIP David Stern.

Sallary cap, drug testing, bad labour relations, dress code. What did he do that was good?
Obviously it's bad when anyone dies but acting like he was some sort of saint is disingenuous.

Saved the league and made it second only to the NFL in popularity and success.

Do some reading or at least research before posting your opinion.

He should have retired like a decade before he did but he still built the league into what it is today.

Remind me where I said he was a saint? He was a hardass who rubbed some people the wrong way for sure. He didn't put up with nonsense, which made him easy to dislike as overly serious, but he shaped the NBA in an overall positive way.

Sterilised and corporatized structures do well in America for sure, but the culture of the league was severely affected by his time in office.

Because they can offer him a 5-year deal in free agency. Sources say he has absolutely no interest in leaving LA. He just wants to get an extra year.

The truth about Russell Westbrook: The Thunder without him this year are equally as relevant as they were with him last year (last year they were 6th in the West. This year they're 7th so far). He's a talented guy, but unless he's leaning heavily on a superstar like Harden or Durant, he's not getting anywhere near a title.
