How NBA commissioner David Stern helped shape the league
"This is a very sad day for the NBA For anybody associated with the League I think for anybody who is a fan of this league fan of the game. Ah Game of basketball period Here or anywhere around the world because David Stern was. I don't WanNa say singularly but certainly of very much responsible for everybody around the world Loving and appreciating this game being able to see this game the expansion of this game and David Stern of of course is No longer with US and Kind of knew this day was coming a few weeks ago when we got the news that he had suffered a brain hemorrhage throughout all of that I kind of stubbornly Felt like this is David Stern. He'll come out of it. I can't imagine I I can't imagine the League has already you've been without him. I can't imagine the world without David Stern and I'm still not sure how to process that. But I did know that when the moment came to have a podcast to discuss thus David stearns legacy and all the complexities of the man That the first person I would wanNA talk to the person sitting across from me in the studio right now. That's my good. The friend former colleague at the New York Times and of course hall of Famer Basketball Hall of Famer Harvey Aronson. Thank you for being good to be here good to be here solemn occasion I I agree and But it's good to be here. Thank you this is. This is tough so we were talking about this a little bit before we started recording and as I just said I can't imagine it's just the the idea that David Stern would Just that he's that he's not among still. There are certain people who you have in such high regard who are such titans titans who are such just just giants of their field or of the world at large that I feel like they're almost unkillable. David Stern like I would not bet on the David Stern versus death. I'm betting on David. Stern like literally going to punch death in the face and said get the fuck Outta here. I ain't ready yet and I I truly I believe these last few weeks ever since the news of the brain hemorrhage that he was going to rally because he is he's as we know he's a fighter and he's stubborn as hell and I figured that would be That would apply across the board and Yeah I still. I still can't quite believe he's gone. You have known him much longer than I have starting in late Seventies. He made his presence felt he was. He was lead counsel will when he came over from his law firm. Proske our rose in these four. Names and FRESCA Rosen Mendelssohn. I always forget the third one pro scour they always I was just called but he made his presence felt around the league and particularly with the media long before he became deputy commissioner in the early eighties and then commissioner in Nineteen Ninety Four. And you know I always found it interesting especially as we went on into the ninety s and into the new century that people looked at the NBA. And they would say you know. David Stern became commissioner. Larry Bird and Magic Magic Johnson entered the League one thousand nine hundred nineteen eighty season and it was a rocket to the moon right from there. And you know it's just a revisionist sense of history because David did not become commissioner until Nineteen eighty-four and bird and magic. Were already in the League. For four years the league was still a very troubled entity. You know almost you know almost a half decade into the bird magic era. There are a lot of issues. There were teams that were said to be on the verge of close of folding there was no salary cap op. There was no drug testing drug plan. A lot didn't happen until David actually became commissioner but those of us who cover the league regularly knew to him and I knew him I knew him from being around but I got my first as we all know our first David Stern phone call. Aw when I was working at the New York Post and I want to say it was probably around. Nineteen eighty one. Maybe and. He's he's Deputy Commissioner Deputy Commissioner or just about to become deputy commissioner and I I had decided as the Knicks beat writer that I was going to befriend Larry Fleisher. Who is the director of the Players Association and fancied myself as pro-labor Grew up in a labor union household and I was going to side with the players before for even knew anything right so I actually let turned over. My story wasn't a column. I think it was a story. Larry Fleisher who proposed doing away with the entire entire NBA draft. Why do we need to draft right? And I'm like you know that makes that makes a lot of sense to me so I write this evolutionary even now much less and you know for several years I kind of win alone and you can kind of make an argument for it. You know. Sort of a free enterprise system right but I wrote the story and David Stern and get a call the next day from Secretary and I pick up the phone and like I said I probably met him three or four or five times and and I answered the phone and he said he gets on and he goes this harvey and I said yes and he goes. I'm going to educate to. I'm going to educate you you for a few minutes. You fucking idiot and we went from there you know. He was merciless but yet always I pulled it back just enough to make you know that you know there's a possibility of lack of actual relationship here. But that was my first recollection of my have of my first. I Real David Stern W up and renew phone call and we all got those. I considered it. I don't know what point I realized is. This was the badge of honor. But this is a badge of honor. And it's funny harvey when we just seeing all the twitter tributes reading everybody's calms the last twenty four hours and we all have as as journalists. Cover this league so much. The same story these very very similar stories of our relationships with David these kind of love hate push rush poll frienemie type relationships where he was both In some ways mentor and Educator especially for you and Ah David our little closer in age so for some of us who came up and he was already well established as the commissioner for a long time before I come into the League or others is that WHO's pieces of red. He's very much kind of almost father figure and besides that he's the keeper of of all the NBA's history and secrets secrets and everything. So he did he would take on this role of like I want to educate. It's funny that he's saying this to you who was basically his almost pure at that point of. He's still doing his job job. He's not even commissioner yet and and you're covering the league but like that's just who he was I guess from the beginning and it certainly is the experience that I had with him and we all yes at some point. Got f-bomb to desk us. I'm glad we can curse on my podcast because David Stern wouldn't have wanted it any other way than for us to say fuck a few times because it was certainly one of his favorite words I I do think that it was probably very different to work for David. I mean reading a lot of the posts today on facebook and twitter twitter from people like Terry Lions and who's part of the communication staff for many years You know saying things like you know you you you didn't arrive at the NBA. Until David Curse you out in for doing something or doing something wrong and our cases I think it was a different different dynamic because to certain extent we did hold some leverage in power. David was marketing his league and it was important Kim particularly in the early years. You know to get the kind of press that he wanted for the sport and the kind of coverage for the athletes. He was trying to sell. So I think to a certain to a certain extent that you know that pullback from the total annihilation that David was capable of was inevitable because he wanted to Always maintain that relationship I remember in one of the Ninety S lockouts. He had a press conference was an update In the middle of lockout and the Times who's had a sign just kind of out of the Blue Murray Chasse who was a chroma generally baseball writer writer and columnist to cover the NBA lockout and Murray was long known to be essentially an ally of the Baseball Writers Association Association. I mean practically slept with ball them going too far but with G.. Those guys I mean it was. He was clearly pro row union in just about everything he wrote and Murray had written a series of articles for the Times that were clearly anti-star anti league and supporting the players. And I remember I was talking to David but after the press conference and Joel Lipman one of the attorneys attorneys with standing nearby and David started to say something to me. That sounded like you know one of these. I'm going to tell you in confidence. You know what's really going on. And y'all grabbed him by the arm and said David David Wait. Wait wait and David turned around and looked at Joel and said this is not Murray. Hey this is harvey and implicit in that or not. So implicit was the notion that I'm on their side. Not that I'm always going to write it the way they want want. I'm one of the regulars. There was a real difference if you one of the regular news who covered that sport and he kind of understood because I I will say this. We all WANNA be impartial. You'll want to write what we think. But it's particularly in the early eighties. Through the the end of that decade as League began to push more and more higher and higher and out of that ditch that it was in you know in the late seventies that all of us who covered the league felt a real pride that we were part of something that was growing. That was something special and David Sense that in all of us I could name you know whether there is Bob Ryan Alien Verizon you know Jan Hubbard Jack McCallum. I think it was. I think he looked at us. Not Addis he's guys or his writer so we're going to. You know who are going to adhere to is disciplined. Alright well what he wanted to but ultimately that we were pro. NBA Hey we believed in the product and we loved it we love the sport and believe in it and that was the difference. I think some of that changed in the later years when he felt this. There was some people coming along. Who are sort of interlopers? Who didn't necessarily have the League's best interest at heart? You know it's interesting too because you're describing you know a- and a general atmosphere in terms of the media and the sports world in general that that I think maybe a lot of my listeners or a lot of fans today probably don't have a true understanding of just because it was a very different world back then basketball was a distant third at best and you know baseball was still the national pastime and football was already a Bima and the NBA. You know forget whether the teams that were possibly going to fold in in the early eighties. When David I took over as commissioner it just the sport as a whole just didn't have the foothold in the capture of the of the collective the public's imagination that it has today this sport is a global a phenomenon of its own and that wasn't the case back then so it was probably really important and earlier on for David to to be able to identify that right? That's a that those of you covered league on a regular basis. Did so because you believed in basketball and believe in the NBA is a sport that that it wasn't just this little niche sport in America that would forever be overshadowed by football and baseball that it was that it had its own distinct identity in promise and and could be on on equal footing with those sports. I mean today. We don't have that discussion that the NBA is here and it is huge and it is to be reckoned with maybe the predictions of overtaking the NFL were a little premature but the NBA. It's I think people today might take for granted not realizing ising how far it had to come and so I think probably did shape a lot of how David saw the coverage and why he was so protective of it and when you talk about or any of US talk about David Redeeming us out and dropping dropping f bombs and whatever else. It's not because it was ever personal and it's not because we had fucked up that badly. Although occasionally we might have. David was just very protective protective of an advocate fierce advocate for his league. And so that's why I didn't mind badge of honor thing is like I kind of understood where he was coming from after awhile now cinder understood that if I pushed back and held my ground and especially if I did have a solid ground extent.
Remembering David Stern
"Longtime NBA. Commissioner David. Stern turn passed away on Wednesday after suffering brain hemorrhage he was seventy seven years old. Here's Jeremy Shop with remembrance of the man left an indelible mark on the sport of basketball ask ball in his thirty years as commissioner. David Stern made it possible for the NBA to scramble from the brink of bankruptcy and irrelevance to a position of global significance unthinkable in the dark days of the late nineteen seventy s and early nineteen eighties.

It wasn't stern imbued Michael Jordan with his gifts. Either but make no mistake. There might be no other sports executive ever who so deftly utilize the tools at his disposal. No other commissioner so clearly recognized recognized and exploited the resources of his sport with Stern in charge the NBA called itself fantastic but it was really a star factory the league marketed.

In the heat of the competition can hardly fathom how big a deal it was then in nineteen ninety two. There was the Dream Team. The ultimate expression of stern strategic thinking of his desire to make the league a global brand Dan with Jordan and magic in Barclay in Olympic uniforms. The world was suddenly. Cyprus turns unique brand of basketball. Diplomacy and capitalism ah soon the entire planet would be turned into a marketplace for NBA TV rights. And eventually the jerseys players such as Lebron James Ten years after the first Dream Team won gold in Barcelona yao-ming was the top overall pick in the draft. This was not coincidence in in. Its own way. Yes arrival was a milestone in the same order of magnitude as the magic bird rivalry in the rise of Michael Jordan. There was a good reason why stern headed seat. On the Council on Foreign Relations in terms of his management style. Stern was not a man to be trifled with he could be intimidating demanding reading imperious. In fact all of the above but he can also be charming and refreshingly blunt and honest even on the subject of the Owners for whom he worked for example when the New York Knicks lost a court battle about sexual harassment in their front office demonstrates that they're not the model intelligent management of course under stern rain for so long. There were many challenges and controversies. Even as total revenue players salaries skyrocketed. There were too many lockouts. There was infamous Pacers Pistons Pistons Brawl in Detroit which exposed yawning disconnect in the relationship between players and fans. Tim Donigi veteran. NBA referee went to prison on gambling related charges but in the end David Stern will be remembered for all the ways in which he elevated the game enriching his his owners and the players popularizing the league and places where it had been virtually no he also helped create the WNBA and champion day. Back when stern took over it would have seen it best unlikely that the NBA would become a global behemoth. It's perhaps the ultimate testament David stearns vision. The now it all seems to have been

"And I think teams, and I think this is a chance for these teams to try and gain a little bit of that power back in their negotiations. You've seen this to a small degree in the NFL where the stars are signing Sheard deals and getting some guaranteed money on the end. You're speaking about the quarterbacks and some of these other skill positions where they get a lot. Of guaranteed money, but it's not the same. It's not like baseball. It's not where you're investing three hundred million dollars into a guy. And I think also as these teams have watched this free agent process play its way out, and they see manny's not signing and Bryce in signing. They're seeing oh, wait we have a chance at these lower year offers, especially if we can tweak the AP, y which is the average per year if we can get that up a little bit higher. These guys might be invested to come play with us take an opt out at some point in time and re up later in their career it shifting the balance of power in the negotiating. But it's leaving it out there for the players to decide am I going to bet on myself or am I going to take that longer term deal for a little bit less per year? And the rules are kind of changing without notice the there was no notification for major league baseball and. It's ownership groups and okay. So maybe maybe I'll be naive here. Okay. You tell me of I am. Players will say there's collusion of major league baseball. That's why Harper Machado haven't signed. That's why a lot of veteran free agents haven't signed. And if I were operating in major league baseball, if I were David Stearns with the Balki brewers, or you know, Ned Colletti or lever. I'm talking to. I wouldn't be saying, hey, you're not gonna sign this guy. We're not gonna sign this guy. I would be saying I am in house. I need to take care of my house. And if I'm rebuilding the Miami Marlins. I'm not going to invest right now in twenty six year old even a great twenty six year old for ten years and three hundred million. Look at Albert pools is deal that he signed at age thirty two at age thirty two signed a ten year deal with an average salary of two of that. Attend. It's outrageous. He's made one all star game sense is had good years..

"Till nine o'clock coming up at eight oh seven it's courtside with the Milwaukee Bucks. Head coach like Putin. Holzer guest this week coming up in about seven or eight minutes. Mike exegesis CBS sports baseball writer and insider, what might be looking for before spring training begins and ultimately, the regular season believe it or not. I mean, it's like I two months away from the start of the regular season. March twenty eighth earliest start ever for the Milwaukee Brewers. That's like a month ahead of a month ahead. But usually I time out the NCAA tournament final four in opening day. Usually they kind of fall in fact championship Monday opening day in the walkie have fallen on the same day at times and not going to be the case this year. No that'll be like Sweet Sixteen round when opening day hit. So we've got that to look forward to spring training begins in less than a month. Big news today made by the Milwaukee Brewers, and it's a very different from the news. Made yesterday by the Milwaukee Brewers. Devolves brewers GM David Stearns who received a promotion today and a contract extension. We have come to learn that we don't know the terms of the deal in terms of dollar amounts or years. Very safe to say that brewers owner cats and Osceola is sick of fielding calls from teams interested in talking with David Stern. So move made today should help eliminate that in the future Stearns promoted to general manager and president of baseball operations. So it's a big move. It's a big move in a very smart move by Marquette because it keeps teams like the Mets and the giants and other teams who are interested in a young upstart general manager from leaving Milwaukee. And that was a little bit uncomfortable. I think when he got toward the end of last season when he heard that the Mets were snooping around a little bit even Doug Melvin was rumored to the Mets. Remember that? San Francisco Giants had some interest in why wouldn't you have interest in David Stearns? So the promotion. It delegates turns to a position where you can't really get any higher. If you're presided over baseball. I mean that is his baby the roster the draft. I mean, really there's so much more that goes into it. But the title of baseball operations president. I think is enough to fend other teams off. So it's not just one of the things you read. Oh, great. You know, he's earned it. Nice job. David Stearns, very happy for him. Yes. But I'm also very happy. He'll be in Milwaukee for the foreseeable future. I mean, this is brilliant, isn't he and you talk about the shift? Actually, we talk a lot about how pitchers are used. And he and Craig counsel are lockstep with how this team should be constructed. And what it's going to look like on the field. It's really interesting to watch their dynamic because. Admittedly, don't watch every baseball game in every market. I don't know the dynamic between general manager and manager all across the league. But I know the one in Milwaukee's pretty interesting, and it it seems pretty special plus not to mention if you think back to everything starts his done. There's not a lot of demarcation to what he's done on his resume in Milwaukee Brewers as far as moves that have been made the scoping last year. That was more of a, hey, if this works, it's awesome. And if it doesn't work it could kind of mess you up in the end and a little bit not really. But I mean, the fact that him in council can get along this easily. Putting out a roster, and there's no public arguments between the two about what they want or there's no backstabbing thrown anybody under the bus Copacetic. Which is weird. Sometimes it's weird to see that nice smooth energy between general manager manager scope thing didn't work out in Stern's admitted to it which I appreciate you didn't try and hang onto that. How many times do you get frustrated with the GM would just won't cut bait? I know. I know you traded forum and you gave up some assets. I get it. But is he really worth the headache and the money probably not Ted Thompson? Well, yes, that comes to mind for sure. This little different in that Jonathan scope wasn't homegrown. But it was still a mistake and you move on from your mistakes. People want to knock the bucks I ever draft pick uttered John Hammond. You know, who it was? Joe Alexander a lottery, pick out of West Virginia Hammond, and even John Horst was a member of that that group that's elected. Joe Alexander now that didn't work out. It didn't work out at all. Joe never lived up to any of his potential in the NBA. But you know, what the bucks did they got rid of them pretty quick? They phones on Salman's who became a pretty interesting player for a short period of time in Milwaukee. So moving out from mistakes. I think is a good general manager. You're not gonna be a thousand totally understand that good on the brewers for upping with David Stearns extension promotion. Hopefully, he stays in place for a long long period of time. Coming up next. We will talk baseball free agency with CBS sports baseball insider, Mike X, always really good stuff. From Michael check in with him coming up in just a moment. WTMJ.

"Compressor. We say good morning to general manager, David Stearns. Good morning, sir. Good morning. So so much to talk about the NFL is upon us. You got a roster to tweak we've got getters to discuss we've got lineups to hash over. But the burning question the sporting, Mr. Stearns is why didn't you tell us your new father? I'll tell you what I did that interview last week from the waiting room in the hospital. I was on about forty five minutes asleep with a huge smile on my face, knowing knowing what had happened about twelve hours earlier, absolutely incredible experience, and and still reveling in it. Well, congratulations. And I just want to know if it's okay because you can keep a secret. So well now, I'm going to give you a copy of all my internet passwords. How are we on diaper duty? We're we're learning. I think I think I'm learning. It's not quite as intuitive as as maybe I thought beginning. But I I'm definitely getting better. I'm getting better. Yeah. You'll get to the point trust me. I didn't know which end of a baby change what I had our first kid, but you can do it during a hockey timeout. I mean, it's. Born baseball pitching change. Repetition is a good teacher. Trust me. And you'll get a lot of practice. Let's talk about baseball. And indeed there is a roster to tweak. We don't expect you to tell us what you're gonna do. But can you give us just a little insight about how approaching the dodgers may alter your thinking? In terms of who you want to have on that roster. Sure, I think there are a couple of things that we're trying to consider here until ten AM tomorrow morning. We'll probably take most of that time to explore options. The first is it's a it's potentially a seven game series. And the main difference between what we're facing division series has to play three games in a row division series. We had two games off day two games off day in potentially a game five here. We may have to play three games in a row on the road in LA. So that alters the strategy a little bit in terms of potentially. How many pictures you want to carry what types of pitcher he want to carry and how we structure marketing strategy and the second the second thing is looking at how the dodgers lineup looking at some other strength. They are a quality. Lefthanded hitting lineup until we need to make sure that that the best. We can we can control that group, and whether that means slightly different pitchers or and there's left-handed pitcher or structuring our are pitching a little bit differently. Those are those are things that were still discussing what works for the truth is this is a really balanced whereabout the face probably the most balanced team we faced all year. And so getting the types of matchups that Craig has been so skilled at getting over the course of the September in the playoffs probably is going to be able to work talented. And so we're going to have to rely on our guys to to get out at times somewhat uncomfortable ups, and and we have confidence that they can go ahead and do that. Yeah. You really got to watch out for some of those dodgers pitchers. Don't you? The pitching staff. There is a really strong staff. And obviously we have guys like quite Kershaw and Walker. Bueller? They got they got some of the headlines, but other other arms that have pitched really well as well review is on a incredible run here retail has thrown the ball. Well, they've got some arms out of the bullpen that has stepped up over the past two or three weeks. So there's there's a reason these are the two teams left because two best teams the National League. I think the playoff tournament got it right now. Now, we get the play if he has the right to go to the World Series. How hot you attribute your team to being you mentioned the off days that you're not going to have as many as in the National League championship series? But you know, you look at all the days that you had in September taking all of those Thursdays off kind of making up for the gauntlet right before. And after the all star break. How much of the success of of the team? Do you attribute to having that regular not not a lot of time off, but certainly a couple of days here and there to to just rest your bullpen. I think off days help I think the depth of the roster helps a little bit especially in September. Where we just have more guys to turn to frankly in in the postseason somewhat similar where we don't need to carry quite as many pictures as we do during the regular season because of the off days and relatively short durations of the series. So you can go to these guys frequency in the playoffs. So I I think all of that plays a part, and then really the biggest backers are playing well, then we have a number of guys who have stepped up with a number. He hits an intake spot pitching staff outstanding. So you combine all that? And we've been able to go on the type of run that we've seen over the past couple of weeks brewers general manager and new father, David Stearns, joining us live on WTMJ. Congratulations to you wife Whitney into Nora. Thank you very much. I appreciate it. Take care. We'll do it next week. It's eight twentieth. WTMJ? This is Steve eighty.

And I think about on one end of the dial is complete young talent aggregation and young talent development. And on the other end of the dial is what some big markets do sometimes which is complete free agent investment complete play for this year. And there will be times where we have to turn that dial a little bit towards the short term investment.

About we're joined now by NBA champion. Dante Jones moved to the NBA where Jimmy Butler demanded a trade out of Minnesota yesterday and appears to have a site set on the law on Los Angeles though not the team. You might think Butler actually listed the clippers among his preferred destinations you according to a report from ESPN's agent order. Now, sqi that has since been deleted LeBron's decision to join the Lakers, made them a less appealing option for the t. wolves star. This has been. It was reporting agent where he story originally that Jimmy Webb net interested in being a side kick for LeBron they've since removed that from the story, but I buy, I buy it that what LeBron is actually created is a bunch of wannabes. Everybody wants to be LeBron and whether they can be LeBron or not. And so I do think there will be some. Reluctance from some superstars, maybe even quiet Leonard. Certainly, maybe Jimmy Butler here. I think there will be a reluctance from some superstar to come play Robin to LeBron's, Batman because they all want to be Batman, like LeBron. Yeah, I applaud Jimmy Butler. I because he wants to go to the best franchise NBA Los Angeles chip city. Why not know that before you even get there, but also what's wrong with knowing your value, what's wrong with knowing your worth and saying, estimating your no, no, wait a minute franchise player. Jimmy Butler is and he's saying, I am applying for the position of CEO now which franchises need a CEO not senior VP when you play LeBron at best you're the senior VP you're never going to be the you. So he wants to go somewhere and have that impact. So it's time for a while he is them, and this is what Jimmy Butler is thinking. Do you want to go somewhere and carried a torch, or do you. Wanna go somewhere to light the torch big difference to the Lakers guess who you are on the torch bearer. Karen, if from sixteen seventeen in the shadow of the Bronx, you go to the clippers like that thing go, I charge legend of the franchise, Jimmy Butler. Do you and do it right. I respect him for having an opinion for knowing where he wants to go. He wants to play with everyone's not gonna wanna play with the Bron James. He's not an Indo be, oh, he's not for everyone, but Jimmy just decided where where he wants to be and we know of course, Thomas shown us that wherever you say, you want to go is not where you end up and where you end up, maybe the best place for you and you realize that when you get there, allow Paul George, so Jimmy and ally.

"Probably fine but the way david stearns and craig counsel what did this team is they'd try so guy like regular becomes a little bit of a hamstring because he's one position player you could argue themes probably is but he proved that he can play left field although i wouldn't say it's position number one eight start to jaffna carphone here on wgm jay walk into the show jeff pay as much as i hate to say because i really think he's one of the alltime brewer i think the experiment that first base is gonna blame out i think they gotta move braun and get whatever pitching they can i think you leave choi down in triple eight even though he hasn't that opt out on may fifteenth you try and convince him to stay at aaa for insurance down there and keep dame's goulart bird at first up here i think if ryan braun didn't have the trade clause provision and the ten five writes that he has where he can veto any trade that might become a little easier said than done if you're going to trade braun it's it's the dodgers or bust i mean that that's it that's the only team brawn would approve a trade to and i just don't think they have a need i think they had interest a couple of years ago but i think that ship has kind of sailed so i think you know to your point you might see a guy that struggles a little bit at first base although i think he's healthy that the bad is totally fine but i think moving braun is is darn near impossible unless the dodgers indicate that they wanna play ball there i think for the right deal you could get ryan to go somewhere else i west coast certainly arizona another california game but i think at this point i think you could get them to go somewhere west of the mississippi i really do west of the mississippi you might be right but that may not be until the trade deadline when when things really start to kind of pan out and you can identify who the contenders are and who the contenders aren't so i appreciate the phone call it's stop it's a sticky position because you're talking about a veteran at a new position he's making a good amount of money he said.
