Even though Rome can be a tool at times, Stern showed his ass.
fug him, I hope this is the beginning of his downfall

Rome is typically a jerk but Stern owes the man an apology.

Rome and Stern deserve each other, they are one in the same. In an ideal world there would be more Jim Everetts to modify the behavior of self centered jerks like these two.

There's too much Jew-on-Jew hatred in this world. These guys need to put their differences aside and attack the real enemy - Nazis!

Can't say I'm a fan of either guy, but talk about a low blow. Kudos to Rome for keeping his cool after that kind of comment. How great would it be if Stephen A. Smith turned around and asked him the same question about the fix.

Yeah, the funniest part of the video was definitely when Stern implied that Stephen A. Smith was the paragon of journalism.

You guys do realize David Stern wasnt actually accusing Jim Rome of beating his wife, right? Its an expression that is used as a common example of a loaded question- basically David Stern was accusing Rome of asking him a loaded question. Though to be honest Rome's question wasnt really a loaded question so much as a Jim Rome being a dick.

His goal was to piss off Stern (he was never going to learn anything useful by asking it), and I wish he had actually brought up specific reasons why people think the lottery is rigged rather than going with the "well people are talking about it being rigged"

No, that was Stern being a complete asshole. It was a legit question. That comment may be the end of Stern.

Just because it is a legit question doesnt preclude Jim Rome from being a dick in the way he asked it. Though I may be biased since I think Jim Rome sounds like a dick every time he opens his mouth

Realistically you are never going to learn anything from asking the commissioner of the NBA whether his league is rigged, but you can at least back up your accusations with evidence rather than "people are talking about it"
