David Stern was in great comedic form last night at his final NBA Draft as he joked about the boos and mocked the hecklers. The Barclay boos didn’t surprise the retiring commissioner but Adam Silver’s guest after Stern announced the 30th pick and Silver as the next commissioner was a huge surprise. Hakeem Olajuwon, dressed in a bow tie like the one he wore when Stern announced “Akeem’s” name back in 1984 as the #1 pick, came out to the delight of everybody.
It would of been a lot funnier if they had Hakeem just walk out instead of Silver going over The Dream’s resume but it was still a nice surprise cameo.
