"Gravitating to what is now like a life that young people are living on line you know like that plays right into the Twitter or like the Twitter culture right into the Instagram culture and something that young people can really gravitate to I know it sounds silly but I I think it really makes a huge difference in the other thing too would talk about social media the NBA is soul loose with their social media policy like you can post NBA highlights like clips and they like mom get taken down no that's it so brilliant on their part because it spreads the growth of the game and it just makes it NBA Twitter is a real thing like you're watching the game on you know on your TV and you're also like kind of watching it with like this whole other universe of people who are who are watching in the NBA it's it's it's really smart yeah in the in the play the point that you mention initially Maggie in terms of realizing the players the personality cell in the game so all the players obviously having the great sponsorship deals that he was able to get but look at where the NBA game is now and look at how all that works with the explosion of social media and Twitter and how connected the NBA fans deals with their athletes and a place to the point where you that sells the drama in the NBA selves and you know stern understood about how what you needed to do to market and sell your players and realize it's more than just what's happening on the courts was happening off the court as well it's got a visionary with that idea and just like as a as a personal thing like I I worked at the NBA when I first got out of college or work for NBA entertainment and squawk as New Jersey and I'll tell you what like David stern was very intimidating guy and then later on you know being a part of the media and at some of the a lot of those press conferences during the lockout of which David stern presided over a few you know he he he would not be afraid to to show you off at a press conference he would not be afraid to be combative he had great interviews whenever one boomer had his show on MSG he yeah it was awesome he had great interviews with David stern and it was always entertaining and and he could be like you become a salty but he could also be you know kinda knew where it was coming from yeah just seem like all all business you might be like the village yeah right after food was greatly enjoy the desk for the crowd for more police that was always a he leaned into that today he got sick of it and and I was also as I said you know Jack McCallum knew him very well and I was reading some of the tweets the Jack was putting out and interesting you know apparently Michael Jordan you know felt like when he retired Mira and when play baseball and came back that you know there was a lot going on with the rumors about his gambling debts and weather's father was murdered overs gambling that something like that apparently Jordan thought that David stern really could have done a lot more to school this Welsh and into stopping curtail all of those rumors and and a lot of that talk and didn't do it and so you know for as much as I think he elevated the superstars I think there was also like a serious power struggle you know where he wanted the power and he retained the power and even while the stars of the league or Greg shining as bright as they were and were having as much John control of their careers as they did not have to legend David stern pass away and certainly thoughts and prayers out to stern's family friends and everyone as a sports icon a legendary NBA commissioner former NBA commissioner passes away you know it's funny once I was I had to happen to be able to talk to Roger Goodell and it was right it was a while ago but it's like right near lebron's decision and he said he was watching it with David stern I would rather have we had a likely sake I like it live from rock show no I think they were an Aspin or some other course hundred also like a looser Maggie with right here the fed and they're not like us.
