Does David Stern Know Where the Warriors Play?

Although I've been very critical of NBA Commissioner David Stern's recent moves and think it's time for him to retire, there's no question that he's a brilliant man who has done many wonderful things for the league during his tenure. Having said that, I have to say I'm pretty disappointed in his seemingly bitter attitude about the Warriors upsetting the the 67 win Mavs in the 1st round of this year's playoffs and his unfair double standards for technicals and fines on the Dubs during this past postseason. But I'm even more disappointed in Stern's appalling ignorance about the Warriors [FoxSports.com- Ben Maller]:

NBA Commissioner David Stern, appearing as a guest on FSN's "Best Damn Sports Show Period,"on the excitement surrounding Golden State's playoff run: "To see Golden State give a good account of itself, that was actually incredible -- I've never seen these laid back San Franciscans behave like they did. That was wonderful to see."

I sincerely hope that Stern spends the offseason catching up on these key pieces of information:

  • The Warriors don't play in San Francisco, they play in Oakland.
  • The entire Bay Area (plus the bandwagon fans from across the nation) filled up the Roaracle Arena, not just the good folks from SF.
  • People constantly complain that the NBA needs its big market teams to do well. Guess what? The Bay Area is a top sports market and infatuated with hoops. Instead of whining about how the Boston Celtics, Philadelphia 76ers, and New York Knicks stunk up the joint last season, how about celebrating the Bay Area's return to the NBA map? It makes both dollars and sense.

Is David Stern sleeping on the Warriors?
