Re: NBA Thread: 12/13 Season - Where Chandler "MVP" Parsons reigns.
I have faith in Silver, I think he'll be an upgrade over Stern.
Silver came out and defended Pop last night after Stern pretty much threatened to fine them for sitting their starters. Silver pretty much said that Pop knew what he was doing. All Stern cares about is money, that's it. He doesn't care about the fans, all he cares about is ratings. While I'm not saying Silver won't care about money, I don't think he'll be as bad as Stern is. Stern is the reason why the NBA markets superstars so heavily now. That's how he chose to market the NBA, not teams but the star players. Don't market the Chicago Bulls as a team, market Michael Jordan. Don't market the Los Angeles Lakers as a team, market Magic or Kareem or Kobe. Don't market the Cleveland Cavaliers as a team, market LeBron. Don't market the Rockets as a team, market Hakeem or Yao. The list goes on and on.
I actually think Stern is an indirect cause for the SuperFriends era.
