Nothing new in what he told the Orlando Magic. The juicy stuff is in the fact that he’s in LA right now – probably talking to Steve Nash about how much better the lobs will be coming from him rather than Jameer Nelson. Nelson’s lobs are also called airballs and missed shots.
In other related news, David Stern called out Dwight’s agent Dan Fegan as the news leaker of this meeting.
“It’s very unique, especially if it’s driven by a quote source that happens to be Dwight’s agent,” Stern told USA TODAY Sports in a telephone interview. ” ‘A source in the meeting. Oh, OK, who might that be?”
“No, I don’t, and I don’t think it’s (Magic CEO) Alex Martins either,”
“To me, it is the soap opera our fans turn in for – the drama on the court and the drama off the court,” Stern said. “When we cease to have a story popping up, we probably won’t exist.
“I think what it is, is that that’s the way we are. That’s the way it has been in baseball and the NFL and hockey and basketball. And frankly, it engages our fans, it engages our reporters, it engages our bloggers. It makes people happy, mad, sad. It’s just the life in sports.”
