When is David Stern gonna grow a pair and stand up to the union and the lawyers and finally kick this bum out of the league? What's this jackass gotta do to finally get the gate for good? Kill somebody?
Haven't checked this board in a while. It will probably take what it took in the NFL, for the other players to get fed up with thuggery enough to give Stern Kennisaw Landis-type authority on suspensions for misconduct.
No sport will ever give a commish that kind of authority again unless Congress makes them do it due to the drug and steroid scandals. Hell, the baseball owners took that authority away from their commish after Bart Giamatti and Fay Vincent got a little too big for their britches in the owner's opinions, so I doubt you'll see it come back. Stern has enough authority now if he'll just use it. I don't think he even needs Landis-type powers.
