David Stern wins: Stan Van Gundy to stop talking about referees

Apr 25, 2010, 10:16 AM EDT

Call him heavy handed, but David Stern gets results. He gets what he wants.

He tells coaches to stop complaining about the referees, throws out a couple of fines and….

Stan Van Gundy said he is done talking about the referees during the playoffs, as the Associated Press reported.

“I’ve been fined for saying how good they were this year, and I’ve been fined for criticizing them,” Van Gundy said. “So nobody understands more that we’re just not to talk about them at all.”

Told Van Gundy’s comments about an hour later, Stern immediately smiled.

“I’m glad to hear that,” he said. “Isn’t that new?”

When was the last time David Stern lost a battle? Don’t cross the man.

    Kurt-your an idiot-Stern doesn’t win-his league lost 400 mil this year-how is that winning? The guy is a joke and so are you for writing this article. SVG just didn’t want another 35k fine because it doesn’t what is said, it doesn’t change Stern. His company hasn’t evolved and that’s why its in the position it is in.
