David Stern

After an exciting NBA finals in June, the league’s owners played a foolish game of chicken with their players and began a lengthy lockout on July 1. While both sides deserved blame for delaying the season’s start, no figure did more to prolong the conflict than NBA Commissioner David Stern. Then in November, after the players had rejected what Stern said would be the owners’ last offer, he apocalyptically announced that “we’re about to go into the nuclear winter of the NBA.” Thankfully for fans, it was a short winter—negotiations resumed and the season was saved.
