02:14 PM ET 10.08 | NBA commissioner David Stern's personal preference is to not include advertisements on uniforms, but he's not about to let his preference get in the way of a good business move for the league. In an interview in Milan, Stern said that he would let the NBA Board of Governors decide what to do about sponsorship on jerseys. "As a personal matter, I am not in favor of it, but I'm not standing in the way of it," Stern said. "If my board wants to do it, we'll do it."
