Bill definitely has a blind spot when it comes to Stern and Silver, doesn't he? Even when Stern's chickens are coming home to roost and he was continuing to do a poor job as commissioner in those final years, Bill blames the owners instead of Stern. The reason the NBA would all but disappear tomorrow if LeBron James got hit by a car is because it became strictly a personality-driven league under Stern and Silver. And let's not be too quick to pat Stern on the back for the fact that there aren't many NBA teams currently up for sale. How many NFL and MLB teams are up for sale? The NBA is not outstanding in this regard.
