Earlier in the week we shared with you Stan Van Gundy’s comments that likened the commish to a third world dictator. Yesterday, David Stern fired back with the following response:
“I would just venture a guess that we’re not going to be hearing from [Van Gundy] for the rest of the season. When he stops and reads what he said and realized what he did, he will say no more. I have whatever influence the bylaws of the constitution give me and they are substantial. But I have a feeling that some modicum of self-restraint will cause Stan and the team for which he works to rein in his aberrant behavior.”
Sometimes Stern uses words that are a little too big for the average reader. Let’s just get this over with and have the two of them duke it out in a cage fight already.
