NBA commissioner Stern was a guest on Rome’s radio show today, and Rome asked him if the draft lottery was fixed. Now, this is a question that many people have asked since the lottery because of the circumstances (the New Orleans Hornets, owned until very recently by the NBA and finally unloaded to Mr. Benson, won the #1 pick). Rome, who has a reputation as a fire-starter (just ask Jim Everett…), asked the question respectfully. Stern denied the allegation, but then responded with “Have you stopped beating your wife yet?” This is a question often used to make a point about defense-less questions, but I’m sure many people listening aren’t aware of that. They went back and forth a bit more before ending the interview.
What do you think? Fair or foul on the commish?
