Despite so many predictions of the Heat winning the championship, Stern cautioned against “mailing the trophy” to Miami before the season. Stern reminded reporters that he said the same thing last season, and the Mavericks surprised everyone with its run to the championship.


The last time that David Stern predicted the Heat won't win the championship:

http://www.aolnews.com/2010/10/30/david-stern-supports-lebron-james-decision-to-move-to-heat/

"These roster changes in Miami have certainly occasioned a fair amount of publicity and it's kind of fun to watch all the speculation and the combination of 'mail the trophy to Miami' or not, 'play the season' or not, etc. But it's a great game and we always play the season and it always has interesting results.

A commissioner should never be commenting on the championship chances of a team in their league.

A commissioner also shouldn't veto a trade agreed upon by the affected parties, shouldn't rig lotteries day in day out, shouldn't hire referees that rig games, shouldn't allow Owners to sign deals that got them to this lock-out in the first place, or plain retain Joey Crawford either.... but hey, It's David ****ing Stern!

All he said is let's not hand out the championship to anyone until the games have actually been played. He would have said the same thing about any other team.

I don't see an issue :shrug:

lol just imagine the article:

"After a hard fought seven game series between the Heat and the Thunder, David Stern vetoes Miami's game 7 victory, demands the game to be played again."

And that's where about half of the overall fanbase waits for Mcmahon to take his Stern mask off.

Stern is just trying to spin the fact that he pissed off a lot of owners amd fans by allowing Mia to build there team the way they did. There had to be a whole heck of a lot of scheming going on to put that big 3 together the way they did.

The ratings it's caused have been great, but realistically there will be 3-4 less teams in the NBA because of it, in the near future.

Misleading thread....

He never said "They won't win" like the OP stated.

He said "cautioned against “mailing the trophy” to Miami before the season" which means he doesn't think people should say Heat will win the chip already before the season is played out because of last year. He never said, they won't win. He just saying you can't predict these things.

Stop trying to be the victim here OP.

He isn't outright saying the Heat will or won't win. He has a right to his own opinion like everyone else. There are other teams in the league besides the Heat you know?

The HEAT will win it all this year, unless stern veto's it.

The reason he vetoed the trade because it was a bad trade for the Hornets. Since the league owns the Hornets they can decide whether to go through with a trade like a real owner would do. And that trade was terrible for New Orleans. Although the GMs liked the trade, the league didnt like it since they are in charge of New Orleans. He didnt deny it because of the thought of a super team.

They traded a bunch of crap players, but since they were young it was seen as fair? Same thing with teh Clippers. In 3 years nobody will even remember who they traded for CP3.

Why do I get the feeling you've seen very little of Eric Gordon?

His game winner last night versus Phoenix is a good sign of what type of skill/poise they can expect from Gordon over in New Orleans. Dude's a top 5 shooting guard and just had his 23rd birthday a couple days ago.

Haha..Ive seen about 75% of all the games hes played. Not saying dude is a scrub. Hes a very solid player, a good role player. Im not sure what you think he will be but he'll never be a franchise player, he'll never be a #1 option on a team and he'll never make an all-star team. Hes not that kind of talent. Hes a very good role player and will be for his career. Not a bad thing at all. But some people on here make it sound as if the kid will be some great amazing talent. Hes just not that.

LOL get over it. You're whinging cos Miami isn't winning, people whining about Stern cos he rigged the lottery yet if you won you'd deny it, it's the refs fault when they get something wrong, and Stern owned the Hornets so he could do whatever he wants with them, and if anything it would of been Cuban having a little ***** about how Dallas didn't get CP3....so build a bridge and get the **** over it cos you're wasting your time whinging/whining/*****ing about Stern as he has actually done a good job

I see absolutely nothing inappropriate about what he said. He didn't even predict they won't win, he just said it isn't a lock. What's the problem with it?

This. Cry about it dude. You guys are gonna whine about the ****ing commissioner because your losing. Go rub one off and chill out.

The last time that David Stern predicted the Heat won't win the championship:

A commissioner should never be commenting on the championship chances of a team in their league.

You're offended that Stern thinks there are other teams capable of winning a championship? Plus he doesn't think Miami won't win he just doesn't think you shouldn't call them the champions if they haven't won yet...

It's threads like this that don't do Heat fans any favours.

He didn't comment about anyones chances... or lack-there-of. All he said was don't give Miami the trophy cuz nothing is guarenteed. Obviously.
