NBA  > General NBA  > Adam Silver
August 6, 2013, 01:50 PM
Most fans I've spoke to about David Sterns retiring next season and Adam Silver replacing him say in so many words,"they can't wait".For one reason or another most people I've talk to are sick of David Sterns and feel Adam will bring a fresh approach and make some necessary changes.
Personally,I feel it will be a lot more of the same,almost like cloning.Adam has and will continue most of D.Sterns policies and deal with players in the same manner as Stern does.I also feel if there are any biases towards teams already,it will continue thru Silver.
For years,I've felt the NBA headquarters,alone with Stu Jackson have been bias towards the Celtics,and a few players around the league.When passing down suspensions,fines,etc.Stu especially has been outwardly unfair to Celtics players and some other players throughout the league.Im not sure why he has it in for non Celtics players but I've felt when a Celtics player is involved in a issue,he goes the distance in handing down time and cash.
Also,Stu Jackson has been extra easy on Heat players in the past.Lets go back and take a look at D.Wade's WWF move on Raja Rondo in the playoffs a few seasons ago,Whatabout his Mike Tyson rightcross to Kobe's nose in the 2011 AllStar Game,and most recently,his forearm shot to Pacers Lance Stephenson in game3 of this past season playoffs.For some reason Wade has always got a pass from Leagues brass.Is it Stu Jackson acting alone?Or should we hold D.Sterns accountable as well?Im feeling Sterns is the top dog no matter what weak stuff Stu Jackson hands down.
All I'm hoping and praying is,once Sterns has stepped down Silvers will bring a higher degree of fairness to the teams,players and fans.Im really hoping he either demote Stu Jackson or fire him.
How are you feeling about Silver taking over next year...do you think he will have a mind of his own or things will remain the same?
