Someone get NBA com commissioner David Stern a collection of Jerry Springer Uncensored tapes, stat. The dude apparently has too much time on his hands. Either that or he’s cracked up completely.
He has implemented a really lame dress code for the NBA’s players. Seems he thinks he needs to tell these grown men what they can and can’t wear. They have to wear shirts with collars and slacks. No jewelry, no jerseys, no t-shirts….
See the pic below of Mr. Iverson? Apparently Stern stands against everything Allen’s wearing. Me? I think Allen looks pretty darned cute. I also think he means more to the NBA than Mr. Blackwell-a-be.
In one of the weirdest quotes I’ve read out of the whole comedy came from Phil Jackson. He said that players have been wearing “prison garb.” What prison would that be???
Another Jackson, Pacers Stephen Jackson, believes the code is racist. “Almost 100 percent of the guys in the league who are young and black wear big chains. So I definitely don’t agree with that at all.” What DOES it hurt anyone for these kids to dress how they want to dress???
I don’t think Stern is racist, just painfully out of touch. Maybe someone should tell him that he doesn’t own these players – they’re free and of age and can darn well dress themselves. Maybe someone should point out that he and his generation don’t represent the norm for NBA fans and they sure as heck don’t represent the players. Perhaps someone should ask him what the casual dress hurts…
Nah, let’s just buy him the collection of tapes.
Make each moment count double,
