the NBA has been rigged since David stern left the league I remember one year he said he wanted the lakers in the finals

Donaghy implicated other refs. David J. Stern protected them. Silver is his protégé.

I'm just joking. Not as fun to make NBA Commish = Vince McMahon jokes now that David Stern has retired.
My favorite part of the game was when David Stern told refs to give the ball to Warriors, and then they realized he wasn't commish anymore.
David Stern aint the commish no more so how was he able to pay off the refs again for lebron?
WTH? The way the refs are calling this game, you were to think David Stern is the commish again!
I'm starting to think David Stern came back to be commish again Vince McMahon-style for this game.
