By now you’ve seen the announcement — David Stern is stepping down as commissioner of the NBA effective Feb. 1, 2014 (30 years to the day since he took the job). Adam Silver, the current deputy commissioner and the guy you remember as the owners bulldog during the labor negotiations last year, is taking over for him. By now you’ve started talking about Stern’s legacy.

Now, here it is from the man himself.

    I understand he is leaving 30 years to the day he got the job..but he is gonna reitre in the middle of the season? That seems a bit odd..

    Too bad there’s no statue anywhere of him that can be torn down and beaten with shoes.
