Is It OK for Fans to Boo NBA Commissioner?

With the NBA Draft coming and going Thursday night, we have reflected on some of the top picks, including the University of Kentucky and the University of North Carolina (UNC) tying each other's first round picks total with four overall. Who was present at the NBA Draft as is the case every year? Long-time NBA Commissioner David Stern.

But that's not all. Who received the most boos Thursday night as the draft was broadcasted on ESPN and NBA TV? NBA Commissioner David Stern. And why exactly would fans boo Stern? Maybe they're mad the draft was held at the Newark, NJ Prudential Center instead of the prestigious Madison Square Garden in New York City.

Maybe there's more NJ Nets than we thought, as the draft was held in the team's old home before moving to Brooklyn. Perhaps the people there just happen to be Jim Rome fans and were mad at Stern for asking the popular radio host if he "still beats his wife." Or maybe those fans all think the referees stink and want Stern to overhaul the league's officiating with new employees that aren't senior citizens. Whatever the case may be, David Stern isn't a popular man these days.

    He's part of the NBA, and if the players can get booed, what's to make him be treated any different than they are?

    Absolutely. He is a public figure. Booing OR cheering give him instant confirmation on HOW people feel about his rulings.

    No matter what business or market David Stern has his hand in he always seems to find a way to screw the system. He needs a pie in the face. I would like to see a press conference where he buckles under pressure for a whole season to a slew of questions he can't answer. He's a prime example of what a sport can do to an athlete when you throw a few dollar figures in their faces. No wonder some of my friends stopped watching the NBA.

    You are right about that.
    I would like to send a special "YOU SUCK!!!!!!!" out to David Stern for being the ass that he is.

    Being a good NBA commissioner would mean that you have to be able to withstand being booed, Stern needs that experience

    David Stern has turned the once proud NBA into WWE wrestling. If you don't believe that he passes down orders to the refs and rigs the playoffs to protect his favorite teams and stars (Kobe, the Lakers, the Spurs, LeBron) you aren't paying attention. I'm pretty sure he s**t a brick when OKC went to the finals.

    It's an entertainment league. Anything that is purely for entertainment can be booed or cheered, but surely in a respectful way and with good taste.

    He has ruined the sport starting with the fixing of the 1985 draft lottery when his buddy purposefully BANGED the knicks card 4th in the stack on the front of the hopper so stern could guarantee the knicks got ewing to this damn uncontrollable child named lebron winning the title by faking being hit.

    It is more than ok, he shouldnt even be allowed at games, actually he should not go. After what he did to the lakers and other things that he has done he should be removed from office
