David Stern Disappoints

On October 26, 2006, in General, by Neil Stevens

David Stern, NBA Commissioner, has gone pro-gun control. Sure, he’s only asking his players not to carry guns outside their homes, despite their regular need to travel, but in doing so he’s parroting pro-gun control propaganda. Says the AP:

“It’s a pretty, I think, widely accepted statistic that if you carry a gun, your chances of being shot by one increase dramatically,” Stern said during his preseason conference call. “We think this is an alarming subject, that although you’ll read players saying how they feel safer with guns, in fact those guns actually make them less safe. And it’s a real issue.”

With Kobe already having a chance of missing the Lakers’ season opener, this sort of stunt is the last thing I needed for my basketball morale.

Maybe Mark Cuban is right, and the NBA is spending too much effort to expand internationally, that it’s neglecting to keep its fan base here happy and growing.
